Unexpected performance in Eloy, AZ

I had been using an indoor antenna for my bedroom Sony that received at most 23 channels, usually 19 and changing constantly. I hoped this antenna would give me steady reception of the Phoenix network stations. I mounted it on the same mast as the old antenna hooked up to my living room antenna which gets 48 channels, adding a 5' section of 1" pipe. After completion of the installation, I turned the control box on and started the auto program function on the Sony. Almost immediately it started to find stations. I couldn't believed how many it was adding up. By the time the progress bar got to the end, it had found 85 stations. I checked out each and every station, whether 1080i, 720p or 480p, they all were perfect pictures. A majority would still come in even if I turned off the preamp. I'm about 70 miles SE of Phoenix and 50 miles NW of Tucson. If I rotate the antenna 180 degrees, I can probably add 15-20 more channels from the Tucson area, giving me over 100 channels with this wonder of an antenna. The above ground height is approximately 25 feet. You can't go wrong, especially for this price.


Antenna works, but...

Assembly was quite easy, but when erected on 1" pole, the two steel inside flat backup nuts interfered with the close tolerance allowed for the 1" pole to slide inside the rotor. I had to drill a hole through the pole and insert a 2" bolt to secure the antennae to the pole. A 3/4" pole is too sloppy. Then, after erecting the pole to a height of 15 ft. it didn't have any power to the rotor. After disassembling the works, I discovered the supplied cable had a crush mark near the end fitting, when I cut 12 ft off and attached a new fitting, reassembled and erected the unit, it worked. Sadly, the remote gets confused on which direction to turn the antennae, it has a mind of its own and will turn randomly regardless of the buttons pushed. The antenna works quite well, it picks up the Tucson stations from Mesa, AZ



We live in an area where the closest broadcasting station is more than 75 miles away. With this antenna, only about 4 feet off the ground, we are able to receive 28 channels! That is amazing, considering there are only 18 channels broadcasting from the Birmingham viewing area and we live 60 miles away.


Goodbye cable bill

I bought this because of price and have had an off the shelf " quality" one for years, still needed cable. I live in Jacksonville NC and it said it has a 150 mile range . For cheaper than off the shelf I thought I would try it. The other ones are subject to people walking and such. I just wired it in, plugged it in , hit scan and surprised to find over 40 channels including multiple networks where I can watch out of market football, or my market. I get at least two of every network and each of them have sub stations attached to them. Great buy and highly recommended. I just put it in window and can't imagine if I actually hung it outside.
