- Lansing IL, Lansing IL - 12/15/2010
Because of No low VHF antenna is small.Full100% signal on all major Chicago stations at 25 miles south of downtown.This is after a4-way splitter and cabling from Chimney tothe basement splitter.

I live in Warrenton VA which according to the DTV reception maps (fcc.gov antennaweb.org) is about 40 miles from all of the local broadcast stations in Washington DC. Because I was going to be mounting the antenna in my attic (using a Winegard DS-2000) I chose this model due to its [relatively] smaller size versus the HD7084P. It was a bit awkward to orient between the attic structures (it is

This is a decent performer However there sems to be a problem with the circuit board shorting out. I feel they could impose a better phasing network like those of predicessor Chromstar series which offered a over under phase wire system See Hd7000r model for description. UHF director system has poor lock in insulators use needlenose pliers to tighten or adjust for the money it is OK
Excellent value and great reception

Replaced an old roof antenna with this model. Works better than expected and looks great.
Best antenna for the money

Simply put the best antenna ! Pull.s in signal from 80 plus miles away great job winegardand solid signal! Great beamwith like the DB 8.
- Brentwood, wood TN - 3/28/2013
This antenna performed better than expected in my application. I am very pleased with the reasonably compact size and excellent performance.
- East Chinq, Chinq MI - 3/28/2013
This antenna brings all the digital stations from as far as 50 miles away just perfect.

Excellent product [...]
- Glen Cove, Cove NY - 3/28/2013
This replaced a 20 year old Radio Shack antenna that was only giving so-so DTV reception.This is in the Long Island NY area about 20miles from the NYC transmitters.Nice improvement especially on UHF and it seems well made.Its feeding 3 TVS and a DVDR/VCR with no RF amplifier.
Great Antenna...working great
- San Bernardino, San Bernardino - 3/28/2013
I live in an area where there is a clear line of sight to the TV Transmission towers but Im about 53 miles away. I was concerned that this antenna would not be good enough because the specified range is smaller but it actually worked just great.I read a few websites regarding antennas and basically a few experts said if you have a good strong signal then the range doesnt matter so much. The
More than I expected

Im about halfway between Denver CO and Cheyenne WY.The antenna is pointed to Denver.Half the channels I get come from Wyoming and the other half come from Denver.I installed this antenna 4 feet above roof-line with a Chromstar mast-mounted pre-amp running to 7 TVs/HTPCs.I currently get 54 channels; about a third of these have HD programming.Id considered going with a AntennaCraft Y5-
Inexpensive and works great
- Largo, - 3/28/2013
This antenna has exceeded my expectations. I am very please with the reception coming from the Tampa area about 25-30 miles away.
- Orlando, Florid - 3/28/2013
The physical size of this antenna is so small for such great gain. Its construction is second to none certainly good enough for commercial quality.This antenna is used roof top in Orlando to receive Tampa stations over 85 miles away with great consistency. It is used with a preamplifier .The high band performance is better than the7-13 5 element yagi (specified gain 6.7db) and the uhf as good a

Easy to assemble and hook up.This antenna is currently located in my attic but will mounted on the roof this fall.I is very powerful and all the TV stations come in clear.
- Orlando, FL - 4/5/2013
This antenna is working great. Given I am only ~10 miles from the stations I want. Mounted it inside the attic and getting 54 channels clear as day. Don't know why I didn't ditch the cable box long ago. Wife is super happy!! Thanks Solid Signal for a great price, cheap and fast shipping!!
- Apache Junction, AZ - 7/24/2013
I am 28 miles from the local transmitters and have been using a GE 24769 Futura. While it worked exceptionally well for the UHF stations, the VHF had bad pixilation problems. I considered the larger Antennacraft, but decided against it due to lower gain and exaggerated antenna range claims. The Winegard is absolutely perfect for me - no more problems!
READ BEFORE YOU INSTALL ONE !!!
- Benson, NC - 8/12/2013
Recently installed one of these. There seems to be a problem with VHF terminal side of the board. The problem is not the board but the 4 slots on top of the cartridge housing where VHF lines enter. It also gives WATER/MOISTURE the same opportunity thus shorting out the board. Solution!! apply epoxy glue & cover all holes even coat the wires where they enter the box once they cure no moisture should enter I installed one with an AP pre-amp it really does the job
Not too big, lightweight. Not an eyesore on the chimney of a small/medium house. Reception is adequate.
- Landisville, PA - 12/11/2013
My In-Laws have an old 10 foot channel master this is hideous. I swore I would never install something so big and I didn't. I purchased this 7694 and haven't looked back. I was using a cheap phillips antenna before that did quite well but I couldn't pick up some VHF stations 30 miles away. I'm using no rotor and its only about 10 inches above the tip of my chimney. I reached my goal of pulling in all major network stations (abc, nbc, fox, cbs, pbs, & cw) plus a couple bonus stations. All together I think I get 20 channels from a scan. I am also using NO amplifier of any kind. I have a 50ft run to a 3 way splitter and then to 3 different sets. All sets are seeing 70%+ signal on all channels and no pixelation/distortion in 2 weeks of watching. My In-Laws 10 foot channel master does pull in a few extra station than mine but for $50 this thing is the best bang for buck hands down.
Easy setup, great product!
- Port Charlotte, FL - 4/6/2014
Put it up to 18ft side roof top mount. I receive transmitter signals up to 60+ miles from Tampa Bay.
All UHF/VHF channels come in steady. Also receives all channels from the opposite direction in Ft Myers very strong.
Built very strong and compact for an antenna this powerful. Can be used in the attic, but I believe you need to use and amplifier to make up for signal drop.
I would have given it 5 stars, but during weather variations the 60+ mile transmitter signals will fluctuate somewhat, specially during the Summer weather when winds are blowing from the South.
If you live withing 45 miles of stations this is the antenna you want!
Purchased and installed for my daughter. I liked the design, respected Winegard, and expected it to do at least 60 miles.

- Idaho Falls, ID - 8/10/2014
I had a moonlighting job of installing TV antennas, on my days off my regular job, for about 20 years. I know antennas and their capabilities. My daughter wanted a small DTV antenna that would pull in local stations that were 35 miles away and 65 miles respectively. The 2 directions were 40 degrees apart. A higher gain antenna would have narrowed the beam too much. The design of this antenna demonstrated a wider beam of pick up and still enough elements to give good gain. I purchased it and put it up 15 ft. The coax run was 65 ft and I was ready to add a preamp if necessary. The signal at the TV set was 90 to 95%. The weakest transmitters signal from the 65 mile area was still at 70%. The preamp was not necessary. This antenna is under rated in its performance. I believe it would pull in stations 70 miles away if it was mounted 40 to 50 ft up. Good antenna for receiving stations 30 degrees apart.
Exceeded expectations, 72 digital channels in The Woodlands,TX
- Houston, TX - 8/23/2014
In my location I can receive 0 channels on standard rabbit ears, about 40 very unstable channels if I use indoor Terk with 20dB gain, but the indoor one has to be moved around depending on the channel and the reception is very unreliable. I had an unused satellite dish from DerecTV, so installation of the Winegard was easy: just attached it to the DirecTV poll and used their cable too. The only negative moment was when after I unfolded the bigger reflectors (the long sticks) I noticed that I did it in a little wrong order. Unfortunately it is impossible to fold them back without damaging the sockets. The assembly instruction is really poor. For the rest everything was perfect: the antenna started working without any problem, found 72 digital channels, some are evidently from other cities (several channels are duplicated). I also decided to use the 20dB amplifier which I used with my old indoor antenna because some channels are not very stable (once per 2-3 minutes get stuck for a moment) when the weather is changing. With the amplifier it works fine.
