WOW!! Biomedguy-R - Fort Gibson, OK - 9/16/2013 Purchased this antenna for halfprice, one day sale for $65.00. I have a Winegard 8200 on my house, 14 ft boomlength and about 10 feet wide at the widest point. The flatwave is for my new shop and winegard convinced me to go with this. 14 inches by 14 inches and 4 inches thick!! I was reluctant to try this, but Windgard said this was the new technology. Very easy to install, hooked up the amp to my usb port on my new LG tv and ran a channel scan. What results, 44 channels and I live SE of Tulsa, OK about 40 to 50 miles from the towers. Could not be happier.
Good UHF Signal Reception RetiredGI - Honea Path, SC - 10/18/2013 I have a mix of UHF and VHF high stations within 35 to 55 mile range. All the UHF stations that I received with a large outside antenna were received with good signal levels. Although the antenna specs say it will receive VHF high stations, I haven't had any luck with both channel 7 and 13. These stations are located 45-55 miles away. This is a good antenna for those areas with UHF stations and may work with close VHF stations.
compact better look - raleigh, NC - 11/6/2013 This antenna is quite pricey it's true value would be about $50.00 most of the pricing would be in marketing. I am sure it would be valuable to those in condo units There is no substitute for Rod type antennas which are slowly fading away There are many of this type of antenna available even the indoor type that stick to your window or the amplified piece of cardboard
The Flatwave Air FL6550A well worth it!!! Juni - Round Lake, IL - 11/10/2013 The best purchase ive made yet...should of cut the cable cord a while back....49 channels in all its HD beautiful glory on 8 tvs!!! Very easy to setup with existing cable lines.
Great antenna. No more cable - Morris, IL - 12/27/2013 I am 50 miles from Chicago. The antenna is on top of a two story house. I can pick up all the major channels from Chicago. CBS (2-1) is sometimes intermittent. A perfect antenna that is not an eye sore.
Nice compact antenna and amplifier. Andrew - Clinton, IA - 12/30/2013 I bought this antenna for my mother-in-law to replace other antennas she had been struggling with. She is approx. 41 miles from the tower she gets stations from and had been getting a choppy signal on every indoor antenna she had tried. I tested the Winegard FL6550A in her living room before installing and noticed an immediate improvement. Since it is the middle of winter, I opted to install the antenna in a first floor attic. Despite there being 3-4" of snow and roof in the way, the antenna is receiving a good signal. I picked up twice as many channels as the other cheaper indoor antennas she had tried. I really like the fact that I could plug the antenna amplifier into the USB port on the new TV I also bought her. The Winegard FL6550A had everything I needed to install the antenna in the attic and is mounted on a stud with bracket and pole. I was also happy with the Solid Signal support that got back to me right away to confirm I chose the right antenna for my application.
Excellent antenna!!! Matt - Crown Point, IN - 1/28/2014 I purchase this antenna from Solid Signal about 6 months ago. It works great. I have the antenna mounted indoors facing a window. If I face it North, I get all Chicago stations but CBS. If I face it east, I get the same stations along with several South Bend, IN channels. Which include Channel 22 (CBS)out of South Bend. I am 60+ miles from the transmitter and it pulls all stations in. Amazing.
Excellent Antenna! Jason - Marietta, GA - 2/3/2014 Rock solid beautiful HD picture quality and absolutely worth the money. I have recommended this Antenna to all my cord cutting friends and family. This was my first purchase from Solid Signal and they have fast shipping!! Thank you Solid Signal!!
I purchased this antenna on sale 79.99 and i am so happy and it does the job. " Love This Antenna " - Lakeland, FL - 2/4/2014 I purchased the flatwave air outdoor amp antenna and "WOW " this antenna does the job and then some. Thank you Solid Signal, you have great service and fast shipping. Steve
The HD picture quality with this antenna for the local channels is better than what we were getting with cable! This is a great looking unit and is barely noticeable on the outside of our home. There are no negatives with this antenna for us! ESG - Clifton Park, NY - 2/15/2014 We were thinking about getting rid of cable due to the increasing bill. I started doing some research online and wound up on Solid Signal's website. I contacted them by phone and this antenna was recommended to us. We could not be happier with the performance and quality of this product!
Goodbye Cable TV. Hello 68 over the air channels! BAH - Long Island, NY - 2/19/2014 I was little bit hesitant about purchasing the Winegard FL6550A because this antenna is somewhat new and didn't have much amazon reviews. Some reviews were actually negative but I thought the negative reviews were somewhat unfair as one reviewer didn't even mount it and another reviewer was 70 miles away from the station. I actually thought how could a little 14" x 14" antenna compete with a huge yagi antenna. Is Winegard sacrificing performance for nice modern style?! Well, I took a chance and picked the Winegard FL6550A over the Winegard HD7694P antenna and Antennas Direct C2-V-CJM ClearStream antenna after considering the flatwave antenna comes with mount, mast, +60 mile range and comes with an amplifier. I am so happy with the performance of this antenna and I am so glad that I got this antenna from amazon purchase (solid signal) as I cut the cable cord.
Setup? On top of 2 story Long Island, NY house, grounded to 8 foot buried ground rod (scrape some paint off the antenna mount), used grounding block and 123 feet of coaxial cables were used as I had to split to 3 televisions. I bought a lot of mediabridge coaxial cables on amazon. The main stations that I really wanted like cbs, nbc, fox, abc, MyTV and CW were 33 miles away at 275 degrees. I recommend to use antennaweb.org to find out where the stations are and even use a compass on the roof to get the most accurate aiming of the antenna.
Performance? After scanning, I was able to get 68 channels. Antennaweb.org said I should receive up to 47 channels so I was really surprised to get 68 channels. You must use the amp that comes with the antenna! If you don't use the amp, you may only get like 70% of the channels. Lot of people assume that the amp just helps in splitting but this amp greatly helps in receiving more channels as well. While a lot of the channels are Spanish and some duplicates, there are still quite a few good HD channels to enjoy even outside the major networks. I'm discovering this recently. For example, WLNY (channel 55) plays CSI: Miami and Modern Family and ION (channel 31) plays Leverage and Law & Order: SVU and Criminal Intent. As for the picture quality? It really looks exactly like Cablevision Optimum. The picture quality is crystal clear HD and rarely ever freezes or pixelate. I had no idea that over the air reception quality could be as good as cable. I even have 3 televisions running on different channels and I don't see any loss of quality.
Style? This is the best looking antenna that I have ever seen. I am more concerned with performance over style but it really looks nice on the roof. The traditional yagi antenna looks pretty bad. This is only 14"x14" and has a nice modern style. I also think it is more durable than a traditional yagi antenna. Also, this flatwave antenna isn't completely flat where I would be concerned about heavy winds hitting it. It is slightly aerodynamic and roundish so heavy winds would be pushed to the sides.
I give this antenna a 10 out of 10. It is a great option to cut the cable cord. Now, I am using my Winegard Flatwave antenna, Roku with Netflix, Hulu Plus, 1 TB Western Digital Portable Hard Drive for my movie collection, PlayOn/PlayLater Lifetime, Plex (free) and bunch of other good channel apps and of course using DVD rentals from Redbox. Saving a ton of money since dropping cable TV! Cablevision Optimum still overcharges me for phone and internet so they can't be too upset. If I run into any problems, I will update this review but so far, so good.
Looks great and works great Charles - Morgan Hill, CA - 3/9/2014 This antenna is excellent. It looks great and it's easy to install. I live in Morgan Hill, CA and I didn't know if it would work. I went to website http://www.tvfool.com/ to check out potential channels that I could received.
I tested the reception before I installed it. Indoor on the first floor, I got 0 channels. I opened the living door and I could get 3 channels. I installed the antenna outside about 17 ft high and I could see 20 channels. Key channels that I could receive in HD are CBS, NBC, ABC, KQED and Univision.
Get it! It works! mslmg - Northwoods, IL - 3/19/2014 Easy installation. Mounted outside. I was skeptical about the performance. I use to get about 12 channels, now I get 54. Highly recommended.
Love this antenna! Tom Fiedler - Valparaiso, IN - 3/27/2014 Could not believe the reviews this was getting. We live 55 miles east of Chicago,and have mounted in our finished attic. It's pointed 314 degrees and it gets 52 channels including 5 from South Bend,In. That's the opposite direction. Channel 11 our PBS station, the one I was shooting for is kinda hit or miss. All in all a great buy.
Small in size Jimmy - Raleigh, NC - 4/2/2014 I think this is OK for tight spaces. Consumers now don't want rod type antennas which are more reliable for distant signals I think it is far overpriced for what you are getting I wouldn't be surprised if it was made in China with a hefty marketing scheme. You could get better for $100.00 price range
Unbelievable Clarity!! ingsting - Mt. Vernon, AL - 4/4/2014 Most of the time when you buy something that is advertised to be great, it doesn't work as well as you'd hoped. This is NOT the case with this antenna! I live in the country approximately 30 miles north of Mobile, Alabama where clear reception is all but impossible unless you have cable or satellite. This antenna has resolved that problem, I just took it out of the box and connected it then pointed it out of my bedroom window. I received 27 channels in an area where 3 locals(VHF) and 1 UHF were previously available. I expect it to perform even better once it is mounted.
The color,contrast, and sharpness on my tv had to be adjusted because the reception caused the colors to be much warmer, brighter,and rich. Even the sound is better, it is truly unbelievable. I'm kicking myself for paying the satellite company around $70/month for the past three years. Get one of these, you will not regret it.
