Recent Review: BobNaz - Salem, NH - 5/24/2015 This a follow up to my previous review(March 2015) on after moving the Antennas out side mounted at the corner of the house.
This a follow up to my previous review(March 2015) on after moving the Antennas out side mounted at the corner of the house. BobNaz - Salem, NH - 5/24/2015 8:03:36 PM I removed the antennas from the attic and mounted outdoor today. I checked the performance of FL6550A and RCA751 separately Both units performed exceptionally well. FL6550 A installation was easier. I am getting full strength in signals for most channels(using the TV signal analyses test that most Digital TVs have. The reception is about 3Db stronger compared to previous Attic installation. I will recommend to this Antenna for short and medium range TV transmission stations.( mine is under 40 miles.
Compact world class Antenna, self contained with essential Low noise Pre-Amp,very Easy to installwith only two bolts/screws. Deliver high clarity pictures, surpassing many competitive products in its class. Very delighted with its outstanding performance. BobNaz - Salem, NH - 3/29/2015 10:35:29 AM Using The TV FOOL software and FCC ( http://transition.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/dtvmaps/) I reviewed the signal analyses plots, and data of various TV stations ( in Boston and Manchester NH). I noticed most of the stations are within 40 miles range but in diagonally opposite directions. It suggested that I should be able to receive at least 30 to 40 stations with properly selected Antenna installation.
Recent reviews by Antenna experts of many antennas suggested that Winegard FL6550A ( 13 X 13 ) with built in very Low Noise amplifier similar to ( winegard LNA-200 design) and AUDIOVAX RCA ANT751R (it needs an external preamp) have excellent performance ratings.
My existing setup by Antenna Direct 91XG with AP8275 pre-amp, had problem receiving Channels 4, 7 and 9( moderate VHF channels). I attribute it to 91XG primarily tailored for UHF channels and old design vintage. It’s performance is less than satisfactory for me. It was, mounted outdoor very high, facing the TV transmitters.
Bottom line, I bought both ANT 751R( plus LNA-200) and Winegard FL6550A ( with built in ANA) from Solid Signal, so that I can install them in the Attic. I checked out each one of them separately within the house, in the direction of Boston and Manchester . I was surprised that I was able to get all the suggested 50 plus TV channels, per TV fool and FCC.Gov tools, as an indoor installation.
I could have settled for any one of the two antennas. However, I installed both antennas in the Attic facing two different directions, combined the signals that feeds 4 different rooms about 125 to 150 feet plus splitter losses. This also provides an additional 3 dB gain for in-phase stations that are captured by both antennas.
1. The quality of the pictures and colors are exceptional ( I attribute to LNA low noise amps) and the strong signal capture. 2. I receive 54 channels with strong signals with crystal clarity and sharpness. 3. The Antenna design concepts have advanced a lot compared to older versions with big elements and directors.
4. My experiments showed, under identical installation conditions, both Winegard FL6550A and RCA ANT751R outperformed 91Xg multi-element Yagi Antenna, under indoor, porch, attic or outdoor installation conditions for my location. ( I tried them in all these locations). Winegard Fl6550A is a bit better in all locations than RCA ANT 751R.
5. The installation of the smaller, light weight Antennas are very easy and uncomplicated for anyone .
Both Solid Signal and Winegard Customer, Technical support and shipment staff were outstanding.
On a warm spring day, I plan to move the antennas from Attic to outdoors to get additional signal capture and range.
The Winegard FL6550A was a good purchase. Works great. And Solid Signal was very helpful. Bill the installer - Fort Valley, GA - 3/24/2015 7:54:04 PM I purchased the Winegard FL6550A 3/3/15 from SolidSignal.com. They ship fast, & have good Tech Support people that can answer your questions before & after the sale. When I received it, I spent 3 days trying to get it set up, and I could not get any UHF signal at all, no matter where or how high I put it. I finally gave up & called Solid Signal Tech Support, I explained everything to the gent that I spoke with, & he said that it sounded like a problem with the antenna itself, he had me call Winegard Tech Support for a second opinion. I spoke to James Chase at Winegard, (very helpful)& he agreed that it was the UHF side of the antenna that could have had a solder point that came loose or something. He then said that he could send me another one to replace the defective one, & did, with a return label to return the defective antenna. I received it this past Friday. I installed it, & was up and going in no time. With the original antenna I was thinking I was doing something wrong. I guess I am kind of stubborn sometimes,& will not give up. I should have known that something was wrong the first day, because the FL6550A is very simple to install, & aim with AntennaWeb.org calculations. (There could be 1000 of anything on a warehouse shelf, & if there is a bad one, I will get it).This Winegard Fl6550A antenna works very good in this area. I am getting 16 channels,(feeding 3 TV'S) (2)VHF-H & all of the UHF signals for this area, all of the major stations. I did not much care about reaching way out for other stations that are all duplicates anyway. I would like to say that I have been a Service Tech for over 40 Years in electronic & electromechanical equipment, and I cannot say enough, how pleased I am with Solid Signal & Winegard Tech Support & Customer Service. They are the best, & they don't run you around in circles until the return policy time runs out. That is hard to find these days.
Great buy and very satisfied with results tmcfo - munster, IN - 3/23/2015 4:38:55 PM Bought this antenna about 2 months ago after reading positive reviews. It was installed temporarily on wall halfway to soffit facing north toward chicago. Getting 51 channels and all channels come crystal clear better than cable.I can hardly wait to install it permanently higher up just below soffit and see what other channels I will get. Installation is very simple .Just remove cable wire and plug in winegard cable along with booster. I was so happy with results that I immediately cancelled cable service for which I was payng over $80 a month. No more cable bill!!!
Excellent! Donna - Morgan Hill, DC - 2/21/2015 10:33:32 AM I live in a Senior building. Cable rates too high to afford. Since getting this antenna I now get 87 channels for free. I mounted it on a 4' pipe and put into an umbrella stand. Works perfect. Many other residents are going to purchase this antenna. I am very pleased.
WORKS GREAT!!! 103 CHANNELS!!! Ltngdrvr - Houston, TX - 11/23/2014 2:50:22 PM I have been exclusively using the OTA TV signals for over 10 years.
I was a bit skeptical when I first looked at this antenna, I had tried a couple of different flat antennas before and neither was worth anything in my location.
I have been using an ancient, huge, old style antenna and it worked but not well and I had lots of clearance issues getting it up very high on my heavily wooded lot, plus, it was falling apart, I tried to patch it back together but finally gave up.
On a google search I came across this antenna so I looked into it. I read all the reviews I could find on this Winegard 6550A and almost all were positive, and of the few negative ones, I could tell that most of those were due to other issues, so I took the plunge and ordered. I';m glad I did, this is the best working DTV antenna I have ever used. I have it mounted to the side of my house using a 20 foot tall pole and after scanning it picked up 103 channels. And some of those are from stations well over 70 miles away and some not in the direction the antenna is even pointed! Now, I will say that those fringe area and off angle channels are fairly weak on signal strength, but I';m sure that if they were channels I wanted I could adjust the aim and pull them in better. But for the channels I was most interested in pulling in this thing works great, pulls a strong signal on all of them. I actually live a ways northeast of Houston and the TV towers are on the southwest side of town, about 56 miles from my house, so even though all the big buildings and trees are between my house and the towers I am still able to pull in a great signal. I am very happy with this antenna so far, hope it lasts me a long time!
Nice little antenna Steve - Northborough, MA - 11/5/2014 1:10:45 PM I can certainly recommend this antenna. It works great. I replaced my Channel Master 3018 radial antenna because it was too directional for my ';wants';. The FlatWave Outdoor Amplified antenna reportedly has an 80+ degree beamwidth, which is great for me to get the Boston and Providence transmissions. I have it on a mast about 25 feet up. Nice little antenna. I';m very happy with it.
Outstanding reception Oldanalyst - Claypool, IN - 11/1/2014 4:59:26 PM ...This antenna replaced two directional antennas and provides signals which are nearly as good. Roughly, if you join South Bend, our house and Fort Wayne, you would have a right angle triangle with the distance to Ft. Wayne about 40 miles and to South Bend about 50 miles. Both markets have a number of UHF stations. Up until recently, in order to receive these, I had to use 2 antennas. The one set of stations are about 90 degrees from the other set which makes signals from one market weak on a directional antenna designed for the other market. One of the antennas needed replacement and strong winds had bent the pole that supported the antennas. I was skeptical that there was a single antenna that would pick up all the stations. ...Yet, when I connected the Winegard antenna, I was able to pick up 40 signals. You must use the included amplifier to get these results. I had to play a bit with the aiming of the antenna but if I located the antenna about 15 deg closer to the Ft. Wayne direction than to the South Bend direction, I received quite adequate reception of these 40 channels. Two low power, high number independent channels from So. Bend are not received but this is no consequence to me. As a trial, I directed the antenna alternately to So. Bend and Ft. Wayne. Then, all channels in the given market were received with very good signal strength. However, even the stronger channels from the other market then had weak signal strengths. (For information, 9 of the channels are independent channels with mainly religious programming.) ...The single, relatively small antenna should not cause problems with the wind and it certainly is much easier to install that 80" directional antennas. If all your stations come from one market, this antenna should be ideal.
GREAT!!! Antenna, highly recommend it. Rich - Cocoa, FL - 10/27/2014 2:17:58 PM Purchased this for my home in Cocoa, FL. beginning of Oct. as tired of paying Brighthouse Basic cable at $30.00 a month. So this $70.00 antenna when hooked up inside my house pointed out my front window, as faces Orlando where most the stations are, I got 56 channels including ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX. Picture is the best I have ever had, my family thought I had gotten a new 3D TV. So mounted it on front wall of home just outside from where I had temporarily positioned for test. I would highly recommend this antenna if you are within 50-60 miles from stations you are wanting. Rate this antenna BIG 10 !!!
Easy to install, performs phenomenally. HalfNorsk - Lester Prairie, MN - 10/1/2014 9:33:35 PM Mounted this on my parents'; townhouse, just down the street from my house. We are almost 50 miles from most Twin Cities towers. The FlatWave sits lower than my huge 14'; Winegard HD 8200U, but it pulls more stations that look fantastic on their old 28" CRT TV.
Installation was a breeze. I removed the dish that was already on the roof, and bolted the base of the FlatWave mast to the old dish mast. Attached the coax cable, aimed the unit with a compass, and I was done.
Absolutely wonderful antenna. Easy installation via clear concise directions. Superb results. Pork-a-cheeze - marble falls, TX - 9/7/2014 4:49:17 PM Previously purchased another antenna that gave very marginal performance. Called Solid Signal, talked to Tech Rep Clifford who listened while I talked , then I listened while he talked. He convincingly stated that the directional Winegard FL6550A would solve my problems. It did, results are absolutely impressive,reception is flawless at 43 miles from towers. Also received a very prompt email response from a Solid Signal Tech Rep that was very profound and analytical, supportive of Clifford';s thoughts. Very impressed with Solid Signal, they have customer satisfaction in mind.
Worth the money Blueskys4ever - Joint Base Lewis McChord, WA - 9/3/2014 5:09:07 PM Item was delivered FEX Ground safely. Simple to install. The Winegard outdoor flatwave antenna replaced the oem antenna on my travel trailer. I increased local channels from 1 to 16. Most of the towers are 40 miles to the North. No other changes made. The wife is happy.
great product, paid for one time no payment every month paul - lancaster, PA - 8/26/2014 9:45:58 AM i love this product i have two one for each set i get 13 chanels i live in a apartment we are sorounded by trees
I hooked it up in the attic and placed the amplifier close to the unit. I am now receiving the TV signals over 100'; from the antenna with great reception. I haven';t split the signal yet to my other TV';s but hopefully the signal will be strong for each TV set. The TV stations I am accessing are 50-65 miles away from my house. Homeowner - Evans, CO - 8/22/2014 12:01:54 AM The antenna definitely works better with the supplied amplifier.
OTA Orlando burbs. Ecstatic with the Winegard Flatwave Air FL6650a !!! LivinLarge - Altamonte Springs, FL - 8/18/2014 11:27:38 PM I live apx 10 miles north of Orlando';s city center. Decided to cut the cable and go OTA plus a Roku. The Big 3 Networks and others have towers near Bithlo. Apx 18 miles east of me. Considered several other small to medium directionals and knowing I would have to add an amplifier to power multiple TV';s via splitters decided to go with the all-in one bundle of the FL6650a from Solid Signal. 3 days later it was on the roof!Antenna install is a snap, most everything you need is in the box. (Except lag bolts to mount J-Post onto roof).Just hook up your cable wire (I just used the existing cable TV wiring) and go! Initially my TV farthest from the antenna was not getting as many channels, particularly missing was NBC which is on VHF here. After some trial and error on where to locate the inline amplifier/power supply found that it worked best when installed at the farthest TV. I started out trying it at closest connection to antenna thinking it would PUSH the signal better. Turns out it worked best the opposite way, installed at farthest point. Get a total of 64 channels including NBC - Wesh 2.1 (and 2.3) which is often everyone';s nemesis for OTA around here. Very happy with this antenna!!! For the campers in the crowd Winegard makes an RV version to replace your batwing antenna. The "Rayzar Air" Also very simple install and works great! I bought that from Solid Signal also.
Unbelievable Clarity!! ingsting - Mt. Vernon, AL - 4/4/2014 5:28:05 PM 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.
Love this antenna! Tom Fiedler - Valparaiso, IN - 3/27/2014 8:02:34 PM 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.
Get it! It works! mslmg - Northwoods, IL - 3/19/2014 12:18:19 PM Easy installation. Mounted outside. I was skeptical about the performance. I use to get about 12 channels, now I get 54. Highly recommended.
Looks great and works great Charles - Morgan Hill, CA - 3/9/2014 8:02:48 PM 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.
Goodbye Cable TV. Hello 68 over the air channels! BAH - Long Island, NY - 2/19/2014 6:38:58 PM 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.
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 5:50:57 AM 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!
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 9:38:41 AM 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
Excellent Antenna! Jason - Marietta, GA - 2/3/2014 4:01:21 PM 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!!
Excellent antenna!!! Matt - Crown Point, IN - 1/28/2014 9:48:42 PM 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.
Nice compact antenna and amplifier. Andrew - Clinton, IA - 12/30/2013 3:57:43 PM 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.
The Flatwave Air FL6550A well worth it!!! Juni - Round Lake, IL - 11/10/2013 4:42:50 PM 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.
WOW!! Biomedguy-R - Fort Gibson, OK - 9/16/2013 9:28:59 PM 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.
Great antenna. No more cable - Morris, IL - 12/27/2013 5:49:05 PM 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.
Good UHF Signal Reception RetiredGI - Honea Path, SC - 10/18/2013 9:52:44 AM 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.
Small in size Jimmy - Raleigh, NC - 4/2/2014 11:06:33 AM 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
compact better look - raleigh, NC - 11/6/2013 9:13:39 AM 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
Not 60+ capable posted in Amazon Ed - Rocky Point, NC - 1/11/2015 6:30:51 AM Bought the Winegard FL6550A FlatWave Air Outdoor HDTV Antenna from Solid Signal for six dollars less. Installed it on the roof and pointed it directly at the magnetic azimuths stated in tvfooldotcom for several towers within 57 miles of my location. (Be aware that antennaweb uses true north azimuths and this could make a significant difference.) I live on the northern outskirts of Wilmington, NC, and the terrain is flat, and no tall buildings around. Powered up the inline amplifier. All I could get were the local channels all within 26 miles of my location. Nothing beyond that, and this is supposed to be a 60+ miles capable antenna. It did not outperform my ancient garage sale rabbit ears! Moreover, I noticed that something was loose inside the plastic case, and the case itself is flimsy. So I gave it a one star rating on the site where I bought it. They have thus far refused to publish it - no response at all. I notice that for the nearly 70 ratings on that site for this product, there are NO one or two star ratings! Amazon has 35 such ratings out of 230, or 15+. Amazing! Tells me a lot. I will never deal with this vendor again. Wasn't worth saving a few bucks.
Only picks up stations within 26 miles cannot pick up stations at 57 miles. Ed - Rocky Point, NC - 1/8/2015 6:55:32 PM I mounted this antenna on my roof, clearing all structure, and pointed it at 40 degrees to pick up 3 stations at 57 miles and had hoped to pick up one at 72 miles. I had it correctly installed with the amplifier connected and powered. It was leveled and correctly pointed. Could only get stations under 30 miles, but could get them with indoor rabbit ears!! Something inside the plastic container is loose as I can hear it rattle around when I rotate the antenna. I will make one more attempt to get it to work tomorrow, and if I can't, I will ask for an RMA to return this thing for a refund.
I look at all the 5 star ratings on this site with a jaundiced eye, as they are way above the review profiles on Amazon, which shows 34 one and 2 star ratings, and NONE on this site! Really?!?
