Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a digital antenna?
Analog and digital signals are broadcast on VHF and UHF frequencies, so all antennas can pick up digital signals.  Its more a matter of getting an antenna that covers the frequencies that your stations are broadcast on (VHF/UHF).  This is a bit confusing when manufacturers list an antenna as "Digital Ready", or "HD Antenna", but whether they are labeled this way or not, all antennas have this ability. 

How much signal will I lose if I put this in my attic?
You will lose 40-50% of your signal strength when placing an antenna in an attic that is covered by plywood and asphalt shingles.  Even more signal is lost with foil covered insulation, metal roofs and concrete structures.  Beyond a range of 30-35 miles an attic installation is generally not recommended.  Because of the high signal loss of an attic installation, an antenna with twice the range is needed to receive the same amount of signal.  Digital reception has a much higher threshold of signal strength than analog reception.

Do I need a rotator?
It depends on how wide a direction your antenna covers.  This feature is called the beam width.  The average antenna has a beam width of 35 degrees, out of 360.  Go to a site like or and look at the compass orientation.  If the difference in degrees between all your desired stations is great than your antennas beam width, then you will need a rotator.  Keep in mind that larger antennas that have a boom length over 131 inches need a rotator that can withstand the windload and torque we suggest the CM9521.

What is the difference between a directional, multidirectional and omnidirectional antenna?
Directional antennas pick up from a narrow direction usually around 40 degrees wide out of 360 and is best for long range reception.  Multidirectional antennas have a wide beam width usually 60-90 degrees, allowing them to receive stations that are coming from multiple directions. Omnidirectional antennas receive signal from all directions, and have the shortest range.

Outstanding antenna. Picked up 37 channels on first scan including VHF 13 55 mi away!!
- Surfside Beach, SC -
I ordered this UHF antenna by mistake. I wanted UHF/VHF. It picked up every thing I wanted, except PBS chan 9. I ordered a VHF kit to upgrade and receive chan 9. I not only didn't get chan 9 I lost half of my uhf channels. The system could't handle the additional insertion losses of combining the UHF and VHF, being attic mounted, and 30 year old RG59. My solution was to separate the antennae and run uhf downstairs,(everything but PBS) and vhf upstairs, (NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS) plus all associated sub channels... Most transmitters are 55 mi. out. The bottom line...If I had got a VHF/UHF antenna at the start, I would have been very unhappy and would not have thought to split the antennae. As it stands I can view everything that available over the air.
I have both the C2 and the C4.For local TV viewing both are roughly the same.Below I will point out the minute differences.

I find the C4 a little bit more directive than the C2. In some cases the C2 makes it easy to get a weak signal than the C4.I like them and keeping them both.
This little antenna works great !!!!

Installed this little antenna on tripod with u-100 rotor and 10g202 preamp, approx 25` high on roof. Getting Indy stations 70 plus miles away. Including Indy ch 13.1,2,3 hi-vhf! Antenna was very easy to assemble and install. One last thing,Solid Signal`s service,online ordering and shipping is excellent.

I live 90 miles north of Madson, WI. As all of Madison';s stations are UHF I thought I would give this a try. I live in a rural area with lots of trees & high winds. I';ve had this for a little ver a year now and I get all of Madison';s channels plus some of Wausau';s!
Greatproduct. Easy to install

Easy to install. We got about 15 channels including network channels. My neighbor was impressed with it and he bought one also.
This thing really works.

I did some things with this antenna Im told you are not supposed to do. I have 150 feet of coax cable and then spilt to 3 tvs. No amplifiers or boosters were used. I am 35 miles from most of the broadcast towers yet still get more channels than I did before plus almost all of them come in at full strength on my tv signal meter. The antenna is mounted outdoors about 10 feet high overlooking an ope

Great unitHave used for over 4 years. I live 1/2 way between Louisville KY and Indianapolis In. Weak signal from both. I use Direct TV for most my viewing.I use this unit for access tochannel not available on sat.Direct tv gives me Indy but not Louisville. From Louisville I can get.Example 3.1 3.2 3.3 3.4I added a 2nd same antenna same mount directly to the back side of the first. Y conne

I have this product for more than 4 years. It did not even moved from its place. First installation and it is still there. Signal is excellent. This product has been through Harricane Rita and everyday texas heat and torture. Has not broken yet. Actually still looks new. and like I said before signal is excellent and Price is sweet. I recommend it every one. In houston I pick up almost 75 channe

Tried every antenna there was. This is the only one that worked.With the excebtion of the DB8.
Compact Works Well etc.
- Sun City, ty AZ -
The vertical desigh makes it easy to mount my weather station on the same mast at the same level without having the weather station either above or below the antenna.The vertical design does not appeal to birds to use as a perch.They seem to prefer the neighbors horizontal antenna instead. Covers all of the VHF/UHF band currently in use for DTV broadcasts.

I started TV antenna project more than a year ago but was stuck with Ladder.It gives me pretty good reception even just facing window in the room at upstairs but my wife hates to see the huge thing in her cozy office room and I wanted to completely replace all tv connection to timewarner cable to air.The only problem for me was ladder.My two story house is small but tall and I needed a tall
