Great for tailgate

Customer Reviews:
Great for tailgate
- Fayetteville, yetteville A -
Use for tailgating in a very building obstructed area.Great protection against multipath distortion.Have an old sprinkler tripod and I slide a chain-link fence pole over..gets about 15 ft in the air...beautiful reception of 20+ channels and I watch Dish/Direct folks struggle with their sat dishes. Cheers!
No RED parts (I got BLACK parts instead)
- California, California -
I was happy to see that they replace the RED color parts in Solid Signals photo with BLACK color parts now(at least on the one I got).Was a bit worry about how ugly it will look with the bright RED parts.It replace my RCA ANT751 in hope to pick up a UHF channel 45 miles away from my roof (mounted ~40 high).Works like a charm!
Simple light weight UHF antenna
- Denison, TX -
Surprising performance from such a small antenna.Very easy to mount especially if it needs to be on a building wall or side of tower.Will pick up some top band hi VHF so may not be the best choice if you are using a two antenna system with one VHF and one UHF combined.
Good for the attic
- Austin, TX -
Good antenna for cramped attics.I am using to pick up a station 48 miles away from inside the attic.The forward elements clip on to the beam with plastic mounts.Plastic in the construction is a little questionable in terms of durability in the elements (sunlight) though it appears to be UV stabilized.It is however a very short antenna for the gain though more bulky than the SR15.
