Recent Review: coldbear - Springboro, OH - 9/17/2015 If it says Winegard, rest assured that you have bought the best money can buy. I have used Winegard antennas on my motorhomes for 40 years and they simply build quality into everyone of their products.
If it says Winegard, rest assured that you have bought the best money can buy. I have used Winegard antennas on my motorhomes for 40 years and they simply build quality into everyone of their products. coldbear - Springboro, OH - 9/17/2015 9:04:30 AM I only buy Winegard antennas for the sake of knowing they'll work perfect every day. With digital TV's, an amplified Omni directional antenna is a must for many.Pay the extra money and buy Winegard antennas.
Fantastic Antenna aduke289 - Ortonville, MI - 4/14/2015 9:36:46 AM So first I installed it inside the house and got 9 crystal clear channels then I got a 10' pole and mounted it outside to the chimney and I get 35 channels from Flint(15 miles) and Detroit(25 miles). I love that it doesn't need to have a rotator and that it is MUCH smaller than the neighbors bulky antennas. My neighbors are now thinking of getting the same antenna I have to get rid of their eyesores! I would recommend this to anyone within the 25-30 mile range of the transmitting tower.
low cost, high performance, long lasting product. cary - cary, NC - 4/4/2015 10:08:32 AM Installed in attic. Easy to install. Has worked very well for 5 years. No issues. I run 6 HD TVs from this single antenna. HD picture is as good or better than the local cable provider.
Easy to install... Med - Greer, SC - 1/7/2015 9:08:40 PM I have tried several antennas with poor reception. This one done the job...pick up all in my area...one 47 miles that I never received before. Installed in my attic. Picture perfect!
Worked great for me. Malpais Ranch - Sagauro, AZ - 10/9/2014 11:23:24 AM I have had very good reception at my remote location between Tucson and Phoenix. I receive both cities for an unbelievable number of channels. I had a directional but got tired of wind gusts breaking elements. I have had this new antenna for 6 months and have had great results with no problems.
Excellent omni-directional reception Bill - Fort Lauderdale, FL - 9/18/2014 6:51:45 PM Tried one of those directional antennas that have a built in rotor. What a joke. This is a great antenna. It pulls in over 65 channels in my area without messing with it! Very clear reception.
Super easy to install. Well made. Picks up over 80 free HDTV signals. Sgt Moe - Deltona, FL - 9/8/2014 6:32:32 AM Hard to beat for the price. Nice appearance. Light and a breeze to install. Will definetly stand up to frequent high wind events in this area.
A good buy !! OR Bruce - Bridgewater, MI - 7/15/2014 5:02:34 PM We got 9 channels with our rabbit ears. Now we get 42. Easy set up and instalation. A good buy !!
A lot of my stations are ~46 miles out [one at 55 miles] but at different angles so my directional antenna had issues. I bought the MS-2002 and it captured all of the signals and a few more with my hanging attic installation. A dern good product...already recommended it to others. The plastic bolt will scare you - a VERY tight fit. After a few HAND tightening to be sure I would not cross thread it, I soaked bolt and antenna threads in silicon lube and it screwed in just fine using a 1-1/4 socket. Dick DYI - Berthoud, CO - 1/11/2014 7:33:34 PM The plastic bolt scared me - I was visualizing a broken bolt BUT with silicon lube all was good. Only other challenge is tightening the coax nut into the antenna, the counter sunk design requires a long, thin needle nose pliers and patience getting it started when working in the dark by head lamp. Again, was impressed by range of reception from an attic. Now I am wondering if I should buy another, manufacture a custom sheet metal attachment for my motor home TV antenna [which is a Winegard batwing].
this is what you need for nashville tn. jason - hermitage, TN - 8/7/2013 12:49:13 PM I';m in 37076 area with this antenna mounted upside down in my attic about 30 feet from the ground near the vent slats. I get every channel the fcc says I should. Use http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=SKY6017 and some fence post to mount the antenna easily in an inverted installation. I';m super happy with the products and solidsignal customer support and recommendations.
Great antenna for multiple TV sets. Chris - Norfolk, VA - 7/28/2013 10:51:23 AM If you have multiple TV';s and Multiple stations all around you it would be impossible to turn a directional antenna so everyone can watch TV at the same time. I did have to turn the antenna just a little bit when I first put it up to get all the channels to come in clear. I am installing a Channel Master CM3418 8-Port Distribution Amplifier this week since the splitters are degrading the signal to where I have pixelation on some of the channels. TV clearer than cable and FREE.
Worth every nickle paid Stirp the Realt - Fort Myers Fl, Fort Myers Fl - 3/28/2013 Used my old satellite post to mount worked great.took 30 min. to install because I used a existing satellite cable that hooked into antenna perfect.Used a 8-way splitter for the other six TVs.Got 15 channels which is very good were we live 45 miles from towers and all channels are crystal clear like satellite or cable. VERY HAPPY
great reception!! dennis - birmingham, ingham al - 3/28/2013 Very clear HD reception.Better thanthe dish.
Good product. jbird - West Palm Beach, West Palm Beach - 3/28/2013 I love your antenna. However the attachment threads in the bottom are not built correctly. Nothing threads into them including you provided piece. I ended up gluing mine up.
Winegard Antenna Jim - Hendersonville, Hendersonville - 3/28/2013 We picked up an extra 12 channels when we installed the Winegard antenna.I wish we had done this sooner!
Good antenna Warren - Willowbrook, lowbrook IL - 3/28/2013 Chicago suburban area use. I am picking up about 32 channels and many of these are HD. I cancelled my Comcast Cable because they were charging me $22 for basicaly the same channels I am getting off of my antenna. I was able to install it easily in my attic to a crossbeam with the bracket included in the package. Getting great reception.
Great Antenna casio grandma - Denver, CO - 3/28/2013 I was tired of paying what cable tv wanted and decided to go to an antenna. [...] I now can get HD free which is great. The picture I receive is better than when I had cable even the person that I had install it for me was impressed with the picture quality.Great product. Now several people that live close to me are thinking about getting the same antenna.
Good Product at a Good Price MD Electrical S - Richmond, nd VA - 3/28/2013 Good product easy to install.
Works just fine Wa;lt - Texas, Texas - 3/28/2013 the unit did the job as described
Very satisfied with this product. Don - Temple, TX - 3/28/2013 Purchased this item for my use.Installed in attic.Within a 58 mile radius can receive 30 stations.20 very clear and 10 so-so.Highly recommend this product.
great value & great performance RpdRider - Oakland, mi. - 11/21/2012 Lightweight and easy to install. Great value cost less than one month of cable. Pulls in stations that I didnt know existed.
Good for indoors! NICKELHEAD - CHERRY HILL, RRY HILL NE - 1/31/2012 After buying 5 antennas from Solid Singnal this one was the right onemost of the antennas I were uhf not knowing that WPVI6 and whyy 12 broadcasted in VHF!in Phila. New Jersey BUY THIS ANTENNA!!! GOOD FOR INDOORS AAA!
Get off the fence line buy this today Floating on air - DFW area GO Gre, DFW area GO Gre - 3/3/2011 Great for indoor use.20-50 mile use in attic no problem pulls in channels i dont use GOOD BYE Uverse YIPEE
perfect ant.even indoors sibby - preston n.y., preston n.y. - 1/5/2011 i tested it inside and it worked perfect so i left it inside now i have a u.f.o. on my intertainment center
Easy setup, great results! Beef LoMein - Albany, NY - 5/24/2013 4:02:46 PM I';ve had my MS2002 up for about a month now, and all I can say is that I';m sorry I waited so long. A previous owner had left a Dish Networks dish and mast connected to the garage roof. I disconnected and removed the dish, connected and mounted the MS2002 and BINGO--great, clear reception. No aiming, no signal strength meters, no fooling. Shipping was faster than I expected, too. All in all, this was a great experience--thank you, Solid Signal!
Value Look and Reliability = great buy! Jim the Cost-Cu - Kalamazoo, azoo MI - 3/28/2013 This is everything promised and more. It was recommended I get the largest antenna available to get the local stations where I live. I got this one for the look and it picks up all my local stations. I do occassionally lose signal for a moment but part of the compromise for the look.I will also utilize a different station for the same network (e.g. channel 22 instead of 3 for CBS) to help
Works very well. RussM - Missoula, la MT - 3/28/2013 Put it up outside on a 12 pole.Receives all local digital plus one analog channel very well.Signal is strong enough to split at least 3 times.Occasional minor loss of signal but I think it is due to mounting height rather than an antenna problem.Would definately buy another.Transmitter distance is in the 10 - 15 mile range.
Good Antenna worth buying Valmore - Massachusetts, Massachusetts - 3/28/2013 No hassle setup no aiming or adjusting
So far so good. Gemiller - Milton, FL - 3/12/2012 Ok so we finally got fed up with the ridiculous price of cable tv. I had researched all types of antennas on the internet. I finally found one that I thought that my HOA wouldnt mind. Finally received the item and hooked it up. The houses in my neighborhood sit in a bowl-like depression. The nearest ABC CBSNBC FOX towers are over 30-40 miles away. I put it on a j type satellite mount and got
Good reception for 12 Chanels Triride44 - South Point, OH - 5/27/2014 9:36:05 AM Installed outside on roof of Mother';s house in Huntington WV. To replace old weather damaged RS antenna. Receive 12 local stations. Ch 3-1 WSAZ-NBC Ch 3-2 MyZ Ch 8-1 WCHS-ABC Ch 11-1 WVAH-FOX Ch 11-2 Ch 13-1 WOWK-CBS Ch 13-2 Radar Weather Ch 14-1 Shopping Ch 30-1 Ch 33-1 PBS Ch 33-2 Ch 61-1 WTSF
Unable to get Chanel 29 (Ion) Poka WV Old RS antenna did receive all Ch 29-1-2-3-3-5-6.
I have the Channel Master 8-bay Bow Tie antenna (CM 2448)replaced by (CM 2448HD) and get 20 local channels.
Not a great of a product[...] Chuck - St. Paul, ul MN - 3/28/2013 I was looking to replace separate VHF and HDTV-UHF antennas with a single unit.I am in an excellant reception area less than 5 miles from the transmitters however the signal received with the MetroStar was of less strength and quality than my existing configuration.
Gets one channel at Newport OR Wallsent - Nye Beach Orego, Nye Beach Orego - 3/28/2013 Gets one channel at Newport OR which is one more than i got before so i guess its better than nothing..
Poor high VHF reception Lefty - Indianapolis, dianapolis I - 10/28/2011 Mounted on mast on roof. Easy to install. Picks up UHF signals good. Picks up high VHF signals sometimes but most of the time very sporadic. High VHF towers only 15 miles away.
Picked up the one VHF channel well but all UHF channels were scrambled. Andrew - Washington Township, MI - 10/4/2015 11:21:55 AM I think the pre-amp was over driving the UHF channels. I am also not sure this is the best option for outside use in MIchigan as snow buildup on top of the antenna could potentially play a factor in signal reception. Found another antenna that could be placed indoors and for half the price that brought in all channels that we are interested in watching.
Wanted It To Work So Bad jaredl - Byram, MS - 5/10/2013 6:35:07 PM Didn';t work, $30 antenna worked much better for short range (15-30 miles). I liked the design and look of this antenna and the fact that it easily attaches to a mast. When I got it in I first set it up in the attic the same way I had my other flat panel. I only got about 6-9 channels where I usually get about 15. I thought maybe it';s because I didn';t use a mast so I made one out of an old fiberglass shovel handle that had broken (also attic install). I was really hoping it would work now as it was so clever of me if I do say so myself. That was actually even worse so I decided to try it outside on my former dish mast. It fit on that perfectly and now I';m really excited because not only have I stuck it dish by cancelling them, but now I';m using their old but very nice equipment. Well that was exactly the same as the attic. As you can tell I';m very disappointed and I would love to send it back, but the shipping is too high. The customer service is very good though and I would recommend using solid signal, just not this antenna (at least for short range, it may work better for longer distances).
Not as good as I thought Jimmy Crack Cor - Denver, CO - 3/28/2013 I was advised by a professional the Winegard MS2002 would bring in all local channels in the Denver Co area.Unfortunately I DO NOT get the local NBC affiliate!It works OK but Im a little dissapointed.
Doesn';t work for me megotone - jacksonville, FL - 9/30/2014 9:52:34 PM I find this omnidirectional antenna not very workable in my situation. I replaced a directional antenna without amp with this omnidirectional with amp and was very dissatisfied with the results.
No Thanks tealjag - jacksonville, FL - 6/30/2014 11:55:13 AM I had no luck with this antenna. My cheap ($20) unamplified v-shape is a much better antenna.
Buyer Beware Big D - Spirit Lake, ID - 4/20/2013 8:21:58 PM This is NOT a 360% antenna it will pick up some of your channels but only when you turn it and pin-point it right at your TV towers. I got my best reception when the disk was upside down on my patio table which I can';t leave there obviously. If they would let me refund it I would do it in a heart beet. P.S. The Site & Service I would say is still a 4 to 5 star service just not the antenna.
