Excellent in attic antenna

Customer Reviews:
Excellent in attic antenna
- Redmond, WA -
I am about 13 miles from the TV stations and on the back side of a hill. My antennas are in the attic. So I really needed a good antenna. The main channels I am trying to receive are 4, 5, 7 and 9. 4, 5 and 7 are UHF and 9 is VHF. I have a DB4e for UHF and a Clear Stream 5 (CS5) for VHF. The CS5 came with a combiner to combine the two antennas together. Both the DB4e and the CS5 recieve well and fit well in the attic. Each antenna is mounted on a T hung from the rafters with a swivel joint, so I can turn the antenna and aim it at the transmitter. On bad days, I can';t watch channel 7, but the problem is the signal not the antenna. It seems to have more to do with wind than with rain. I tried adding a PA18 amplifier, but it made no improvement.

No Huge Yagi
- Livermore, more CA -
I wanted to get away from a huge Yagi Chan 2-84 antenna (huge wind load and hard to turn.) I am using the AD C5 with an AD C4 UHF into a combiner and then into AD CPA-19 pre-amp. The combination works very well.Distance to the transmitting antennas are between 40-50 miles and the local multi-path is pretty bad so depending on time of day the reception can become spotty on the weaker signals.I
very good antenna
- sacramento ca., sacramento ca. -
have owned this antenna for several months now and am pleased with it. i have it combined with a 91xg uhf antenna along with a cpa19 pre amp and a centronics rotor. one channel (7) is 100 miles away and comes in with absolute regularity. i also use an atenuator (1296f) to dial down the signal if needed or up for that matter. i find this increases signal strength by as much as 10-15% im using 100
Works well

Ive set this up in my attic and am pickup signals from +90 miles away without preamps or filters. I just want to pick up the networks for a couple games and local news. Some signals come and go with conditions but overall Im pleased.
Solid performance
- Santa Barbara, anta Barbara -
Ive installed this antenna in my attic and am pleased. It was very easy to assemble and install and pulls a solid signal but the signal is a little weaker at the top of the spectrum (Ch. 11-13). I like it for its simple setup and installation combined with a nice compact size/shape. I find I dont fiddle with it.
Low Db Gain
- Colonial Beach, VA -
Says 15 db gain when actually is 7.6 db vhf 4.9 db uhf. Connector broke circuit board for Impedance match, solder connections, now works, but no 15 db gain as claimed.
Medium range antenna
- Denison, TX -
This antenna is great for places where you cannot place a large direction antenna.However it does not replace the recpetion ability of large directional antennas.If you have clear paths to distant transmitters then you can expect 100+ miles.But it will not perform well if there are too many obstacles.
