The market is now full of knock offs but none can come close the Televes antennas that started it all. This antenna is built of heavy gauge durable materials to last for many years and it's preamp provides enough signal to run every tv in the house. The Televes triple boom design produces the maximum gain, beamwidth, and bandwidth possible in an antenna that size. I admit i was a skeptical until i tested one against our reference standard UHF antennas on our far field antenna test range, but it actually delivered better UHF performance than larger industry standard corner reflector yagi designs.
This is the strongest you can get

Antenna arrived quickly. Assembly instructions were 22 steps in photos. I watched the videos ahead of time and they helped. Took about 35 minutes. Overall impressions----sturdy, well made, not too massive. I installed it on top of a 15 ft mast on roof---chimney attachment and guy wires. Ran 50 ft coax inside to included amp/ 2 tv distribute box. I am in a difficult geographic location 45-50 miles from KC MO stations. Looks like all signals from 43 channels are pegged at max. No more pixellations so far. Gonna watch the Olympics clearly and on FREE TV. In a good location this antenna should pick up from 70 miles I would think.
I checked out a lot of reviews prior to finally deciding on the Televes antenna. The one that I selected is UHF only however I would definitely suggest checking your area to see if VHF is required. I'm able to pickup 81 channels in the KC area. I found the Solid Signal tutorial on YouTube for great step by step instructions on assembly.

This antenna was installed 69 miles north of the New Orleans transmitters. I do have some channels drop out for a short time in heavy rain. The elevation of the antenna site is 290' ASL, compared to a transmitter SL of Zero, and a 1000 ft tower. I think I have line of site to the transmitters. The built in amplifier works well. The antenna is well made. I don't think I can find an antenna that will work any better. Excellent Value.
Great antenna for distant towers.
by Bay Ranger
Superior product for bringing in distant stations. Towers are about 70 miles away and with the amplifier I receive about 20 stations. I previously had a cheaper antenna and would only pick up about 7 stations, and that was dependent on atmospheric conditions. If you need an antenna to pick of distant stations don't waste you money an anything other than this antenna. Solid Signal was the least expensive and the shipping was really quick. Great company to deal with.
Very good for UHF stations.

It does a great job on UHF but, it not as strong on VHF, I'm still having issues picking up 2 VHF stations just 15 miles away.
