8200 good, but 7698 is better!!!!

by

This 8200 is great for long distances, BUT too WIDE and BULKY while installing on a guyed tower. BEST to get the 7698P, which has narrow VHF elements and is pulled up EASILY to the top. IMPORTANT-- the 7698P WILL RECEIVE Ch.2-6 if they are in you're area!!!! The description by vendors IS DECEIVING. They trick you into thinking only 7- on up is the rule. NOT if 2-6 are broadcasting on your area!!! PLUS-- the Televes560383 AMP is the BEST!!! My Winegard AP8275 could not give me more than 50% signal strength on TV!! EVEN local stations!! But this TELEVES goes to the MAX on signal strength bars!!! AND pulls in any DEEPEST FRINGE ones, although temporarily, that Winegard could not!!!!

An Absolutely Excellent TV Antenna

Ok this is no 2 review I also use this for fm and am radio on am this picks up the high bands 850 Nashville 870 New Orleans it picks up distance real good am now FM FM HD it really picks up very very good now my zip 32444i getHD as far away as thomasville Ga Tallahassee my last antenna was a channel master 3671 it’s a big antenna but radio reception wasn’t very good . The 8200 HD will also pick up 4K if your local Broadcaster is putting out 4K . This is an excellent antenna for cutting the cord I love the module it’s very easy to assemble very very sharp pictures you’ll think your Blu Ray player is in the picture quality is that good .

I replaced a 3671

I purchased the 8200 hd this antenna as advertised picked up fm HD and it does very good it replaced a channel master 3671 my 3671 was a kinda ok fm but not like the 8200 HD now this antenna also runs 5 tv s the cartridge antenna is absolutely perfect it comes in 5 pieces very easy to put together and install very very good performance. Solid Signal always comes out with great deals good equipment.

It's a beast!

I love that this Antenna is made in the USA. It was easy to assemble, and once installed, with no pre-amp, I'm picking up 78 channels 36 miles away from Detroit! Also, including channels from Canada, and Toledo! Amazing! I would definitely recommend this Antenna, it's built like a tank, so I'm not worried about it falling apart for decades. Hope this helps.

Works beyond expectation.

Our antenna is on a tower, 30ft in the air. Winegard LNA-200 pre-amp and channel master rotator. Pulls in stations from Cleveland, Steubenville, and Wheeling. Installed correctly as instructed, it WILL perform.

It's been 5 years now. This is the best bang for the buck. I'd do this all over again with some minor adjustments.

OTA signal is generated about 65 miles from me. There are 20 transmitters transmitting about 65 channels. I tried several antennas that were supposed to be long range, but could never quite get all of the channels. I saw this antenna and did my research and decided this was the best it was going to get. I purchased everything through this site and it cost a little over 200.00. I added the Pre Amplifier (AP-8700) because I was going to wire this to 4 televisions. My signal is strong. I love seeing the blades of grass on the football fields, so the HD is definitely HD. So I did everything right, so I thought. I also bought 5 of the 5 Ft. Swedged Antenna Mast (TB-0005). I checked it out when it got here and I thought okay, this looks pretty sturdy, so I buried the first one 4 feet into the ground and poured a couple bags of concrete around it. I'm thinking ok, this can survive a hurricane. Wrong. Hurricane Irma came along and a small branch 10ft long and about as big around as a nickle hit the mast propelled by 100 mph winds. It hit just under the antenna, and it bent the mast in half. So, after we got dug out and things calmed down, I went to Home Depot and picked up thick walled electrical conduit. 2 10 foot sections of 1 1/4 inch and connectors. I bought a pvc cap that will fit on top to keep the water out and siliconed that on. I cut the existing antenna pole about 5 feet off the ground and slid the new pole over the old one. I drilled a hole through all of the pipes and ran a bolt through so it won't spin. I love this antenna, and love being off the grid.

Good first impressions

Installed this yesterday to replace an aging, damaged (weather, falling branches, etc.) and very similar Channel Master model w/ the same specs which is no longer available. Using the same mast, rotor, preamp, cable, etc. and getting very good reception so far while the HD8200U is not currently in as favorable a position as the Channel Master was. Construction is not as heavy as the CM antenna and we'll see how it holds up. My first impression is that our reception is now a bit better than it was previously and when you live out in the sticks a little bit better can mean the difference between viewing something you want to watch, resorting to a program that you really don't like so much - or just turning the TV off. Cheers

No problem in putting it together

by

I have this antenna now over 2 two years. I installed on a 25ft boom with a HD Ham station rotor which I already had. Right off the bat I got 45 channels and it was only pointing North got another 30 when I turned it around to fine tune. Come to find out I really didn't need the rotor. Pointing it north get everything I need .No fade out one strong antenna. This this is 17ft. long.

Simply the best combo antenna

by

The hd8200u is the king of extreme fringe reception when you need RF channels 2 thru 51 in one antenna Despite what some want you to believe, gain takes boom length and this one is one of the longest ever made
