answer 2
The antenna is one directional meaning you have to aim it at the transmitter. It will pull in digital and uhf signals although I don,t know of any tv stations still transmitting uhf. We are 40 miles from the towers and are getting 37 channels with this bad boy.
Hope that helps.

that depends on your TV, not the antenna. If you need a converter box now, you would need one with this antenna also untill you get a new TV with a digital tuner.

If you going to use an analog tv ( the older kind) then yes you do a conveter box to convert the digital signals to analog so your tv can display the channels.

Once assembled I would say the unit weighs about 15 pounds or less, but it is large and not really a one-person job to maneuver to mount.

No it doesn't. I'm not sure of the exact weight, but it's not super heavy. The box the antenna comes in is pretty long, though.

Question

I purchased this antenna and there is no communication between the antenna and TV. Do I need additional equipment?

The location is in a wooded resort however I've been receiving TV reception before and after signal changed. I purchased digital LCD TV's and was recieving some channels. Purchased this antenna in hope that I'd get more channels...however I cannot get the antenna to communicate with the TV. I thought maybe it was the TV but when I purchased a new TV and hooked the cable I got same results. Can you advise what may be wrong as to why I'm not getting any activity between TV and this antenna? Please help.

Did you put in the channel search section on the TV that you are using an antenna? Go to the tv menu and check for this. and make sure the antenna wire is connected to the antenna in on the tv
answered 7 months ago
By
mikeandy
answer 2
Hi Ginny, Your problem is a bit puzzling as there are no working parts to the antenna other then the small included transformer you attach to the antenna. Assuming you assembled the antenna correctly including the phasing lines the problem may be a bad cable or connector. You can check this by running a different cable temporarily to a tv. I have a small 13" flat screen I can take on the roof when trouble shooting for a bad cable. You also need to change the input setting on your tv from hdmi etc.. to antenna.
Hope that helps.

answer 1
Mine works great at about 50 miles , but I amonly 12 feet above my house roof. I think it would if you got it high enough. Also a signal booster will work wonders. I had some years ago that I could barely see without the booster-- they were great with the booster.

We live 40 miles from the towers and get very good reception with this antenna. If you can't get reception with this big boy you won,t get it with anything smaller including those that claim to boost reception electronically. If there are obstructions between your antenna and the towers you are most likely out of luck anyway.

You can theoretically connect as many TV's as you want to it with splitters.
Realistically about 4 is the max before you need a signal amplifier to boost the signal, the more splitters you have the weaker the signal gets.
