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.

You need a pole to mount the antenna. The pole should be anywhere from 1 to 2 inches in diameter and the higher the pole the better.

answer 2
You will need a pole, mounting bracketts, screws and nuts to secure to the house. If you have an older TV you will need a converter also, but if you have a newer flat screen TV you are all set. You will probably need a longer cable wire to hook the antenna to your TV though.

We have 2 TV's hooked up and I believe you can put as many as you want, you will just need the cable wire to attach them.

Use a 5 output antenna/cable "splitter." Use the highest loss outputs (-7db) for the sets closest to the antenna, and the lowest loss outputs (-3.5db) for TV's farthest from the antenna. Always see if it works WITHOUT a line amplifier. I'm feeding 4 TV's with mine, and all look great. Farthest set is about 100 feet from the antenna.

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 1 year, 1 month ago
By

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.
