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.

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.

answer 2
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.

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

The stated shipping weight is 1.55 pounds; how is this possible?

Does this antenna have to be positioned accurately. Can it be returned if it doesn't work as I expect it to?

Does it include attachment hardware?

The shipping weight is a misprint. It weighs closer to 7 lbs. Yes the antenna needs to be aimed at the transmitters. Best way to do that is to use one of the digital converter boxes that the government gave coupons for when the switch was made to digital. Someone you know probably has one or try ebay. The box has a signal strength meter that shows up on your tv screen. Simply rotate the antenna to the best position. I do not work for Wallmart but they have liberal return policy.

No it does not come with any attachment hardware you need to buy it separately along with a pole.

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.
