Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman No more blood-sucking cable service
the antenna was very simple to unfold and mounted on my old TV tower very easily. I live 60 miles from the nearest TV stations and get 12 channels now in clear digital service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ronnyjoe Over-the-air antenna
I dropped satellite TV when the price went up on hundreds of channels I never watched. For months I have only had Internet TV. However, I decided to see if I could pick up local free over-the-air stations though they are almost 100 miles away. The antenna works. Sometimes stations work well and sometimes they don't, but I am adding an amplifier and am confident this will provide me with free access to the basic live network broadcasts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mar AMAZING reception!
Shipping was as estimated; right on time! Package contents were intimidating at first, 3-piece antenna; assembly on ground was best course, then carry to location. Incredible reception, HD, and digital, with 43 FREE channels! I am 40+ miles north of Detroit OTA market and I'm also catching 1 WINDSOR, CA and 6 TOLEDO, OH channels! Also, love the braces that come with it; makes for strong mast connection. FIVE STARS! Plus, the 20% HD discount made this the BEST buy on the web!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sam Good reception for rural area
The only problem is getting the antenna up on the roof. Definitely a two person job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pipeh Great Antenna, Great Range, Great Price!
I live in Rancho Cucamonga which is about 50 miles away from Los Angeles. I have tried numerous antennas with no luck. This is by far the best antenna out there. All the channels are very clear but you have to be careful on the lenght of your cable/wiring. You will drop a couple of channels if your cable is too long...which you might need a signal amplifier. I get all the channels including CBS and ABC which are the hardest to get in my area.
I installed this antenna in the attic...the antenna is very, very long so make sure you have enough space.
The antenna does not come with a mast, which you need. Make sure you buy one.
You will also need the roof/attic mount.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Apyl Good outdoor antenna
We bought this 100 mile antenna after finally getting rid of Dish. It doesn't reach the full 100 mile distance but we are rural Wisconsin and in the woods. I am not disappointed with this product but not thrilled either. We will need to add a booster to get the 100 mile range from it. We do get most of the local channels. Just missing FOX so we're missing some football games. Set up was easy and pretty self explanatory. I would recommend this antenna to anyone wanting to cut ties with cable/satellite. This does not come with a pole and you have to twist it to get reception.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clint Seems to be great
I've been using this product for about a month now and am overall happy with it. It assembles easy enough thankfully because the instructions are terrible. I get great reception for all my local channels (35-55 miles to towers) and good reception when aiming toward nearest metro towers (75+ miles away). It doesn't come with a mast or mounting hardware. I used a fence post for a mast found in my local HD intended for chain link fence, it works wonderfully. I have a pretty decent run of cable to my tuners (150+ feet), with a couple splitters along the way. Do notice some signal loss there, which I had expected. Overall it is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by santaclarita Does what it claims - picks up signals from really long distances.
I live in Castaic, California, which is on the northern fringe of LA, behind some mountains, and the CM3020 was still able to receive a bunch of stations including 2 CBS, 4 NBC, 5 KTLA, 7 ABC, 9 KCAL, 11 KTTV, 13 KCOP, 28 KCET, plus others like ME TV, KDOC, KLCS, etc. I tried other antennas, but I had to return them because they just wouldn't pick up very many channels. Finally I took a chance on a higher priced CM3020 antenna, and it works great! It was totally worth the money to get rid of the monthly Dish Network bills and headaches.
