Product Overview

The FlatWave Amped Razor Thin HDTV Indoor Antenna is the most advanced HDTV antenna available. Building off the high performance US patented dual band element design of the original FlatWave, our engineers have embedded a state of the art ultra low noise preamplifier with an amazingly low 1.0 db. typical noise figure, directly at the elements where 100% of the signal is amplified; resulting in never before seen range and performance from an indoor antenna. The FlatWave Amped also features a new USB power supply with LED power indicator. When plugged into a TV with a USB for power the amplifier turns on and off with the TV, saving you energy. No need to worry if you have an older TV set or converter box because a 110V adapter is included. Designed by Winegard, the antenna experts.

Flat Wave Amped HD TV Indoor Antenna is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop paying for HD channels that are already free! Like a million others I have said goodbye to cable TV and living my life cord free for about 5 years now. The worst part was when cable companies started encrypting basic free to air channels and you had to pay a significant amount to watch these on your TV using the cable line (plus another fee if you want these in HD). I have been using the leaf antenna and have been pleased with the results so far. However, for certain channels I had to place the antenna in a certain direction otherwise the reception would not be perfect. I decided to give this a try since this was amped unlike other basic low profile antennas. The results have been more than satisfactory. All the free to air channels in my area are crisp and the reception is flawless. I would however suggest that before buying this, please check antennaweb or any similar website to see the FTA channel reception in your area. The installation is very simple. The antenna comes with a USB powered amp which you can power with the TVs USB port or if your TV does not have it, the product comes with an extra charger. Overall, very happy with this product and would recommend this for every cord cutter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Antenna! This antenna works great! It is small, about a foot square, lightweight and receives signals better than I expected! It is white on one side and black on the other. I attached it to the wall behind my TV and connected it to the antenna in. It comes with a plug-in USB power supply since it is amplified, but I plugged the USB cable into a spare port on my TV. I then initiated a channel scan (important) and it found 56 channels in my suburban location. This is better than the roof antenna I used to have! The picture is fantastic, and now I get high Definition TV for free! Great for the local channels or when the weather makes satellite unusable. Great item!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "TOP RATED" INDOOR HDTV ANTENNA, BUT HERE'S SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW! This writer's review of the Winegard Flatwave FL5500A Indoor HDTV antenna will start off differently than other reviews as in the beginning I won't focus on the product, but rather, the "user" of this antenna. If you live in a home, you might want to use a Winegard "exterior/chimney mount" antenna for better results and point it in the proper direction of your broadcast towers. I live in a condominium and I don't have that option. Also, you may want to go on to websites like (and there are other websites!) and see where your broadcast towers are located to determine distance as well. Try to consider that things like buildings blocking reception and tall trees and, yes, even atmospheric conditions like wind and rain "can" effect this TV antenna's or other TV antennas' performance. The other product reviewers who indicate that a window mount is best are correct--when the antenna is mounted in the proper location. When I first did set up, I did try positioning this antenna in several locations on the best window exposure that I have available and I got fantastic results ("45" TV channels!), but when I lowered my 1" aluminum mini blinds most of the channels were lost.. It was because the aluminum blinds blocked the broadcast signal from reaching the antenna. I found out that by replacing the above 1" aluminum blinds with 1" VINYL BLINDS that came close to matching the aluminum ones in appearance that this did the trick. I got back ALL 45 TV channels--as if the blinds were in the full open position. Another tip a Winegard representative told me is "not" to incorporate a coaxial "extension" cable of more than 10 feet in length as this could also negatively effect the antenna's reception. In the 2+ years that I have been using this model, I've replaced them a few times as I will eventually get problems with no signal or pixelization and I believe that something happens to the antenna's amplifier over time. This is why I gave this great antenna a "4" star rating and not a "5" star rating. The user of this antenna will have better results over time (I believe) if their television has a USB port on their TV as connecting the antenna's amplifier to the TV's USB port will give the antenna's amplifier some "rest" when the TV is not in use. When the antenna's amplifier is plugged into a wall outlet (another option), it stays on all of the time. This antenna, they say, was modeled after military mud flap technology and it has a dark side and a white side so it can better blend in with your interior décor. When mounting this antenna with the included 3m Command Strips (X2), be careful not to cover the "wires" that are integrated into the antenna's body. You can best see them by holding the antenna up to the light.The antenna comes with two 3m Command Strips, but I use four 3m Command Strips for better stability. It's appropriate to mention that Winegard has great tech support. Please don't forget to do those TV channel scans which are recommended to be done every 30 days, but I don't conduct them nearly as often. Even the cable companies recognize that there are large numbers of people out there who want to cut-the-cable and save money, so why not give this option a try--if all you are able to do or want to do is utilize the best there is out there in an indoor HDTV antennas?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must use on window. excellent product! Don't listen to the bad reviews. They don't know what they are doing! I have hung 3 antennas now and I do know what I'm talking about. I have 3 antennas by 3 different makers. They are pretty much all the same. But to get good reception it really should hang on a window, preferably facing the nearest tv station transmitter towers up to 50 miles away. We get All the channels south of us and repeat channels north of us in the next county! But you gotta play with moving it around to get the best reception AND you should rescan for channels once you find the best location. Hope this helps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, be sure to check your area first! This antenna is very sleek, and incredibly easy to set up. It's basically a plug and play, all you need to do is plug the device in, position the antenna where you'd like it, and then run a channel search. I held the antenna in several locations to find the best spot before adhering it using the included Command Strips. That being said, I encourage you to run a channel search at before you buy. This device is NOT a miracle worker. I have a HUGE rock wall behind my house, and previously was only able to pick up one channel. With the Flat Wave Amped, I got four. However, from the scanner, I knew that was likely, so I'm not upset. I tested this antenna at a friends house, and got many more, very clear channels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from By far the best indoor antenna! This is by far the best indoor antenna, at least for my specific area. Of all the indoor antennas, this one receives the most channels and the most mainstream broadcast channels (ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, PBS, CW, ION). The design is exactly the same as other branded antennas, so it is widely used across different brands. It is extremely flat and very lightweight, so it can be taped to the wall or window if you don't mind how it looks. It comes with 3M command strips for this purpose. It's white, but I don't think it can be painted without negatively affecting performance. You absolutely should take the time to place it in just the right place. Even a few inches in any direction along the wall made a major difference in the channels I received, so take the time to find the 'sweet spot' and enjoy your free HD reception! Pair this with high speed internet and you're good to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reception! Cut the cord! Love this flat wave antenna! Had a previous flat tv antenna since cutting our cable cord a number of years ago. This flat antenna comes with a powered amplifier that really helps bring in distance or low signal channels! You can use it either with the black side or white side out, making it versatile if you want to hide it. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to cut cable!
