Customer Questions & Answers

Does this antenna come with everything you need?

Asked by: quilter46
All of the answers offered thus far (i.e., as of December 6th, 2016) seem to indicate "yes this antenna comes with everything you need;" however that may not be so in every case! As or more important than conducting a channel scan during set up of this antenna is determining the best location to place this antenna. The coax cord on this model is 15 feet which is 3 feet shorter than the 18 feet coax cable integrated into the FL5500A "amplified" version. You may want or need to add a section of "additional" coax cable--not too long; however, as you may have some signal loss! You will quickly see that the ends of the extension coax that you purchase, say, in the home centers have 2 "female" ends so you will need a male--to male connector (see image provided!) to join these sections of coax cable (one being the antenna's coax cable). Also, if you later find out that you need or want an amplifier, Winegard makes them and one is referred to as their Winegard amplifier model LN-100 "BOOST."

will it work for rv in camping grounds

need something easy
Asked by: camper
Yes, depending upon your location and the location of broadcaster transmitters. TV signals are almost entirely UHF now, and UHF prefers line-of-sight. So obstructions will reduce signal strength. Higher placement of the antenna will help, but if you're 50 miles from the nearest broadcaster and down in a valley among trees, you'll likely not get any reception. If you're within 30 miles or so and up high, you should be fine. This antenna is somewhat directional, so best reception is generally perpendicular to the "flat" side of the antenna.

Flatwave Razor Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 212.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Make sure that you use the correct setting for your channel scan. My first scan came up with only 4 channels, but I did not realize that the default setting was cable. I switched the setting to air, the next scan I got over 30 channels. It is likley to be the issue with most of the 1 star rating below. One nice feature is the extra long cable allowing more location choices. Overall, good price for the quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Placed antenna on window near TV, interior wall did not work as well, and now have all broadcast stations for free. Take that Comcast! We live about 20 miles from broadcast antennas, and the picture looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great antenna This antenna is a great buy. Excellent bang for the buck. The antenna on its own isnt anything fancy. It's what it can do that is great. And that is to provide clear OTA digital channels to your TV. I got tired of paying the cable company for basic TV. The antenna was able to pull in over 60 digital channels in my area here in Los Angeles. I live near Glendale which is not far from Mount Wilson where the majority of the broadcasting towers are for Los Angeles. The key is to try the antenna first in different spots in your place. It's usually best to place the antenna in a window so that is has as clear a "line of sight" to the broadcasting towers as possible. Use some clear tape such as scotch tape at first while finding the right spot for reception. In LA you want to position the antenna facing north towards Mount Wilson. Be patient while repositioning the antenna for best reception. It took a bit of tweaking(repositioning) to make sure channels came in as clear as possible. When you have found the final mounting spot for best reception. Then use the included double-sided tape strips for final mounting. We finally did it and now we get the basic TV channels for LA such as channels 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13. And even ION channel and a bunch of other digital TV channels. The HD channels actually look much better from the broadcasting towers than from the cable company. And all for free! I called the cable company and cancelled my basic TV service. Great antenna!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Way back" on October 23rd, 2016, I wrote a Home Depot product review under the nickname of Jerse... "Way back" on October 23rd, 2016, I wrote a Home Depot product review under the nickname of JerseyMike for the Winegard Flatwave FL5500A Indoor HDTV Antenna which is the "amplified" version of this Winegard Flatwave FL5000H. I gave the FL5500A model a very high rating as I was using it on a slightly older (by a few "months!") LED TV set. However, when I connected a newer set to that "same" antenna where the antenna was located in the same position, the TV stations were breaking up like crazy and some TV stations I could not even get--even major ones! A Winegard technician explained to me that it could have something to do with the newer TV's tuner--perhaps, the newer TV's tuner was more sensitive or more powerful. I gave this "non" amplified FL5000H model a try. I am only some 30 miles away from lots and lots of TV broadcast towers; however, my best window is facing "East" (N.B. almost all of my broadcast towers are South of me) and I live in a condo and the building next to my unit "blocks" the path of my antenna (2 strikes against me!)--or so I thought. I mentioned in the 10-23-2016 product review for the amplified FL5500 model how I learned to use vinyl mini blinds in the window where the antenna is placed and not aluminum mini blinds as the aluminum blinds block the broadcast signal from reaching the antenna and I also mentioned that when you use the 3m command strips to mount the antenna not to cover the wire strips inside of the antenna's body. This antenna claims to be good for up to 35 miles; whereas, the amplified version claims to be good for up to 50 miles, but I learned that engaging in "overkill" is not always the best approach--in my case having this non-amplified version gives me a total of "40" channels with almost perfect reception on a consistent basis. I deleted from the channel list after the scan the duplicate channels and the audio only channels--there were "actually" more channels! It is important to note that the FL5500S model is the same as the FL5500A (both amplified versions) and the FL5000H model is the same as the FL5000 model (both non-amplified). If you are like me, you "may" place heavy emphasis on some of the negative product reviews, but use of this type of product is not like math--everyone's experiences depend on a lot of factors. "I'm" glad that I trusted these "top" rated antennas and I hope that you will be too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Antennae I purchased this product a week ago at the Home Depot. I've known the Winegard product line for many years, including back when they made home satellite dishes. I tried the Mohu antennae on another television several years ago, and found that it did not stand out among an RCA antennae that I had and several others. I figured I'd try the Winegard and was pleasantly surprised. The antennae is very thin as stated in their ads, and the coax cable is included all in one piece. All I had to do was place the antennae on a nearby wall and attach the cable to the television and run a scan of the channels. I only live about 25 miles from the mountain top local transmitters for our stations. I was able to pick up over 40 channels, with a very high quality picture on most all of them, especially on the well known stations. I found other stations of very good quality that I did not even know existed. I cancelled my cable subscription and am saving a bundle each month now and am not paying to watch commercials. I highly recommend this antennae.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Decent Cable-Cutter First, I digress a little: After years of paying for Comcast cable TV service, we decided that we really weren't watching enough TV to justify the cost. Xfinity is a good service, and the Triple Play option (TV, internet, phone) for $99 is a pretty good deal, but we found that other than for news & weather, we mostly were streaming programming from Hulu, Amazon or Netflix (although we did use On Demand). Of course, to get Hi Def programming, there's another $10 each month, plus $4 per month for each additional TV, plus tax and fees... it got to be over $130 per month as the best deal we could negotiate. So, we decided to move to internet only ... and, by the way, Comcast has the best deal going for our location with 25 mb/s for $40 per month for a 1-year sign-up. DSL tops out at 1 mb/s where we are and satellite based internet just can't compete at all. Comcast's service is extremely reliable (we've had maybe a half dozen small outages in a decade), and 25 mb/s is enough data to do anything we need. Comcast can also get you 75 mb/s for $10 more per month. So, we needed an antenna to get some non-streamed live TV reception, and the quick answer was trying an indoor antenna. I did a little checking via various internet sites to determine where the broadcast sites in our area are located, and found that we have several about 35-40 miles in a north/north-west direction. The reviews of the Flatwave indoor antenna were decent, and for about $25 I thought we'd try it. I hung it as high on the wall as I could get it so that it was roughly perpendicular to the direction of the broadcast sites, and amazingly, an auto channel search found 48 channels (including sub-channels)! Some were being broadcast from almost 50 miles away! I was very pleasantly surprised! So I definitely recommend this antenna if this is the type of antenna you need. Of course, we have several TVs in the house, as well as an extensive RG-6 quad shield distribution system that I had installed when we built our home. So having a centralized antenna for all TVs in the house is what I was after for a permanent arrangement. Although legally, anyone can put up an outside antenna, I didn't want to have to debate that with our homeowners' association, so I decided to try an attic installation. (Plus outdoor antennas aren't really all that attractive anyway.) Part of my cable distribution system was an unused line in the attic, but we have a concrete tile roof, so how well this approach might work was a question. I did a little research and found a 2-bay quad bow-tie antenna for $55 from MCM Electronics, very similar in design to a highly regarded ChannelMaster. I can now confirm that the additional elevation more than compensates for the tile on our roof... we now get 74 channels with great signal strength on most of them. These types of antennas are very directional, by necessity, to get the kind of gain that they do, and fortunately our broadcasters are all within about 30 degrees of each other. Pointing to the middle of these worked best, providing still decent (but lower) signal strength from those on either side. One other digression: when we changed to internet only, we still wanted a home phone in addition to our cell phones so that we could continue to have multiple phone instruments throughout the house. The easy solution was a $48 OBi200 box and $5 per month internet based (VOIP) unlimited phone service from PhonePower. $60 per year is a deal they offer if you buy the OBi box. So we now have our own "triple play" of sorts, for about $80 less per month. Two month's savings paid for the attic antenna and the VOIP box. If you're wondering, TV channels received "over the air" are crystal clear and actually a little better quality than cable or satellite TV channels. The reason being that the latter are compressed and the over the air signals are not. As long as you have decent signal strength, you'll get excellent picture quality. Granted, you can't receive "cable" channels, but there's a solution for much of that too if you can't live without them: Sling TV, which is $20 per month. Of course that raises the monthly total cost. We're not using Sling's service as we find more than enough programming via Hulu, Amazon and Netflix. Sorry for the long story, but I'm hoping my experience might be of value to someone else. Bottom line on the Flatwave: if you are within 30-40 miles of your local broadcast sites, this antenna should work for you. Range is probably a little less if you're down low and/or have a lot of obstructions (trees, hills) because UHF signals prefer line-of-sight. My mother is now using our Flatwave as she is also a cable-cutter, and it's working great for her. :-)
