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."

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 4.2 out of 5 by 215.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I had a TV set up in my spare room for the Grand kids to play video games for their entertainment... I had a TV set up in my spare room for the Grand kids to play video games for their entertainment when visiting. I also had a treadmill that was gathering dust and I was gathering extra pounds since my retirement. My son suggested purchasing this antenna so I could watch TV while on the treadmill. The reception is great and as a plus, I can watch local alternative channels instead of political broadcast.

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!

"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 4 out of 5 by from Picks up a lot of channels The antenna works really well -- I have 67 HD channels! However, I noticed that if I have my blinds down, it will cause the picture and audio to glitch like crazy. So I always have the blinds just above it so I get a good picture. Might be a pain if you put it on a really sunny window and there's glare on your TV. But other than that, it works really well and I would recommend it.

We bought this Feb 4, 2017 to watch the Superbowl since we don't have cable. The picture quality was great. The picture did scramble a few times (with a very quick correction) but it could be due to the location of the antenna. Though, even with that, it came by quickly and stayed on without any other issues. We live in NE Cobb County, Georgia for those who need a reference. I would definitely recommend this and would buy it again.
