Easy to assemble, lightweight antenna for UHF/VHF reception. This antenna combines both VHF and UHF signals into one impedance matching 75 ohm transformer for adapting to the RG-6 or RG-59 standard cables. There are 2 holes provided in the plastic body that hold the actual antenna elements for use in mounting to a wall or antenna mast. I used them with conduit standoff hangers to secure them to a length of regular old pvc pipe. I have to admit that I received more UHF stations within a 40 mile radius than I knew existed. Very good antenna for UHF but I did not reliably receive my favorite VHF station, channel 12 in Cincinnati, all hours of the day. Atmospheric propagation problem at noon time until evening causing that. The design of this antenna is mostly bi-directional, both will pick up from side directions if you are close enough. The only thing that I do not like are that the 3 elements mounted in the plastic body are not functionally connected to either the active elements or to ground. Just there for looks, missed opportunity.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by omaschoo Best reception ever!
We have tried 3 different antennas over the past 10-15 years since we cut our cable service... always had trouble with limited reception and poor quality except on the strongest stations. After installing this in the attic and positioning based upon the readily available tower locations found on the internet, we now have 25% more channels (35!) with crystal-clear reception. We are now pulling in channels 35-40 miles away which we were never able to previously.

This is my 3rd antenna over the past 5 years and it is by far the best. It brings in more channels than the DB2 did and clearer. The other antenna was a new HD antenna styled like the big old rooftop antennas of the past, it had pretty good reception for a while but the wind and birds destroyed it. My new Freevision antenna works much better than the other 2 and is very well engineered things like the lead wire is short and won't flop around in the wind and break off the wires and a neat holder for the cable that runs to the house..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mitch I'M EXCITED ALREADY!
I bought this hoping to hang in my attic so as to reach signals on other side of my home mainly PBS and UNC-TV which is my escape from stupid-tv (courts,killers,westerns...) however I decided to try it inside my room first for the heck of it and I have been very pleased so far. My first try, in light rain netted a 30 channel count! (later was only 27)
It's pulling in channels right through two walls that my flat antenna ($20) barely touched! Tested side by side at the same location the flat antenna's signal strength was "0" to "25%" max in the red unstable zone. This antenna held at 50% peak(25-50%!) signal strength which is enough to hold a stable picture most of the time. This antenna is so light that I can hang it on a sheetrock wall with only a push pin (wire or string thru hole in product) so it's easy to move around and test!
For attic mounting all that one should need is a small nail in a wood truss and some picture or garden wire to hold it up no need for big screws etc unless your attic is a wind tunnel.
The only negative thing was that being the winter holiday season the box I got from Hdepot had been opened and was MISSING the MINI-COAX CABLE which makes it easier to mount on a wall (and essential to mount on a post!) Apparently, store employees take returned products and toss them back on the shelves without inspecting the contents first? "Black Friday Frenzy" Ya know.

I like it! Easy to install however there was no U-bolt in the kit. I had a Channel Master Smartenna and I thought I was doing good to get 33 channels. I installed the Winegard and now have 49 channels (with either antenna there are duplicate channels). Even though the Channel Master is sold as a multi-directional unit, it was quite sensitive to orientation. The Winegard is not as sensitive and the signals at the TV are stronger. I mounted it on my old Dish roof mount. Also, the mount is more rigid than the Channel Master even though the Winegard only uses one U-bolt.
