Answer: 
The antenna comes with a clamp and bracket attached to the antenna body. You need to buy a PVC pipe, aluminum or galvanized steel pipe depending of the Height of antenna, i.e. the length of the pipe. Longer the pipe, stronger the material.

Answer: 
All the mounting hardware is include for a couple of different methods. READ the instructions before assembly. I didn't think I needed to do so and learned differently. It is shipped as flat as possible and you'll need to rotate two of the pieces to make it resemble more of a pyramid.

Answer: 
It does come with mounting hardware that allows attachment to your pole... personally I mounted it in my attic and used lg padded shelf support... $5 at HD. You can mount it directly to an upright stud, but some sort of pole will give you a little more flexibility for directional adjustments. Good luck

Certainly, there was no mast included.
I gave mine away.
I do not recommend this antenna unless you are within a line-of-sight of the TV transmitters.

Answer: 
No cable provided, but HD sells RG6 (replaced the old RG59) in various lengths. I'd recommend going with the quad-shielded RG6 as it'll give a stronger signal, with less loss, than the regular RG6. It's a little more expensive, but worth the extra cash in performance. HD sells both.

In my case this antenna works great for UHF and some VHF TV channels too. More specifically indoors, without amplifier, 10Ft above the ground this antenna received 55 channels from transmitters 10 miles far from my home, and displayed crisp pictures.
If the receiver is a few miles from the transmitter, and the signal path is relatively unobstructed, you may be able to get adequate reception using a small set-top indoor antenna. But as you move farther away, getting usable signal strength becomes trickier.
This is where careful antenna selection and installation becomes essential.

Answer: 
Maybe....but depending on your location, You need to have it facing in your area (everyones will be different) to receive that most channels and add a cheap amp. Then if facing the right direction, you should get 30-40 channels free. Hope this helps.

Hello MikeV, I’m Chris from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
Yes you can mount it in an attic, or even inside your home. The lower it is, the less signal strength it will pull in though.
I hope this helps,
Chris.

Answer: 
The color code, gain chart and phi/azimuth/E-plane patterns are not provided in instructions of this antenna. So guessing, this antenna has low gain (because has 2 vibrators and a reflector), but it is a wide band antenna great in UHF and good in VHF, and is not very directional i.e: phi/azimuth/E-plane patterns should be at leas 30 degrees on each side of the center line.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 127 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best indoor and outdoor antenna for any metropolitan area This is one of the best indoor and outdoor antennas for any metropolitan area. It can be easily installed on a floor lamp in the living room or next to the satellite dish outdoor. It picks up most local HD/VHF/UHF TV channels within 40+ miles. The Home Depot offers the best price. June 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great antenna!!! I have tried EVERY antenna the stores have and Winegard Freevision is the best!!! I am so happy I finally found one that actually works. I use the pole that my dish was mounted to. I'm also using the coaxial cables from my dish and it works perfectly! The U bolt clamps to any pole like a champ! This antenna is best for outdoor use. You also have to turn the antenna to the SWEET SPOT to pick up all your local channels. I highly recommend the Winegard Freevision. August 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finally, an antenna that works Indoors! I have finally found it!! I've tried all the newer model antenna! over several years. Terk, Clearstream, Flat and floppy, RCA flat and antenna ear. none could pull in channels like this one. Crystal clear, pulling in 62 channels in Chandler, AZ. Always had problems I believe, because of big tree in the path of my view ot South Mountain. Catch this! I just have it hanging indoors! I did not put it outdoors!! The most channels I got before this was 51, and many of them were sketchy at best, with a lot of freeze frames. I am so pleased. Thank you FreeVision! July 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This antenna works great for UHF and some VHF TV channels too In my case this antenna works great for UHF and some VHF TV channels too. More specifically indoors, without amplifier, 10Ft above the ground this antenna received 55 channels from transmitters 10 miles far from my home, and displayed crisp pictures. Ai gave to my neighbor for a try, and he told me: “this antenna works beautifully, we are going to cut of the cable, and paid me back the full price.” So I have to buy again the antenna. First you must use TV FOOL to Locate TV transmitters, look at frequency and strength of signal and choose antennas. If there is a weak signal then you have to try with an outdoor antenna up to 30 ft high above the ground. If you get any signal then you may decide to mount two antennas one VHF and another UHF. If the transmitters are located in different angels then you may need one ore two OUTDOOR ANTENNA ROTATOR. And finally if the cable is too long then you may need antenna amplifier. Getting free TV might be easy if you are located near transmitters or complicated if they are far. There are 3 steps you might go through. First check if you can get any signal. Second check connectors, adapters, amplifiers, cables and grounding. Third check again step 1 and 2. If there is a weak signal and you insist to get free TV then hiring and expert to do the job might be a good option. August 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Location, location, location Because we cut out the monthly cable bill, we needed a good antenna. Thought we could get by with an inside mounting, but that didn't pull in enough channels to suit us. Once we permanently mounted it on the condo balcony, it pulls in more channels than we need (think religious & duplicate fox stations from two different cities). We filter out those extras on the TV's channel menu. Keep in mind that strong wind affects reception as much as it does a dish. Try to install this on a clear day, so that your TV's channel search reaps the most benefit. June 28, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent up high Mounted on commercial bldg Hempstead. Zip 11550, about 25 miles to NYC towers, old antenna had 27 stations, this one 70!!!
