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.

I rent this house so mounting an antenna on the roof is NOT an option, Can I mount this below the roof level on a railing for the deck? Or can it simply in the attic?

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.

Mike, I am not sure if this will work for your application, however both of mine are only 10 feet off the ground and both mounted outside. Depending on the lay of the land and what obstacles are in the immediate vicinity, I believe it would work from an attic.

Answer: 
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: 
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.

Fran, I am not familiar with the color codes you are referring. I did check the box and directions and found no reference. The antenna is rated (per the box) at 0-30 miles. I am 43 miles from the broadcasting towers and receive 33 crystal clear channels. A lot of bang for the buck.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 117 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good It was simple to install, but I live in the country where thier are mountains surrondy my home. The reseption was not what I expected. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Got all the free channels. Am happy with my antenna just saved mi extra $15 on my twc bill, thank u homedepot. June 21, 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 Freevision Antenna 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.. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Antenna Pulls in sixty eight channels. Signal strength lower than previous antenna, but consistent... no artifacts,picture excellent. Easy to assemble. I am located twenty eight miles from transmitters. Installed on side of house. Get all the major networks May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic little device This is the third inside antenna I've purchased for my workshop which is too far away from my in-home digital system (didn't want to pay the extra $$$ each month for an additional box). First one was awful. Second one was okay but I'd have to move my antenna around to catch the signal continually! I thought there has got to be a better antenna out there somewhere. Then I saw this reasonably priced outdoor/indoor antenna on the Home Depot website and thought I'd give it a try. Didn't even have to order it on-line. It works perfectly and my husband even commented how he'd NEVER installed an antenna this easily/quickly in his life!!! You can't beat $35.00 for this little jewel! I highly recommend it. March 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good buy 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. April 3, 2016
