How to Get It

Product Overview

The DB8e multi-directional antenna combines the compact size of the already-popular DB4e bowtie with a wider angle of reception, thus forming one of the most powerful multi-directional, flexible aiming outdoor HDTV antennas available on the market. The specially designed brackets allow the antenna panels to turn in a 180 degree loop to target broadcast towers in any direction. Range 70+ Miles. The most powerful HDTV antenna in the world-a star is born. With an extended long range of 70+ miles and unsurpassed gain of 17.4 dB, this new multi-directional Bowtie antenna has another capability that blows the competition right out of the water, the specially designed brackets allow the antenna to turn in a 180 degree loop to target transmitting towers in any direction.

Great antenna. Great reception. Upgrade the nuts.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a very good antenna. The reception that we get is amazing, as the antenna is on a very tall wind turbine pole. A suggestion for the manufacturer: Skip the plain nuts and lock washers and use nylon locknuts that won't vibrate loose over time. This particular antenna replaces one that came apart in this winter's windstorms. Suggestion for buyers: take the plain nuts to the hardware store and replace then with nylon locknuts, or at least use some thread-lock.

DB8 retrofit
I was afraid of lightning strikes, so I moved my DB8 from the rooftop to the attic. I made these hangers so I could just hook the antenna over the cross members without having to climb up there to attach the antenna and probably killing myself in the process. It works great! I get just as many channels with the antenna in the attic as I did when it was mounted outside on the roof.

      Great antenna
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Installed on garage roof. Despite large trees in front of antenna got 45+ channels from 14 or 15 stations in St Louis. Some were full power stations and some were low power stations. They were 28 to 47 miles away. Only one or two of the low power stations would occasionally drop out. We are now moving to the middle of Missouri and the antenna is going with us.

        Better image quality than cable
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My house in in the shadow of a hill from the TV towers. I used TVfool to do signal analysis which was confirmed by the telephone support / sales person. I angled the two sides of the antenna 77 degrees apart to pick up stations in two directions. I receive all station that I was hoping for. The picture is crystal clear even in wind, rain and hail storms. I wish that I knew the effective cross-sectional area when purchasing a mast.

          So far, so good.
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Installed on my roof with the large post from the site, used compass settings from the site, used the premium cable from the site, and the 4 splitter amp from the site. Installation was a breeze, received 35 HD channels with excellent reception. Installed it in my existing cable TV network in my utility room...simply plugged each room's cable in the new splitter from the cable's splitter and used termination caps on the empty cable spots. (I still subscribe to the cable internet.) The only modification I had to make was to the black box on the antenna itself. The premium cable diameter is too large to fit in the pre-molded base and lid so I had to use a 1/2 inch dia. drill to "mill" out the hole to fit the large cable so I could close the lid.

            Great antenna
            cut the cable and bought this antenna to pick up the local stations. I'm 35 miles from one market and 50 miles from another market. I pointed one panel at each market (roughly 120 degrees difference). I pick up all stations from both markets very reliably. I did add a vhf kit to the one side to pick up channel 8. Also using the juice amplifier and mounted to a 5' mast on my single story chimney. Very easy assembly and installation.
