    Comments about RadioShack® Amplified HDTV Antenna:

    I got this to replace a much older Radio Shack rabbit ears. The TV had stopped receiving one of the local stations and I had been unable to tune it in, and then lost all the stations while messing with it. I thought perhaps the old switches or connections had loosened and figured $20 for a new one might be a good investment. (It was on sale.) Plus the salesperson pointed to this one when i asked her which one she would recommend. But I was disappointed that this one was no improvement. Furthermore, one of the rabbit ear peices broke almost as soon as I extended it, as a result of my hitting it by accident. I was surprised as I did not think I had hit it very hard. It is pretty thin and broke too easily in my view.
    My other complaint is that the directions are not very clear. We have had only digital over the air broadcasts for some years, and the VHF band was given up, as I understand it. But the directions still refer to VHF and are not clear on which part of the antenna should be needed for digiatl stations, or how to aim it.

    Comments about RadioShack® Amplified HDTV Antenna:

    We tried several other models from other stores, and saw this one rated on Consumer Reports. The rating we saw noted that different antennas work in different houses (depending on all the things that can change your reception), but the fine-tuning on this one allows us to get all the channels we want!

      Comments about RadioShack® Amplified HDTV Antenna:

      NOTE: My use is FM Radio only!! Have not used for TV reception and probably will not because I'm using it in the basement of my house.

      Works good, even without the AC adapter plugged in, plug in the AC adapter and voila! Stations pull in very nicely. Clean, no static, reliable.

        Based on the reception map -
        http://transition.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/dtvmaps/

        I found that I could use indoor antenna. I checked the DIY antennas first they were ugly and I calculated the cost around $20 without any amplification.
        Then I found this antenna for the same price - it was no brainer. I was sceptical at first, but then my TV scanned in 67 channels with the antenna sitting on the floor!!!

        I hope it is durable, because I am using it a lot.

        Comments about RadioShack® Amplified HDTV Antenna:

        I began losing over air channels with the cheapest antenna. So, I bought this one. There was no instruction book with it, so I had to call the store to get help. With the old antenna I lost one channel and was beginning to lose a major network channel. (the one I like best). The new antenna won't pick up either channel. I am becoming quite frustrated with this. I live in the city at the highest point (not a mountain) in my area. I've tried several positions with it and it just won't do the job. It is also showing signs of losing some reception on a couple of PBS channels.

                Comments about RadioShack® Amplified HDTV Antenna:

                After several weeks of trying several antennas that HOPEFULLY might bring in some over the air channels, (including one that required a 25' long coaxial cable and placed in the window), this one, which was the fourth one to be tried, worked the best. Found it to be great in every sense of the word. ALL channels come in well enough to be very satisfied... including the difficult to get VHF channels. It required some minor adjustments, but found it was very easy to do and only took a few minutes.

                    Does what it claims though I did have to turn up the gain, so you'll need an ac outlet. This is for those days that Cable goes down so generally it is for staying in touch with the local world.
