    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. HD5, HD6, etc would just be the model numbers of the antennas.
    How does power get injected? Description says "active" but the picture doesn't show any power connections. Also, is it designed for outdoor installation?
    Shaw S on Nov 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Herman P is correct. The black box (which is small, only about 2" X 1" X 1") has three connections: power in from an included AC adapter, coaxial in from the antenna, and coaxial out to the TV.
    What size is this and how does it compare to the previous model HDA-5700 (no longer shown)?
    Al G on Apr 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Dimensions are 12.75 x 10.5 x 3

    It is physically larger and has a longer range that the 5700

    On Antenna web it shows what color coded antenna will produce in signal. What is the color code for this one?
    ELIZABETH N on Oct 22, 2017
    What are the dimensions of the antenna?
    Daniel B on Apr 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Dimensions are 12.75 x 10.5 x 3 inches

    What's the length of the coax cable that comes with this antenna? Thanks.
    martin k on Jan 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, this item should have about 4-5ft of coax cable that comes with the antenna. Thank you!
    What is the thickness?
    A shopper on Dec 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It is about 1/4" thick, but because it's curved, the antenna overall has a thickness of around 1.25". And if you include the black plastic stand (shown in the picture), it's more like 3.5" thick.
    Do you have a recommended converter for use with an older, non-digital ready TV?
    A shopper on Apr 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we would not have any digital converters available. However, any digital converter should work just fine.
    Does this work in a basement?
    Jonathan S on Dec 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It depends on how deep the basement is, if it is entirely underground then no as radio waves don't travel through the earth. If you can place the antenna above ground then if it is in range of the transmitter it should work, but the higher the better.
    does it pick up VHF signals? and if so, what is the distance?
    A shopper on Apr 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The specs specify UHF operation, but a few HDTV channels are in VHF band so it might still work for you. I can't possibly specify the VHF range since there are no antenna/pre-amp details provided nor did you specify transmitter ERP, but, I do receive one HDTV channel on VHF very well (digital ch 8), in fact better than my previous antenna.
    Is this paintable?
    A shopper on Dec 9, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: No antenna should be painted. All dings, bends, or any other modifications may alter the reception of the device in a negative manner. The type of paint used is irrelevant. An antenna not only directly receives signals, it also reflects signals into the sensing element. The components receiving aspects of an antenna are cut to specific sizes to ensure maximum performance.
    Where should I mount the antenna?
    A shopper on Dec 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The TV towers I need to be able to see are largely due South of me and the location of my primary TV is near a picture Window on the South aide of the house and I live on a South-facing slope so it was an easy choice for me, use the included support leg provided to just put it on the entertainment center next to the TV with the backside pointed South. I did find that having the white convex surface point into the room, making the backside act like a concave reflector pointed South gave me the best reception/signal strength.
    Generally speaking, having the concave side point in the direction of where your primary TV signals come from is likely the best, positioned high enough to minimize any line-of-sight obstacles. But if you get signals from a variety of directions then you might want to try pointing the convex (white) side towards the average azimuth between your various signal sources. And if that is your case, you may find yourself needing to reposition the antenna for optical signal when you want to watch a particular channel.
    But as I said, in my location I have it sitting on a countertop and never need to touch it. It's small enough that it isn't an eyesore - it has a clean and efficient look to it and blends in well with other items on the same countertop.
    Can it be used outdoors?
    A shopper on Dec 11, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I don't believe is made to handle the elements but you can put it in the attic if you have an outlet.
    is this antenna directional?
    A shopper on Dec 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It is quite directional: I live about 40 miles S of Green Bay WI and get all of the broadcasters that utilize one of the two tower locations for that city. The other one I have a bit of ghosting, but still watchable if I lower my expectations. As for the the Milwaukee stations (45+ miles to my south) I see or detect nothing.
    Does it matter which way the coax cables are wired?
    Gary G on Jan 15, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Not sure I understand your question (or that you phrased it correctly). There's only ONE way to wire this: one end of the coax goes into the antenna and the other end either into the TV or first into the amplifier, which then goes into the TV.
    Can this antenna be mounted outside? The description says it is weather resistant, but did not see any other indication.
    A shopper on Aug 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Im sure you could mount it outside.It seems to be well sealed.the only problems would be finding away to mount antenna and you might lose a little performance when you extend cable.Antenna only has 6 foot cable
    What is chemical referred to the warning label? Says may cause cancer
    A shopper on Jul 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The state of California has blessed us with these labels in an effort to protect consumers. Now, since almost every product contains traces of some element or compound "known to cause cancer", almost every product sold in California (and therefore the US, since they don't want to print two different labels, nor risk a non-CA label being sold in CA) has to have the label as a CYA.

    Shoot, there are trace amounts of uranium dissolved in almost all water -- water should be labeled!
    I have 2 older TV's - not HD - that worked fine with cable. I get absolutely no channels at all on either TV with this antenna. While trying to program channels they indicate there is no signal. I am within 20 miles of the broadcast towers in the Philadelphia area. Do I need something else to make this antenna operate?
    Joe L on Apr 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If your TVs are old enough that they are not digital-ready, then you will need a digital-to-analog converter box to take the digital over-the-air TV signals and convert them into the old analog signal that your TV can accept.

    Also double-check that you have the power supply properly connected to the little black box, and the antenna and TV each connected to the proper coax ports on the box.
    Can this antenna be used passively without the amplifier?
    New User U on Apr 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, though the range will drop dramatically. Even with the amplifier, I found this antenna to be less effective than the 30-mile Mohu I intended to replace with it. But the Mohu also costs noticeably more.
    I'm wondering if this product contains all that is needed inc col-axial cable for set up?
    A shopper on Nov 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If you look at the picture in the lower left corner, you will see the antenna connector with a ~1m lead
    What is the effective range? I am located midway between two sources of TV signals, and they are both about 45 miles in both directions.

    Active Curved HD5 HDTV Antenna, 60 Mile Range
    Active Set Top HD4 HDTV Antenna, 60 Mile Range
    Active Set Top HD4 HDTV Antenna, 60 Mile Range
    BEST ANSWER: If you have flat terrain with no large obstructions, you should be good either way, but this antenna is directional so you may have to turn it to get the best reception for each.
    Can this be powered via TV's powered USB port at 5v 0.5 amp?
    Philip O on Dec 7, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: No. The power supply provided with the antenna is 6.0 volts at 100 ma and is inline with the RF cable from the antenna to the monitor RF input.
    how can i use in india pls suggest me ?
    A shopper on Aug 30, 2017
    Does the amplifier require power? If so and the coax is only 4 - 5 feet in length, doesn't this indicate a difficulty in mounting it on a pole?

    Getting great reception and able to wall mount it...warning label a bit weird though
    This antenna is working great and I was able to wall mount it instead of using the stand like others said was only option. There are two small keyhole slots that you can use to mount to a wall. The slots are small but just need to get two small screws and maybe some small anchors to mount it to a wall.

    One things that worries me a bit though is the warning label on the box that reads "Warning: This product may contain a chemical known to the State of Californina to cause Cancer or Birth Defects or other Reproductive Harm."

    Better reception than an outdoor antenna
    This is the antenna you are looking for. I had a roof antenna for HDTV but suffered from pixelation and had to replace the cable several times. Have been using one of those flat antennas with an amplifier in my attic. Again problems with pixelation. Because there is no way to hang this on the wall, I had to rest this antenna on the floor of the attic so it is 6 feet lower than the last antenna. But, the reception is so much better and so stable. everything comes in and no pixelation.

    Great reception, but needs mounting options.
    This antenna performs like a champ, in keeping with its 60-mile range claim. Even indoors, it pulls in stations that its predecessor, a smaller 35-mile Monoprice, couldn't get or got only with pixelation.
    BUT - this one lacks the smaller antenna's ability to mount to walls. Its leg stand lets it rest on a level surface only. So if there's no suitably located shelf, you have to build one.
    Highly recommended if you have, or will build, a shelf to rest the antenna on.

    PROS: Excellent performance.

    CONS: Can't mount it to a wall.
    Easy Wall Mounting Method is available with a little engineering
    For the users lamenting the lack of a wall mounting method, here's my suggestion...

    Purchase the Monoprice Speaker Wall Mounting Bracket - White Product # 3013 and go buy a pack of 3M Command™ Refill Strips. The Command strip is more than sufficient to hold the weight of the antenna, especially if you loop the antenna wire over the bracket so it isn't pulling down on the adhesive.

    ABC AT LAST!!!
    After moving to my own apt. I quickly discovered I couldn't afford cable and decided to do the OTA and Tivo. The antenna that I purchased from Walmart had excellent reviews, yet no matter where I put the antenna I could NOT pick up ABC. I saw this antenna and decided to give it a shot. I NOW GET ABC!!! Along with the other channels coming in perfectly. Before about every 2 weeks I had to move the antenna, this one has been in the same spot and STILL WORKS!! I would recommend this antenna without hesitation.

    Not good
    I love monoprice and have always received quality products from them, but this is not one of them. Reception was worse than old rabbit ears and much worse than the newer style flat antennas of a different brand. Do not expect anywhere near a 60 mile range.
    December 4, 2016
    Looks good, results are nothing special
    Everything looks like it should pull in a lot of stations but performance was not that special. I got the same results from a set of rabbit ears, meant for VHF reception.

    I am getting less channel with the power on. I just use it without using the power.

    Indoor antenna
    Marginal performance where I can only pick up 6 stations. I made a home made antenna out of wire coat hangers, non powered and I pick up 35+stations.
    I would recommend it only if you are in an urban area with local stations nearby.
    Physically, it needs some sort of wall hanging bracket. I tried a small wooden shelf.

    Did not work very well for me
    I thought this might be an improvement for me since it is supposed to have a considerably longer range than the Monoprice # 4730 which is what I have been using for a while now. However I was not happy with this antenna, it hardly worked at all for me. I am still using the # 4730 and will probably just throw this one in the trash as it was very disappointing.
