    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. HD5, HD6, etc would just be the model numbers of the antennas.
    Is this antenna Omnidirectional? i am very happy with the HDTV IndoorOutdoor Antenna, 25 mile range (Item 4730) however it needs to be moved for different stations. this one is more powerful so im thinking of purchasing but i really want something with a broader receiving angle.
    A shopper on Dec 2, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. This item is indeed multidirectional which has a 50 mile range compared to 4730's 25mile range. Thanks!
    Not much instruction on how to mount this thing, should the antenna be horizontal or vertical when mounted on the roof?
    anh d on Nov 24, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The antenna should sit horizontially with the tip at the front pointed in the direction of broadcast antennas you want to receive from.
    Does it pick up VHF signals as well?

    I have a monoprice 7976 Indoor/Outdoor ATSC HDTV Antenna which doesn't seem to be available anymore. I've had good luck with it but I'd like better reception. Is this device better?
    Marc K on Mar 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It may possibly be a little better for it is a more current product. Both antennas will be similar in that they will both have a 50 mile range, use an amplifier, and are indoor/outdoor. You are welcome to try it out if you would like to. We do offer a 30 day return policy, you could return it should it not work out.
    Can this be mounted in my attic then sent to a splitter to all the rooms in my house?
    Gaven G on Apr 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I wouldnt mount it in the attic. I mounted mine first in the bedroom on the window. Great during the day, but lost signal at night. I then mounted it to the top of roof overhang so the antenna part was above the roof line. MUCH better. Was able to receive all channels available during the day and at night. Splicing I would think that would work. Right now it is only attached to the bedroom tv but I would like to put it on the livingroom tv.
    What is the box with on & off switch used

    where is adapter used?
    A shopper on Dec 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: On off switch is for a “ booster “ and the adapter plugs into 110v outlet and attaches to box with on of switch that is located in line between tv and antenna .... it can be positioned any where in between the line or lines
    Is there a user's manual for this item?
    CHARLES C on Nov 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't. It does not work very well at all. Wire from the antenna that attaches to tv is very short.
    I'm mounting this in my attic, can I split the signal to multiple tvs without an amp?
    Brian H on Apr 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Anytime the signal is split you will lose some signal strength. That said, I am using a splitter in my attic with a different (very similar, lower end) Monoprice antenna with only the included amplifier and it works just fine, even 40+ miles from the towers.
    I have the Monoprice 4730 and am very happy with it. I need a new antenna for a bedroom TV. How do you think this will compare?
    Keith P on Feb 10, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: As with any antenna this one works well if there are no obstructions. Any antenna in the house will be only so, so. This one is weather resistant and we mounted it under the eaves of the house for a TV in the garage and it works great.
    Can anyone post photos of this antennae as it is mounted at your location?

    Just about what you'd expect if you're not overly optimistic
    With a mix of VHF and UHF channels at a range of distances from 8 mi to nearly 50 mi and nothing between us but clear blue sky my home seemed like a good candidate for this omni-directional amplified antenna; and even before the price reduction it was easily the best deal I could find.

    It's smaller than I expected and made almost entirely of plastic. It may hold up for a little while outdoors, but I don't expect long life from it in the harsh Oklahoma sun with my network transmitters being nearly due south. If the wind doesn't kill it first then the near-constant UV will probably do it in.

    Instructions are incredibly sparse, and a mild paraphrase might say "hook it up to your TV, then scan your channels." Like others I can't tell what the intended orientation is. From the included tabletop stand you could infer that it's supposed to be horizontal and with the narrower "point" toward the signal source, but that's barely more than an educated guess. I'm currently using it in the horizontal orientation with mixed results.

    A quick indoor test when I unpacked it brought in 8 DTV channels on two UHF frequencies. I had high hopes when I mounted it in its permanent home outside below the old (abandoned) satellite dish. Alas, it now pulls in only one UHF station from that spot, from (somewhat ironically) the farthest transmitter.

    I intend to keep experimenting with placement to see if I can get a decent broad-spectrum result from this unit, but I'm going to keep shopping for something a little more powerful and a lot more durable. In the interim this is a perfectly acceptable value for our rental home.

    Average VHF signa indoorsl, hard to mount indoors
    I ordered two of these for indoor use. The TVs are on different floors, and have different access to over-the-air signals. The downstairs VHF signal was weak and only improved after moving the antenna around a lot and finding a very specific location/orientation about 6 feet above the TV on the wall. It doesn't look good there, so I'll probably mount outside since the TV is near a window screen I can run the cable through.

    Upstairs the TV is mounted high on the wall, and I was able to pull in most stations, at first, but then lost some of the channels over the next few days. Since this TV is not near a window, an outdoor mount is not an option, so I donated to a relative and went back to my UHF/VHF bunny ears antenna, which works just fine there.

    I would say that for indoor use, I get better reception with my AmazonBasics Ultra-Thin Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna - 50 Mile Range, which is also easier to mount on the wall.

    Remember distance and orientation from DTV towers and obstacles between the TV and the towers make a huge difference in reception, so what works for me might not work fo you.

    Overall I would keep this as an outdoor antenna due to it's hard plastic case and difficulty hanging on the indoor wall.

    Solid Performance
    I have installed about 2 dozen of the 25 mile Monoprice outdoor antennas in the rural area and had great performance out of them. When this antenna was released I purchased a couple to test. From my office I gained 10 more channels and average signal strength for channels increased between 10 and 20 percent. Instructions are space and packaging is very non-descript but the product performs well.

    It's about buying the correct one
    So I live in a rural area that also mountainous. O.K. I messed up and bought one without checking with some locals and the county communications office. The range on this one is 50 miles and my tower is 70. All in All I still get 28 channels out of 43 so I'm trading it for a more expensive one from Monoprice. Moral of my story is buy more get more.

    Works great...
    once I had it pointing out the right window. I wasn't getting anything at first because I set up (to test) at a south facing window and pointed it toward the south east. Then I Google searched where to point a TV antenna for my area and found I need to point directly east. Set up at an east-facing window, reran the TV scan for channels and started getting hits immediately. I'm receiving many more channels than I expected.

    The TV towers are about 35-40 miles away from my home. Everything comes in clear. I may go ahead and cut the cable completely or I may just leave this as back up in the event my cable service gets interrupted.

    The amplifier tucks in nicely behind the TV on top of the TVs wall mount.

    Am planning to mount this permanently in the attic. I will update this review if I have any issues there.

    Terrible reception
    I used this to replace a set of rabbit ears stated the have a shorter range than this antenna. My rabbit ears picked up a few channels. This antenna pulled in less than 50% of the channels of the rabbit ears.

    It seemed to work well. I was able to receive 30 channels with great reception, although I had to re position the antenna for certain channels. Not sure if I was able to get all channels in a 50 mile range or not, but the channels I did get came in very clear.
    January 17, 2017
    Works Great
    It works as expected. I haven't fully determined which channels I get and how far away they are, but I get more than the other TV with a store-bought antenna on it does. Good enough for me.
