With a standard coaxial cable, the antenna is compatible with virtually any living room television, portable TV or USB TV tuner.

Additionally, with the cable supplied being 1.5m in length, you will have the freedom to reposition the antenna easily for the best reception.

Another advantage of the DTA240 is its magnetic base. Not only does this allow you to position the aerial more easily, it also utilizes the surface area of the metal to improve reception still further.

I got DTA 206, DTA 240, and DTA 250. For the price it was not a problem, I thought if anything did not work well, I'd send it back. They all worked on three different TV's, the antenna got 68 digital channels with a clear picture. I have an old analog TV and it got 68 channels with the converter box and antenna. I read a review that suggested putting the antenna on a metal disc, I put them on metal coasters instead. for less than $25,00 for all three, I'd buy them again. (Posted on 30/12/2013)

We have small TV in our bedroom that isn't connected to the satellite and couldn't receive the local channels (about 40 miles away). I hooked this device into the TV incoming signal connection and all the channels come in ! (Posted on 31/08/2013)
Good for portable use Review by jr_Tech

This antenna is pretty small and *not* amplified, but I really needed something that would be provide decent reception with a small portable TV, without needing to hold the portable at "just the right spot in front of the window". This "fat monopole" works well enough in my suburban area, usually providing reception of the major channels. Signal strength is improved if the magnetic base is stuck to a large metallic object, such as a refrigerator, to provide a "ground plane". I am pleased with the performance of this antenna.

second time writing this review. first one apparently didnt take. for the price you cannot go wrong. i purchased way more expensive antennas and this little guy beats them all. I live way out in a rural area maybe 35 miles from the center of the city and i get around 10 channels with this where i got 0 with any of the other antennas i have tried. (Posted on 28/07/2013)
Good - did the trick Review by Dwnundrguy

Nothing bad to say about it. Worked at least as well as the previous one (which was an un-powered telescoping 3' one on a portable TV on my boat). Have to say I was hoping to see a noticable improvement, given this one was powered and my previous one was not. Hard to compare them as my previous one is broken and I cant put them side to side. Im pretty comfortable this one was equal or better in my opinion. Bottom line I was able to move it around to find a position where the picture was clear - which is at the end of the day, what you want. I did need to move it a little for different channels - just like I would with the old one. For the price - it is not a bad choice, and to be honest, I have tried various TV ariels in the past and none have been super great, so this may be as good as you are going to get.

Works as well as a powered antenna. Review by Mike

I bought this to use with a PC USB TV tuner card as the included OEM antenna hardly pulled in any channels. This antenna brings in all the Over-The-Air channels from Sacramento, about 30 miles from me, every bit as well as a powered RCA antenna I have on another TV. It has a pretty strong magnetic base for sticking it to window frames, etc, so watch out for any data disks or hard drives around this antenna. When my satellite TV went out, I hooked it into the coax cable, stuck it to the dish and watched OTA channels in HD throughout the house until my replacement box came. It also has the advantage of being small enough to fit easily in my laptop bag. All in all, a great little antenna. (Posted on 18/11/2012)

Purchased antenna for an apartment in NYC area, wanted to set up a small Digital TV in the kitchen. Antenna has a low profile (small size) but gives good reception. I did not sue magentic base, but I did purchase this item also based on the flexibility should I need it. I did not regret this buy. (Posted on 13/11/2012)

HI. I bought a portable TV to take outside. It came with an antenna but I didn't get many stations with the original antenna. Bought this antenna and it works much better. (Posted on 21/10/2012)

This antenna is small but mighty. It has much better reception if you stick it on something metal as the magnetic bottom helps. I had it on the stand beside the tv, not so great reception, then I stuck it to the magnetic lamp base and it was awesome. (Posted on 02/07/2012)
