Good little antenna Review by lawanda

I have no complaints with this. Its nice and small. I hooked it to my TV and it works just as good as those big metal ones. It has a magnet to the bottom and I stuck it upside down on the top of some blinds behind the TV. Works great. Nice price! (Posted on 13/04/2014)

Purchased to use with a small TV that needs a convertor box. Picked up al the stations I receive with the antenna on the roof. And you can't beat the cost. Would buy again. (Posted on 26/05/2013)
AMAZING LITTLE THING Review by itsclose

I live 35 miles NW of Chicago in a somewhat hilly, semi-forested area, near the bottom of a hill. Since I am in transition to cutting the cable company money drain, I am trying other alternatives. Not knowing any better yet, I ordered this antenna to go with an analog TV and a Zenith DTT9901 Digital Tuner Box to pick up local over-the-air (OTA) digital signals. In the first location I tried, which is a north-facing, 1st floor room surrounded in sheet rock, of course, this flimsy little thing did not work. No signals showed up at all. I next tried it in a south-facing, half-basement window, then stuck its magnetic base to the curtain rod, and lastly, tried it on top of the TV, with zilch results. My third try was the charm, when I stuck its magnetic base to the corner of the curtain rod in a north-facing, 2nd floor room. I received VHF NBC 5, ABC 7, and WGN (CW) 9, and 2 extra substations I wasn't even aware of), plus UHF 20 WYCC (Chicago City Colleges), 26 WCIU (with the MeTV/TheU/UToo/MeToo/THIS array), 32 WFLD (FOX Chicago), and three Spanish-speaking stations. So all told, I receive up to about 12 OTA digital channels at any given time, depending on the time of day, weather conditions, air traffic interference, and slight adjustments of the antenna position as needed. The short length of the antenna cable is sufficient for me, since the TV is near the curtain rod. This will definitely hold me until I get either an attic or roof-mounted antenna professionally installed and connected to my existing cable lines to cover every TV in the house. By the way, I purchased two other, larger, name-brand, highly-rated indoor antennas, and neither of them work in the sheet rock room, only one barely gets two intermittent channels in the half-basement, and on the 2nd floor, only one barely competes with THIS amazing little thing! It may or may not work for you, depending on its placement and all kinds of other variables, but it IS powerful enough for my stations 35 miles away. It is just a matter of whether the variables are working with you or against you. (Posted on 07/05/2013)

Read the reviews and they were right. Attached this to the metal wall mount bracket and it worked perfectly, for only $4! (Posted on 19/04/2013)
Good bang for the buck Review by Donald P. Lawson "Jperk"

I just received this digital antenna and have run it through a couple of quick tests - bottom line it works really well. It brings in about 18 stations in a room in my house where I got no reception with the stock antenna on my 7" Prisim LCD. Size doesn't have anything to do with this antenna - it is cut for the bandwidtch of the signal it is designed to received. It only has 1.08 db of gain so it's not a high gain antenna, but it isn't advertised as one. The listing just doesn't reference the gain of the antenna. It also appears to work better when placed in a horizontal position ( horizontal polarization ) than when in a vertical position. You must place it on something metal to establish a good ground plane. Without that it's no better than a wet noodle. I am finding a 10x14 cookie sheet, leaning against something on top of a book shelf works better than on the side of a file cabinet. For the price and size it's a 5 star buy. Note: I just verified that the August DTA240 High Gain Digital TV Aerial may be a very good option to consider. This antenna has a gain of 3.0 which means it will make the signal three times stronger than the DTA180. For a few dollars more this may be an excellent option in areas where stations may be further away or more difficult to receive. I have ordered this item and will report back next week after I have had an opportunity to test it. Followup Report: I have received and tested the DTA240 High Gain Digital TV Aerial. Testing this antenna in the same locations as the less expensive DTA180 it does not perform better. The DTA180 is a best buy - it's very small, fits nicely in a carry case and receives more stations than the DTA240 high gain antenna. In my opinion - save your money, go with the $5 antenna.

I like this antenna because it's small and easy to hide. Perfect for what I needed. And it's magnetic so it sticks to the back of the tv. (Posted on 10/01/2013)
The little antenna that can. Review by Rob Snyder

I was really disappointed when I received this antenna. It's tiny and just cheap looking. But that's far from the truth. While it is small and tiny, it works like a champ! It works a ton better than my old 'rabbit ear' antenna I had been using. Crystal clear signal, no drop outs, and a ton of channels. I highly recommend this little antenna. My use was stuck to the roof of a car. Careful use did not mar the paint of the car. (Posted on 20/12/2012)

This works great after you get a PAL-NTSB adapter from Radio Shack from another $5. Not a standard coaxial plug. (Posted on 09/01/2012)

Should've noticed that everything was listed in Metric, but this will not fit your television in the US. Also it is small, not very big at all. (Posted on 12/04/2011)
