5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well, But I Nit

Pros: Very good reception. Much smaller than a standard Yagi and with better performance. Easy to assemble. And lets face it: this thing looks cool. I told my kids it was a Romulan disrupter that would instantly vaporize and Federation ships that violated the Neutral Zone in our back yard. They didn't get it.

Cons: Instructions. There was an instruction sheet in the package which was generically written to cover two antennas. Folks; printing the instruction sheet is not your biggest cost; you can do better.

The bigger problem is that there are instructions on the box that clearly show you opening up the receiver portion. DO NOT DO THIS! The 75 ohm connector is firmly attached to the case on one half, then the PCB that's attached to that is bolted to the other half. Opening it will destroy the PCB and you will either have to (a) RMA it or (b - what I did) solder jumper wires. There is no reason to open the receiver portion; just bolt it on to the last hole.

Other Thoughts: We got five inches of snow the first day I could have crawled up on my roof to install this. Because of the damage to the receiver, I was eager to test this unit. I mounted it to a telescope tripod about three feet above ground and pointed it in the general direction of Atlanta which was on the other side of a hill and several snow covered trees. There is no way I should have picked up a single channel. In fact, I was able to pick up six of the 12 available broadcast channels and received crystal clear HTDV.

This antenna is highly directional. All of my stations are within 10 degrees. If you live in a city, you won't need the high gain of this antenna, but you will need a multi directional array.

The antenna elements are directional; watch for the arrows on the clips. And yes, the last two elements are supposed to be closer. This antenna is nose heavy, so you'll need a strong attachment point.
