1 out of 5 eggsBad! luck with this

Pros: It "looks" like it should work.

Cons: I looked like it had been repackeged, returned from someone else
Weak gain right from the start. no better than a plain diapole..
Died, no signal, no light, after one week
I put it in a hard to reach location.

Other Thoughts: In well over ten years of shopping at Newegg this is the worst item that I've ever purchased!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little antenna

Pros: Works great,

Cons: The instructions should state the size of pipe is required for the mount.

Other Thoughts: I stripped the 3/4" mount pipe to an old satellite mount.

3 out of 5 eggsoutdoor antenna

Pros: Item worked as advertized Picked up extra channel

Cons: Did not come with all hardware needed. Rotates 1 way at a time, the buttons should allow 1 forward and 1 backward when close to tuning. Has to finish 360 in 1 direction then work back. Hard to fine tune.

5 out of 5 eggsworks really well

Pros: It picks up a lot more stations than the old antenna did. The rotation feature works but didn't need it because all the all the trans. are in one location. Very fast shipping.

Cons: none as of yet.
