Winegard sets the Platinum standard for VHF/UHF antennae. The Platinum HD8200 has 69 elements (34 VHF and 35 UHF) for a stunning picture. Before you can watch TV, you have to install the antenna, and Winegard makes it easy. The 75 ohm downlead coupler snaps into place eliminating the need for matching transformer with coax cable.

The antenna's steel hardware is zinc plated for corrosion resistance. All the connections are covered with polyethylene boots to keep the weather out. Double boom braces and a high impact ABS girder design also work to increase the antenna's durability. This will be the last antenna you need to buy.

2 out of 5 eggsVery uneven gain across the VHF/UHF channels, a disappointment

Pros: Easy to put together and put on a mast.

Cons: (1) I live in a fringe area and got this to replace an aging Radio Shack medium gain broadband antenna, as specs and reviews indicated it should perform much better; however, this Winegard's signal gain across TV channels 2-67 was very uneven and often below that of the old RS antenna: on the 22 available TV stations here, this HD8200 performed worse on 10 of them, about the same on 9, and maybe slightly better on 3.
(2) Pointing is more critical, making a rotator a necessity.
(3) The assembly manual is poorly written & illustrated, and incomplete, enough to cause problems for those not experienced with putting up TV antennas.
(4) Finally I took it down and put the old antenna back up. Much better.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this antenna for those in fringe areas, especially after the change to digital TV broadcasting in February 2009.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent antenna

Pros: This is a great antenna for those on the fringe. I live about 60 miles from St. Louis, and could only get a consistently good signal on a couple of digital channels with my old antenna. With this antenna, I get a perfect signal on all of the St. Louis digital stations.

Cons: None for me. Size and weight may be an issue for some -- it's 15 feet long!

Other Thoughts: Despite the options NewEgg gives you, this item will be shipped via AIT (truck freight) rather than UPS or FedEx. The reason being the box is too long for UPS/FedEx. And odds are, it will be damaged in shipping. Rather than packing the antenna, NewEgg slaps a label on its flimsy retail cardboard box which includes no packing material or reinforcement. The first one I ordered was severely damaged in shipment and I refused to accept delivery. NewEgg was very slow to refund my money. The second one was slightly damaged -- two of the VHF elements were bent -- and I decided to keep it rather than fight with them again.
