Doesn’t pick up channels that are even 20 miles away 07/28/2014
This review is from: Winegard FL5500A FlatWave Amped HDTV Indoor Antenna
If there was a station 10-15 miles away maybe it would pick it up just fine.
It does not pick up many channels. The channels that it does pick up, don't come in very well. The description says that in picks up channels up to 50 miles away, so I figured the stations that are no more than 35 miles away would come in just fine, but they don't. A local station (WTNH channel 8), which is no more than 20 miles away comes in a little, but it’s unwatchable unless you hold your hands on the antenna.
I have an apartment in Guilford, CT where there are only tiny hills and most of the stations are 35 miles away in Hartford, CT and less than 20 miles away in New Haven/Hamden, CT area.
