Winegard FL5500A FlatWave Amped HDTV Indoor Antenna
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Not worth the $ 07/11/2014

This review is from: Winegard FL5500A FlatWave Amped HDTV Indoor Antenna

Pros: Easy to hide

Cons: I have an old, beat-up pair of rabbit ears from a 30 year old TV. I was going to throw it out until we decided to cut the cord and stream/pull signal OTA. It had been sitting out in the rain and was all bent up. This antenna performs worse than those old rabbit ears. No matter where I put it, how I hook up the amplifier, it just does not pull in signal. It makes me wonder if the coax isn't broken somewhere, it's that bad.

I have line of sight to two transmitters 14 miles away and this is unable to pull them in. I know where I live I'm only going to get 5 or so channels, and this antenna just cannot do it. I hooked the old rabbit ears back up and while it's ugly, at least it works.
