Rating: 5 (excellent) Nickname: Otter911 Date: 2011-12-31
Summary: Got all the stations I expected and more.
Easy to assemble, easy to install, had all the hardware to install on the roof and great performance. The map said that I should have 30 channels and I got three extra channels. Unfortunately they are all religous or Spanish. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it is just not my cup of coffee. I am in West Seattle so all the stations I am interested in are in one direction and less than 10 miles away. Instructions were clear and lots of phone support it would appear since the instructions had lots of places where it said Call if you have problems. I had no need to use it so can not speak to the value of the phone support.

Summary: Very Good
I installed this antenna since I was having trouble getting a signal from the Sutro tower (especially ABC) only 26 miles away in San Francisco. This antenna immediately picked up the signal and the reception is great. It also picks up the other channels that are not in direct line of sight. This antenna works very well and this is without the pre-amp that I probably will get as well. Picked mine up at Fry\s for about $95. For sure install this outside as I started inside but when I moved it outside I picked up everything.

Summary: Works Here
I bought this antenna at Costco, and installed it on the roof. I live in Emeryville, and pointed the antenna West-Southwest (towards Sutro Tower in SF). It picks up several dozen Bay Area DTV stations, including those in SF, Oakland,San Jose, etc. The picture and audio quality is excellent, actually better than what I was getting through satellite (DirectTV), and this is FREE. I have broadband internet and a $9.95/mo Netflix subscription, which allows me to watch hundreds of movies on line (plus watch DVDs ordered through the mail...), so it\s goodbye to DirectTV.. YMMV with this antenna, but it seems to be well-constructed and well-tuned. The most important variable is your location (geography and location of broadcast towers). This antenna works EXTREMELY WELL here in the San Francisco Bay Area.


AntennasDirect C2 Review #3
Rating: 2 (poor) Nickname: hanse1pk Date: 2009-11-29
Summary: Good UHF but VHF not so well
I can pickup good UHF but not VHF. I am disappointed in their description on the box listing full DTV spectrum however on their website they list Best for UHF. If they had listed that on their box I would be fine with my purchase because I could be informed consumer. Have mounted outside on Roof and Directed towards the VHF stations and still get nothing. All my stations are in one major direction. The Antenna has very good appeal because of it\s size and shape. That why I had purchased. Good thing Best Buy will allow for return as I need both VHF and UHF in my area.


AntennasDirect C2 Review #4
Rating: 4 (good) Nickname: CapnBry Date: 2009-01-27
Summary: Great UHF no VHF
The product description boasts "Consistent gain through the entire DTV channel spectrum" but neglects the entire VHF-HI range. I live 25 miles NW from the transmitters across flat land and I get 11 major station (I don't count multiple stations on the same frequency twice) with no bit errors reported, but they are all in UHF. Unfortunately two networks (NBC and FOX) here are VHF-HI and I can barely get the signal meter to bump off of 0% with this antenna despite being the same distance to transmitter. I added a single dipole antenna (a "rabbit-ear") tuned to ~200MHz indoors via a signal combiner and get adequate reception. For reference the dipole got spotty signals on some of the UHF channels so the C2 holds a clear advantage in that spectrum.
