Summary: Power injector failed after 7 months
I disagree with the consideration here that the Winegard is the best indoor antenna. The power injector, which amounts to nothing but a glorified splitter, failed on me after having the antenna for seven months. Unfortunately, the antenna doesnt work unless its able to obtain power. The antenna only had a 90 day warranty. I contacted Winegard, who informed me that I could buy another power injector for $25. WTF!!!! The entire antenna itself cost $48 when I bought it and now is running for around $42. What happens if the power injector goes out on me again after the warranty expires? I decided to cut my losses and buy the Terk HDTVa, which has a one year warranty. Contacted Winegard again and told them I was posting this review and buying a different antenna, and I received a rather nonchalent response. Until the antenna stopped working, it was fine. Reception was adequate. However, the unit is pretty large, and I had trouble finding a place to set it. Still, given the risk of failure and Winegards lack of commitment to stand behind their product, I strongly suggest avoiding this antenna. Once I received the Terk HDTVa, I hooked it up and noticed much better performance. I pulled in several more channels including distant ones and didnt have to play around with it as much. Stay away from Winegard!

Summary: Went from 17 channels to 1 channel with this antenna!!
This thing is very long and very ugly and it pulls in next to nothing for channels! Gets a good rating on this site,its a pure piece of JUNK!! I wanted to update my old Radio Shack amplified rabbit ear type antenna with something that I was hoping I did not have to adjust all the time.Saw the review on this site and thought Id give this antenna a try,bottom line,,glad I bought it from WalMart as its going back today!!I could get 17 channels with the old antenna and after the auto scan from my TV with this antenna hooked up,,I got 1 channel!!

Summary: Great in Philadelphia
I use to live next to a Commuter rail line that constantly created interference plus I was surrounded by tall buildings. The only way to get television was cable. I became Netfix biggest fan. Plus I could not bring myself to pay for cable. Then I read about the Winegard took a chance and ordered. For the first time I could watch the local channels without any issues. I move about three ago to a new space. My new presented me with a new issues. NO SIGNAL. One I got the Winegard set pulls in 50 channels in perfect HD. Just reasonably I move the to another location picked a few more channel. I highly recommend this antenna.

Summary: Good Antenna for Los Angeles Area
After trying many brands including RCA,TREK, and Antenna Direct this antenna is a winner. All of the transmitting towers in Los Angeles are on top of Mt Wilson. Point this baby at the mountain and you should be good to go. I am 27 miles from the tower and get channels 2,4,5,9,11, PBS,ION and many others. We do not get 7 as they have a very very weak transmitter. Still learning...but this one works for us. Antenna Direct worked well but was UHF only. I recommend this fine product after reading endless geeky web postings and learning a lot about broadcast HDTV.

Summary: What a great anetnna
Before I bought this antenna, I was one who bought antennas from Walmart and Radio Shack and would have to move the antenna around all day long to get channels. So when I looked at this site and saw the recommendations for this antenna I purchased it. Wow! I cannot believe how much stronger the channels come in. It is outstanding; especially for the price. For my setup, I could not ask for anything more. It gets all of my vhf and uhf channels without a problem. It even gets channels in from Boston.
