I receive 13 channels. About 6 are poor viewing and sound, distorted. About 4 are Spanish channels. (I don't speak Spanish). That leaves me with 3 channels in which one is a shopping channel. So it's either old western or game show channel. I'm sure it helps if you live in a home with lots of land and few obstacles like other houses but for me, it's not a good product.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
