I purchased this small, cheap antenna to hopefully be able to pick up a few local channels in my area. We recently canceled our Dish Network Satellite service due to the very high price increases, and to the fact that half the time it wouldn't even pick up the satellites due to a raindrop, snow, or high wind. It seems that it stayed OFF more than ON, and had continually gotten worse over the past years or so years.
Anyway, although we had turned to watching Internet Television, like NetFlix, I like to watch the local channels occasionally, so I came across this antenna. I followed the instructions, hooked it up, searched for channels, but it would not pick up ANYTHING, unless you like to listen to static on a fuzzy screen, LOL. I unhooked it, hooked it to another TV, tried again, and nothing.
Maybe mine is defective? I mean, it looks like it's only three pieces of moving plastic hooked together by a small silver screw, get real, what is suppose to pick up the channels? The silver screw? Please don't waste your money.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
