        Comments about Terk Technologies FDTVO Omni-Directional Amplified Flat Outdoor Antenna:

        The directions were well done. Took down "the dish" and bought a 10 ft piece of metal conduit (1 and 1/4 in) - cut off 30 in and used some black pvc (about 5 in) to fit in "the dish" support tube. Assembled the antenna and attached it to pole, put the pole in the pvc (with slits cut in both sides) oriented it in the direction we hoped would work and came inside took finish the job. Works great!

          Comments about Terk Technologies FDTVO Omni-Directional Amplified Flat Outdoor Antenna:

          Currently I am using the antenna indoors in North San Diego County and get crystal clear reception for all local stations except one (channel 6) whose transmitter is in Tijuana - about 50 miles away. I do not think it is the distance since I receive three Los Angeles stations whose transmitters are also in the Mexican Border area if I rotate the antenna by 10 degrees.

          The antenna is not omni directional which is why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5. I called Terk and spoke to support about the bandwidth coverage and told the rep the model and the first thing he said is that all antennas are directional before I even asked my question.

          When I get a second HD TV I will move the antenna to the roof so I can use the coax distribution system to all rooms in the house and I expect great reception.

          Product appears well made and is easy to attache to a wood beam on the roof - even includes a rubber cover for the coax cable connection at the antenna

            TERK is a division of Audiovox. I owned both the internal and this model so I have compared both. The internal one can pick up about 23-26 channels. The external one about 40. I pick up stations within about a 80 mile radius with the external. Beware of the sci-fi looking generic antennas because they were worthless. This one is the best you will get and it is reasonably priced.

              I installed this unit on the gable end of the house. Took down a 15ftx6ft off the roof. This unit works better than the big eye sore!!!

                My neigborhood doesn't allow the outdoor atenna. I paid $10 a month to get the local channels from my cable company. I bought the antenna and install it inside the attic 11 feet high from the ground. It works like a champ. I get all the channels with the same digital quality of the cable company for my 5 bed rooms and 1 family room

                  I read many reviews on the product before purchasing it to determine weather or not it would soot my needs. But to my surprise, when i tested the antenna it didn't work at all. I tried every possible configuration, but nothing seemed to work. I am not sure why i had great difficult with this product, i may have just received one that was defective. I hope others have better luck with it.
