The Leaf Indoor HDTV Antenna from Mohu was designed to increase the range of over-the-air HDTV signals. It is optimized for both UHF and VHF stations but will provide better reception for UHF broadcasts.
The Leaf is recommended for customers who live within 35 miles (56 kilometers) of the broadcasting towers. Maximum receiving distance may vary due to differences in your home's construction or the geography of the surrounding area.
Lastly, in order for the Leaf to work properly, your TV needs to be digital ready. TV's labeled HD ready or HDTV monitors are not considered digital ready. Also, do not use the Leaf Plus outdoors. Both temperature and humidity will ruin the device from working properly.
- Performance of the Leaf
- The Leaf Antenna was created so you can receive free over-the-air broadcasts. It is designed by experienced antenna engineers who have been designing antennas for the US military for years (see GreenWave Scientific)
- Range of the Leaf Antenna
- The Leaf Antenna is recommended for customers who live within 35 miles (56 km) of the broadcasting towers. However, due to differences in geography and your home's construction, the maximum receiving distance may vary
- UHF and VHF Band Stations
- The Leaf is optimized for UHF stations, which comprises about 95% of the HDTV stations today. The Leaf will receive VHF stations but it will not be able to receive them from as far away as the UHF band stations
- Leaf Design
- Due to the fact that the majority of television antennas on the market tend to be an eye-sore, design aesthetics were a primary driver in the design of the Leaf Antenna. The antenna is black on one side and white on the other providing a variety of installation options
- Leaf Placement
- The Leaf Antenna is shipped to you with two white push pins and two black push pins. Pin the Leaf to the wall through the two holes at the top the antenna (do not make your own holes). To optimize performance, temporarily pin the Leaf to the wall in several different locations (performing a channel scan for each location) to determine where reception is best
