From a basic standpoint, yes it is legitimate and it will work. How well it will work really depends on a number of things. it depends on where in your house you place it, how far you are from the transmitters and what your house is made from. The structure can interfere with reception.
As a general rule, outside is better than inside for over the air digital reception. Higher is also better, so place any antenna as far up on your house as you can outside, next go to the attic space if you can;t mount it outside. And even if you are in a condo or HOA , they have to allow you to mount a TV antenna on your house outside under FCC regulations.

Well what your problem is the antenna is not secured well enough to the roof. You really only have a couple options, you can secure the antenna better or just live with the fact that when it is windy your channels will be fuzzy.

Is Clear-Cast TV micro antenna for free TV access a legitimate thing?


The advent of HD TV has allowed for a new round of hucksterism to occur in the TV antenna industry. The televison channel spectrum is the same as it always was but the signal modulation scheme employed now is "digital", which is for the better. Signal propagation is the same as it was and it is not necessary to buy a "digital" TV antenna unless you fidn it necessary to receive TV channels that have sprung up from new directions. VHF and UHF TV signals travel in straight lines and are the strongest when your receving antenna is "aimed" at the transmitter for that channel. Since transmitters are lcoarted all over the poalce, you can eoither use a mechanical antrenna rotator to position the antenna to aim the transmitter of choi ce or use multiple antennas aimed in various directions.

Genrally speaking, the "cheaper" antennas have fewer elements and are thereby less critical to aim. They have a broader beamwidth, so-to-speak, provideing less "gain" in a specific direction in favor or a larger average gain over a broader "angular displacement.

Digital TV signals are not prone to "ghosting" so an array of cheap antennas aimed in several directions will suffice to capture the digital TV signals in your local area. Amplifed antennas are poor substitutes for "real" (passive) antennas placed in attics or as high as possible outside. TV signals are blocked or absorbed by buildings, trees, and such and the signal intensity can vary with the weather and even when leaves are on the trees and when they are not. All your digital TV requires is enough signal in order to work. A small amplified antenna sitting atop your TV may work fine though the signasl is barely above the minimum threshold. When the weather grow wetter, that singal may be beleow threshold and you won't get that particular channel until there is less moisture in the air!
The same is ture, of course, for an antenna placed high up on the roof, but the odds are far better that it will work so much better than the tiny amplified antenna on the top of the television simply becaeu the TV suingal inside the house, at lower elevation, will be inherently weaker to begin with.

Hope this helps you decide.

Need to know how to change and setup for use of antenna


Purchase your UHF/VHF antenna. The antenna can also be purchased at most electronic and retail stores. Consult your list from Step 1 and see how powerfulicon1.png the over-the-air signals are for your specific address. Purchase your antenna based on the broadcasting power you need to receive a clear picture on your TV. You might be able to get away with an indoor antenna if your signal strength is strong enough. If not, you'll need to purchase an outdoor antenna.

  • 4 Install your antenna (or have it done professionally) according to the building codes of your area. If you must use an outdoor antenna, it is a good ideaicon1.png to have the antenna professionally installed. This ensures that it is properly grounded on your roof, not too close to electrical wiring and stable during inclement weather.
  • 5 Hook the converter box up to your television using the cable that came with it (F Cable). Hook your antenna up to the converter Box. Turn on your TV and converter box. Tune your TV to channel 3 and press "Scan" on the digital convert box. Allow the box to scan for your available channels.
  • 6 View your picture and adjust your antenna accordingly for the clearest over-the-air feed. You should only need to make adjustments once. If you are having a difficult time getting a clear picture, use a signal strength indicator to see where you receive the most powerful signal.

    Hello
    You heard is correct. Your roof antenna can be connected to your TV, after connecting it to a balancing coil adapter, usually called 'Balun Adapter" which converts the impedence from 300 to 75 Ohms. It can be bought for most of the electronic shops all around. Connect the antenna wire to it and then plug it to your TV antenna in socket. The stations will be very clear, and well defined. You may have to turn the roof top antenna towards the direction of the transmitting tower to get a well defined, ghost free image. OK.

    Misubishi warrior 2 intermitant pic freezes 1 second or less


    Hello frogman,

    The freezing of the picture denotes a loss of signal on a digital (Having a ATSC tuner) TV. If your TV is not digital (Having a ATSC tuner) then it is the device that you have connected to the TV (Cable Set-top Box, DTV Tuner, etc). In the likelihood that it is your TV I would suggest getting a better antenna first if that does not fix the problem you may have a tuner problem. However lets not look at it that way first. What we need to do is to determine if it is the TV of whatever you have connected to the TV.
    First unhook the connection you have from the cable to your F connector of the TV (you should see snow or a blank screen) connect a antenna to the F connector of the TV, do you see a snowy picture or a clear sharp picture (snowy= NTSC tuner, clear-sharp= ATSC tuner). If the tuner is NTSC then check you cable device and the connection between your TV and the device and the cabling between the device and the wall. If the Tuner is ATSC then you will have to check all of your connections, and finally if the tuner is bad it has to be replaced by a qualified Tv repair shop.

    I hope this helps,

    Thank you,
