4 of 5 Antenna Works Well December 10, 2020
Reviewer: Terry from Dade City, Fl  
This antenna works well, however, a couple of things could be improved.
The matching transformer attaches to terminals on the top side of the antenna in front of the fold-out reflector elements. This brings the leads too close to the reflector boom and antenna boom and may cause some loss of signal if care is not taken to keep them at least 1/2 inch from these parts.
The elements are made of very thin metal and bend / break easily. My antenna arrived damaged but rather than send it back, I fixed it. I'm kind of handy that way.
I live 35 miles from my local stations and, with a low-gain amplifier, I get all 5 bars on all local channels. I listen to a HD fm station 50 miles away and it comes in most times with no problems.
The antenna meets or exceeds advertised specs. Some companies rate their antennas as having unrealistic ranges but Channel Master is quite honest about their range ratings. This help consumers decide which antenna to purchase.
Good job Channel Master.

5 of 5 Great Quality Antenna December 10, 2020
Reviewer: MarkMI from Novi MI  
As soon as I opened the box I could tell this was a quality antenna. The construction of it looks like it will last through all weather conditions. The instruction video helped out in a quick set up. The only issue I had was there is a "S" bent hook to clip on the beam and hold the cable balun. It did not work to I had to modify it so it would CLIP on the main beam and to the balun, after that it worked great. I am happy with the reception the antenna provides me with twenty more stations than the RCA indoor antenna I had been using.
PS: The Channel Master support staff from sales to the call in help were great. I enjoy companies that support the customer from start to finish (very few of those still in business today).

5 of 5 Perfect antenna for our location! November 30, 2020
Reviewer: Terry from 14625  
I want to thank the staff at Channel Master for their assistance in selecting the correct antenna for our location, We live in what I call a hole in the ground with trees on the ridge, I difficult reception combination. I am now receiving more station than I expected with out the need for an amplifier. The antenna is actually a smaller  than I thought I might need. A perfect combination!
Thank You

5 of 5 Antenna and ChannelMaster Suport September 29, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Chicago  
The Advantage 45 antenna was an excellent choice for OTA in the Chicago Area.  CBS, channel 2 was difficult to receive and this choice was perfect.  The ChannelMaster support team was excellent in helping resolve OTA issues.

5 of 5 This antenna delivers as promised! August 19, 2020
Reviewer: Bob W. from New York  
I had an old Radio Shack antenna with rotor that was lost in a storm and replaced with one of those small so-called digital antennas. I was unable to receive some local Lo-VHF channels and lost others when a new house next door blocked some of my line of sight signals. I raised my antenna mast 3 feet and installed this Advantage 45 pointed for the best signal strength on my strongest channels. I now receive TV broadcasts from New Jersey and all of my local New York stations with excellent signal strength. Thanks to Channel Master's Tech Support for their perfect antenna recommendation.
