Absolutely Great Antenna, great reception!! I'm 40 miles from the closest TV towers. I'm getting an Extrodinary amount of channels! 10 times more than when I had Cable TV. Not to mentiion how CLEAR AND BEAUTIFUL the TV picture is, much, much better than Verizon Cable TV! I'm getting channels some 100's of miles away!! I can't say how HAPPY I am for Finally getting Rid of my Cable TV!
I have to give Kudos to "AntennaMan" for recommending this Antenna.
My only complaint is that when you go to the Channel Master Advantage 45, there's another Link for ""Recommended Alternative: Pro-Model Antenna"". The Reviews on Amazon and "AntennaMan" state that the Pro-Model is NOT as good as the Advantage 45.

Quality antenna provides good value

I selected the Advantage 45 because our market's broadcasters' transmitters are within 2 degrees of azimuth and only 22 miles distant. I also purchased an Attic Antenna Mount since I would be installing it in my attic. Easy to open, mount, and align. I would be more than willing to mount outdoors (except for the hassle from our HOA) based on its quality construction. There is approximately 40 feet of cable between the antenna and my TV. I scanned for channels and it detected 98. I flipped through them all. Crystal clear picture and signal strength over 90%. I would recommend this Antenna and other Advantage models based on their quality construction and good value.

Better than expect

I have to say I am picking more channels at better quality than I expected. The antenna is large. Good build quality easy to assemble. And despite the large size was fairly easy to get into the attic. Definitely recommend.

Great Antenna but be careful with the wing nuts

The antenna is simple to open and assemble and does a great job of bringing in the TV signal. But beware, there is an Achilles heel. The antenna matching transformer attaches to the antenna via 2 wing nuts. You receive 2 and only 2 wing nuts in the package. Any idea how easy it to lose one of those while you are crawling around in an attic full of insulation?

Once lost, there is no designation of the size or tightening ratio of the wing nuts. A trip to Home depot and I could not find any type of replacement. We now I have the whole thing held together with duct tape until replacements can be located. Can’t there be a spare wing nut included in the package? Can’t Channel master simply give out the specs on the stinking wing nuts to allow for replacement?

Perfect Antenna

Assembled the antenna, mounted it, pointed in the right direction and presto, worked perfectly. Easy assembly.
