The DB8 Antenna Receives Free Over-The-Air Digital and HD Programming with NO Monthly Cable or Satellite Fees!
The DB8 UHF Antenna is also capable of short range high VHF reception. The bowtie design of the DB8 uses triangular elements instead of rods to increase the bandwidth allowing it to cover the entire UHF band. Additionally, the mesh reflector of the bowtie is more efficient than a rod reflector, is lower in weight, and provides less wind resistance for greater performance and durability.
If you are in a rural area or you are trying to pull in signals from very far away, look no further than this DB8. This is without a doubt one of the most powerful bowtie antennas you can buy.
Intended for people at great distances from transmitters, the DB8 is our most powerful multi-directional HD TV antenna. In fact, its 15.8 dB gain makes it one of the most powerful multi-directional antennas available.
5 out of 5 stars by Scott C
I live about 35 miles from the city where the transmitters are located, with a few trees obstructing a clear shot from my roof. But since I was determined to eliminate our monthly cable bill and go with FREE instead, I looked at many different outdoor antennas and read dozens of reviews. I also found out signals in the air are 100% HD, whereas cable compresses the signal to around 70%. But you probably already know that if you're looking for an outdoor antenna...
Anyway, after weeks of research I decided to try the DB8. When we first cancelled cable, I was getting 16 channels using RCA's "best" amplified indoor antenna. After hooking up the DB8 on the roof and aiming it in the general direction of the city, I got 35 channels. I eventually added a Motorola Signal Booster to the line in order to get the local ABC affiliate that is a little further away, bringing the total to 36 channels.
Needless to say, I love this thing. Years ago we had the conventional old school "arrow" looking outdoor antenna. It pulled in about a dozen stations, half were all fuzzy. But with digital, it's all or nothing. Fuzzy won't cut it. So I'd highly recommend the DB8. It simply works better. That, and it looks cool, the neighbors probably think I'm contacting Mars, lol.
I also found out a few other things along the way, which may be helpful if you're new at this... As with most outdoor antennas, you'll need a few other things to hook it up:
