Types of Antennas

Amplified Indoor Antenna

  • Amplified HDTV reception up to 50 miles
  • Revolutionary Clear Circuit Technology provides ultra low noise figure – 1.0 dB
  • Receives more channels than unamplified antennas
  • Minimizes pixelation and dropouts
  • Extra long mini coax (18.5′) makes finding the ideal location easy
