Did You Know?

There are many advantages to choosing an HDTV outdoor antenna over an indoor antenna. An outdoor antenna will have fewer obstructions and less interference (noise) from other electronic devices in your home. A single outdoor antenna can service more than one television at a time. If your home had satellite or cable service, the coaxial cable needed to send the antenna's signal to all your TVs is already installed.


Set Up is Easy

Locate the broadcast towers serving your area at Place outdoors with the best possible line of sight to the broadcast towers for the best results. Connect one end of a coaxial cable to the antenna and the other end to your TV. Scan for the available channels using your TV's remote control. Try several locations to find the best reception and remember to scan for channels in each location. Enjoy all your favorite local and network shows in full HD 1080 where available.




Reduce Your Monthly TV Bill to $0

You can now experience HDTV in the highest quality picture and sound available. Over-the-air broadcasts are transmitted in crystal-clear, full HD 1080; far less compressed than what cable and satellite offer. Many local broadcasts are digitally aired in 5.1 Surround Sound, giving you the ultimate soundstage for watching live television. With a digital TV antenna you can receive free, local news, weather, kid's shows, sports, cooking, shopping, and sitcoms from networks like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW, ION, and much more, with no cost or contracts. Broadcast TV won't be interrupted from service dropouts. Quick fact: local sports are broadcast free over-the-air. You just need an antenna!


Lifetime Warranty

The Element HDTV antenna series comes with a lifetime warranty on parts to assure you of their superior build quality and durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great antenna in the trees I did not install it right away, but when I did, customer Service was very helpful. There was previously satellite TV service and a big spilter. I bought the Juice Amplifier too. I highly recommend getting the Juice as well. With their help I worked through the maze of cables and I now have emergency TV where I need it. Tornado season is not to be taken lightly and having this antenna (below tree top level even) has been a blessing. I mounted it to the old satellite mast with the extention it comes with and used the existing cable. With the Juice, our picture is clear that we see where the weather man cut himself shaving. If you purchase this combination, you won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant free TV! Service is great here. Told support where I lived and they worked out that this antenna would be the best for me. I'm about 30 miles due north of Jacksonville, FL. I placed it in my attic where the signal has to come through 1/2" OSB and Hardy board on the gable end of the house. I used a compass to align the antenna in the direction of the majority of the stations I wanted to receive. I have about a 70' run of coax cable from the antenna to the TV with one connector in the run. Connected to the TV and instantly received 41 channels. All look good and the HD comes in just fine. Glad I bought this antenna. As others have said, "it works."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This antenna works Like the title says it just plain works. Construction wise its very close to commercial grade. I have it mounted on top of a rotor which I already had, and scanned for channels in 4 directions. Living in the sticks of Iowa I came up with 35 channels, including 1 station that is over 80 miles to the north in Minnesota. to say that I am pleased would be a gross understatement. I do use a 12db amp at the tv end of the lead in cable beneath the tv. Dont know if I really need it or not, already had the amp. I have the antenna at about 23 feet high.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent for 40 miles or less - not a long ranger I thought the AD Element antenna would do much better at my location on Hamilton mountain. Previously I had a 91XG paired with a long VHF yagi, and an AD pre-amp. This worked well for a couple years, but then my weaker powered channels starting to fade away. I lost a director on the 91XG, a couple got bent, the reflector needed a zip tie and there is rust in some spots; and then it seemed my CPA-19 pre-amp was losing power - my weaker channels became less watchable. So then I got the AD Juice pre-amp and it did improve things a bit, but about 6 months in, it died, so now I was not getting any channels. Fortunately I have a backup - DB4e at about 35 feet on the tower and an inside drop amp. For being a little lower on the tower, this antenna is impressive for UHF. It gets me all the channels the 91XG was getting in its prime, except for 2, WNYO and WUTV. WNYO is -4 NM 75 miles away. With the DB4e, WNYO is consistent at night, and comes in most times during the day. The other channel WUTV is +10 NM 47 miles on RF 14, while a very close channel (10 degrees north of RF 14) is on RF 15 with +73 NM/3 miles away. Usually at night WUTV will come in with the DB4e, but pixelate during the day; I know RF 15 is causing trouble for WUTV. But as mentioned, the 91XG was getting WUTV until things started to fade and then I thought I needed to simplify and not use a pre-amp and try an antenna with less gain so that RF 15 would cause less trouble; hence the switch to the AD Element with no pre-amp at 45 feet high and no obstructions. Results so far with the Element have been good on one hand, but disappointing for my situation/location, and maybe not too surprising consider the specs. For signals that are less than 40 miles away, the ELEMENT works very well for UHF and VHF, it almost acts like an omni-directional antenna. Even though it is aimed at the Buffalo towers (east), all the Toronto channels (north, 80 degree difference, 37 miles away) come in strong. Trying for signals beyond 40 miles is a different story. The Element’s performance drops off, maybe due to no pre-amp… , but even the other Buffalo channels that are very strong (e.g., WGRZ, WIVB, WKBW) and easily receivable with the DB4e, are much weaker or not received at all with the Element. It seems like the Element is a bust for getting channels beyond 40 miles. Maybe a pre-amp would help, but so far I have had 3 die out. The other thing with the Element is that the aiming seems to be way off to where the towers are. For example, with previous antennas, the aiming for Buffalo channels was what TV Fool said it should be – east, with the Element the aiming is about 45 degrees more south. Furthermore, it seems to be very directional for the distant signals (over 40 miles), off a little and the signal is gone. With the DB4e and the 91XG there really was no concern of directionality, aim east and all the Buffalo channels come in. So, overall I think the Element is great for UHF/VHF for signals 40 miles or less and it is very small/light, beyond that, consider something else. The DB4e is good for 60 – 70 miles and great for signals on the side not extremely far (less than 40 miles), while the 91XG goes a bit further straight on, and can get some channels from the sides but not as good as the DB4e, but it seems to wear out performance-wise over time. In doing it again, another 91XG or the DB8e without amplification is possible, but not too sure if the DB8e is more/less directional than the 91XG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing It was a easy installation for me personally. I decided to not use the Mast provided and set my own Mast up honestly setting up the pole was more of a challenge lol. It was up and running in 35min and, I had 6 new channels that my cheep Chinese eBay antenna could not pick up. I try to save money just like everybody else but sometimes to get what you want you have to pay for it. I honestly didn't expect to pick up channel 62 with this antenna but it comes in at 70 percent with the help of the juice amplifier. Which leads me to my next point if you buy this it's probably a good idea to buy the juice amplifier unless you're within 25 miles of the towers I'm picking up Towers 75 miles away with the juice amp and this antenna. I was extremely skeptical but I am definitely a believer antennas Direct did a great job I called they're callCenter and Benjamin was very helpful he told me exactly what I needed to get the outcome that I was ultimately looking for and best of all it worked. I don't typically do reviews but I did this time don't hesitate I love this thing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Antenna since I was a kid... Easy to install, I aimed it in the "general" direction of the Jacksonville Tower Farm, (49.61 miles away on a bearing of 145 degrees. (Google is great right?)), got 30 channels. I also have a tower 90 degrees to the left of the antenna, 22 miles away, (as it points towards Jax), and get those 4 channels too - probably through the coax - not necessarily the antenna. I also get a channel 40 miles away 180 degrees out from where I'm pointed. Huge storm, knocked out power, 2 TVs, 2 computers, and my antenna. AD sent a new one forthwith. Lifetime guarantee. Great service, great products, great value, great tech support. My neighbor saw it, and I've put one on his house with 4 TV's, and it works great. He and I both cut the cable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product Good quality product that has really improved my reception for my local channels. Am stunned at the quality and clarity of the picture as well as the sound. Mounted the antenna to my Direct TV base... very easy to do. Took some time to dial in the direction but not difficult. Customer service representative (Tom) took the time to guide me to the right antenna for my location, explained clearly why antennas that I was considering would not be good options. His advice was spot on, doubt I'll be returning to DTV or Cable.
