I just bought it and it works great! Contrary to the above poster, this antenna is solving a major problem I have in the Chicago area - yes, I'm close to the transmitters - I'm in a condo just north of Chicago and have had tons of trouble picking up all channels with just one indoor antenna. Channels 2.1 and 7.1 being on the VHF band are nortoriously difficult to pickup-- and when I have them tuned, I can barely get WGN and WLS which are the easiest of all to receive. My two different indoor antennas are admittedly cheapo's (one from Radio Shack, one from Target) - but they both had both a UHF loop and VHF poles - but no matter what I did, I couldn't get all channels at the same time. So, skeptically, I bought this Mohu antenna. It worked immmediately. I didn't have any problems with orientation and even stuck it to the wall behind my HDTV and it still worked - gets all channels at the same time including 2.1 and 7.1. It's working great for both VHF and UHF band and orientation isn't a problem as long is I keep it verticle. I am amazed!
