Just on a whim, I took off the amplifier and amazingly, depending on the placement of the antenna, I got between 14 and 22 channels without an amplifier, This is in the 900 block of Wertz Ave. SW in Canton..Channels received included 17,23, 27, 39, 45, 47 and 49..A total of 29 channels if they all come in at the same time. Hoping with time some others come in..The antenna did pretty much what I hoped it would do. Relatively happy with it..Included is a screenshot of WKBN-27 Youngstown News as posted at 6:05 AM on an Insignia 19" TV in our living room. As of 6:30 It's still a solid picture..No pixellating at all..
I bought the Mohu Leaf Ultimate to try this thing out.
I already have the HBU-33 on my roof, but I wanted to see if this small indoor antenna would work on the bedroom TV and portable TVs I have. It actually does work great, but only outside. My house has aluminum siding, so I think that's the problem. The results with it placed outside are so much better, and well worth the money I paid for it. My location is Copley, and I can receive the following with this little antenna...
3 (17) WKYC, 5 (15) WEWS, 17 (49) WDLI, 19 (24) WOIO, 23 (23) WVPX, 25 (26) WVIZ, 27 (41) WKBN, 43 (28) WUAB, 47 (47) WRLM, 49 (50) WEAO, 55 (30) WBNX, and 61 (34) WQHS
One of the problems is that this cannot receive VHF where I live. So I cannot receive WJW 8 or WOIO 19 on VHF 10. I didn't really expect it to, but overall, it performs almost as well as my outdoor rooftop antenna.
