Anyone here have a Channel Master 3000A SMARTenna ???


If you do can you tell me how you like it, where you have it mounted, and how far away you get HDTV signals??


Thanks for all replies!

I have one, but it's not installed yet. I started a similar thread in this forum, or another one. Not much in the way of replies. I'm trying to go the indoor route for an HD antenna. The 3000 is about the only thing I could find that I could possibly mount outside without being seen. I could also possibly mount it in the attic of the unit next door. I dont have an attic. There are 'relationship' issues with that as well.


I did plug the 3000 in to my system last night just to see how it would pick up things. My HT setup is in the semi submerged 1st floor of my house. My living room sits in the foundation of the house and technically, I have no basement. With just plugging it in, in my living room, it picked up nothing! Zip, Nadda. I have an installer coming out next Tuesday to setup my HD dish, and I have told him I want to 'play' with a couple of different indoor/outdoor antenna setups for OTA HD. FWIW, I have a silver sensor antenna hooked up now in the living room with a radio shack amp. It works, just ok, not great, but it works. No really strong signals, but enough to lock on 2 HD OTA stations. In this same setup / environment, the 3000 didn't pick up any signal. I'll let you know next Tuesday how things go. I'm going to try to play with putting the Silver Sensor outside, and or the 3000. Hopefully, one of those 2 will give me better signals and more signals than what I have now.


Hope that helps
