Anyone have any opinion in this antenna, or would i be better off with a Channel Master 42xx.

I HIGHLY recomend the GS-2000!!

I recieve 19 OTA channels from as far away as 200 miles.

Atlanta is 65 miles away and I get all the HDTV channels with 80% to 90% strength and never a drop out.

I'm located within 18 miles from the Boston area DTV towers and have had good success with the 2000. Bear in mind however, that it's a bi-directional design and as such is likely to work poorly if you're trying to pull in signals from a variety of directions unless you plan on using a rotator.

Yes. The GS2000 uses an outboard preamp which can be mounted anywhere along the coax run (close to TV or close to antenna).


There is a non-amplified version (GS1000 IIRC) which does not have a preamp but has a much shorter "range".
