Before you connect the antenna, determine the best spot in your home for optimum reception. Visit www.antennaweb.org to see where your local broadcasts are coming from. Then, try as much as possible to avoid obstructions between these transmitters and your antenna. Because of its amplification and multi directional capabilities, the ANT1550 receives UHF, VHF, and local high-definition broadcasts, providing quality reception from most locations.
Note: The ANT1550 may work well sitting on your TV or other components. However, because electronic components can sometimes interfere with the antenna’s reception, you might notice an effect on the antenna’s performance. Likewise, placing the antenna on a metal surface may interfere with
reception. If the antenna isn't performing as well as expected, try moving it away from the component or placing it on another surface. Then, re-scan for channels on your TV or converter box.
Positioning the Antenna
After locating the optimal position for your antenna, choose from one of three options:
- Lay the ANT1550 flat The ANT1550 has raised feet on its bottom to prevent scratching of furniture. Make sure you place the antenna on a flat, level surface. Note: This is the position that usually gives optimal performance.
- Hang the ANT1550 The back of the ANT1550 antenna has two mounting holes that
can be used for hanging. Place both holes over screws inserted in your wall.
- Stand the ANT1550 upright The ANT1550 comes with a removable stand. Simply
place the antenna in the stand to prop the antenna in an upright position.
