This is an excellent product. It pulls in distant stations, and the installation instructions were very clear.

Good reception in general, but for my area really needed the bigger model which was not available at the time. The next model has the capacity to pull farther stations than this one, but it works alright if you use the channels it can pull.

The channel master 2020 is all that is advertised. I installed it in my attic, pointed in the direction of the towers, scanned for channels. They were all there clear as a bell. No muss no fuss.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Channel Master Digital Advantage 100 (Model CM-2020) is a directional (yagi), line-of-sight outdoor TV antenna that receives high definition and digital signals up to 100 miles away. With a total of 41 elements, it is engineered to receive high quality UHF/VHF high band frequencies. It is classified as a large directional antenna by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA).

Reception Range: This antenna receives only VHF channels 7-13 (VHF high band) and UHF channels 14-51. It does not receive VHF channels 2-6 (VHF low band). To receive channels 2-6, an oversized antenna is required. The reception range and average gain for this antenna are as follows:

  • VHF Channels (7-13):
    • Reception Range: 100 miles
    • Average Gain: 7.5dB
  • UHF Channels (14-51):
    • Reception Range: 100 miles
    • Average Gain: 9.4dB
Note: All distances are approximate, actual performance depends on too many variables to predict accurately.

Mounting: It can be mounted on a roof, wall, chimney, in an attic, or on a tripod. The manufacturer's suggested height limit is 10 feet above the rooftop.

Turning Radius: Model CM-2020 has a 6' turning radius. If using an antenna rotor, you must make sure there are no obstructions around the antenna mast that would interfere with the antenna's rotation.

Connections: The included 75-ohm matching transformer is connected to the antenna tap-off points using the included wing nuts. The other end of the transformer has a female F-type connector. The included waterproof rubber weather boot should be installed over the cable connection to guard against corrosion.

Note: Coax cable is not provided; RG-6 is recommended.

Grounding: The antenna and mast should be properly grounded. Grounding provides lightning protection for the antenna and your TV set. A #8 or larger aluminum or copper wire connected between the antenna and grounding rod should be used.

I bought this antenna after our previous antenna got wrecked when a large branch came down during a storm and broke the antenna in half. The Channel Master CM-2020 is pretty easy to assemble and it pulls in a lot of channels. You just need to mount it on a mast and find out what direction to point it in. It helps to have someone looking at your TV and reporting back to you as you adjust the direction the antenna is pointing, so that you can receive the maximum number of channels. (Luckily I don't need a rotor to maximize my number of channels received.)

I'am not from South Florida but I bought the mentioned products and work fine. It's me get tv coverage after the Maria Hurricane in PR. The antenna and my own power source kept me inform!

[ ELIOUTT  Apr 24, 2019 ]

I purchased mine for PR and it works very well even having interferences from the mountains. By experience, get the biggest one you can get. It will have the best receptions compared to smaller units.
[ Ramon  Apr 24, 2019 ]
Q
Can two of these antennas be coupled together to pick up transponders in different directions?
[ Dean  Mar 25, 2019 ]

A
Yes, .... that's what I did to pick up two more channels there is another 2 in Tulsa that I have to rotate the antenna to receiveEnter
[ ELIOUTT  Mar 25, 2019 ]
A
Electrically I think it would create conflicts and interferences, but it is a good question for an electrical engineer to confirm.
[ Ramon  Mar 25, 2019 ]

[ CHARLES J  Jul 23, 2015 ]
