FlatWave Amped Indoor HDTV Antenna
The Winegard FlatWave Amped Indoor HDTV Antenna's enhanced dual band antenna features a state-of-the-art, ultra-low-noise preamplifier embedded directly at the elements, where 100% of the signal is amplified. The innovative USB power supply provides energy savings by only consuming power while the TV is powered on.
Long Range Amplified Indoor Antenna
The FlatWave Amped offers an extended reception range of up to 50 miles--ideal for smaller communities, or areas where conventional antennas have trouble getting a signal. The revolutionary Clear Circuit technology provides an incredibly low-noise figure of only 1.0dB, letting you receive more channels and minimizing pixelization and dropouts. Dual band reception means you don't miss out on channels that UHF-only antennas can't pick up. Install it in minutes and say goodbye to big monthly cable bills.
Free HDTV Channels
90% of the most-watched TV shows are available on local stations. Why pay for the same programming you can get for free and in high definition with the FlatWave? Many local stations now broadcast in crystal-clear high definition, and also broadcast audio in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, giving you the ultimate home theatre experience--but with no monthly bills. No monthly fees, no contract, no installation fees, no credit checks and no cancellation fees. You can save an average of $1,000 per year by switching to FlatWave.
Unbelievably Razor Thin
The FlatWave is less than 2/100 of an inch thick (0.43mm). You won't believe how thin the FlatWave antenna is. Designed with black on one side and white on the other, the FlatWave can be flipped to display the side that best suits your home decor.
Quick and Easy Setup
A four-step setup process gets you watching your favorite shows in minutes, with no assembly and no tools.
1. Place the antenna in the desired location.
2. Connect the coax cable coming from antenna to the "Antenna In" coax port on your TV.
3. Plug in the amplifier using the supplied mini USB power plug or 110V adapter.
4. Run a channel scan on your TV.
Watch TV Your Way
The FlatWave is a perfect companion to an Apple TV, Boxee, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, or other streaming video and DVR devices. Combine a FlatWave antenna with your favorite streaming device and get live and on-demand programming with no monthly bills.
The FlatWave is still a great solution for your home if you don't wish to cancel your cable or satellite programming. Use the FlatWave in areas of your house or garage that are not connected to your cable or satellite system. Or, use the FlatWave for superior HD quality viewing and for additional programming that may not be available through cable or satellite. The FlatWave also works as a great back-up in situations where reception may be lost.
What Channels Does the FlatWave Amped Receive?
FlatWave antennas deliver free over-the-air programming to your television. While the channels in your area may vary, there are more channels being broadcast for free than ever before. In most areas you can receive your local ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS channels as well as new "digital subchannels" that broadcast 24 hour news, weather, kids programming, and your favorite syndicated shows. This includes 90% of the most watched television shows including programs such as NBC Sunday Night Football, NCIS, Dancing With The Stars, 60 Minutes and more.

Generally speaking both units out of the box are similar, however the Winegard's "thin" coax is nice for tucking the cable away under a baseboard.
The WInegard unit generally speaking feels a bit more stiff yet thinner than the Leaf, and in direct sunlight seemingly warmed up a lot quicker.
My advice to users of either is to opt for the black side facing in if you are opting for a window mount.
The double sided tape that came with the Winegard is much more of a pain if you plan to reposition and largely becomes useless after a move or two, I would suggest grabbing a package of double sided foam squares along with the unit. The Leaf came with Velcro and some pins which have seemingly held up after about a half dozen repositions.
In terms of the performance itself;
In ideal conditions in West Toronto I can secure 23 channels in an optimal scan, yet with the WInegard placed in the exact same position it was able to secure 21 channels with the two lost being the channels that seemingly had towers the furthest distance away (Fox & Some sort of Non-Weather Channel Weather Channel).
Either unit still performed far better than any unpowered unit or the Mohu Curve.
For the price difference its not a bad alternative;
Make sure you try placing this at multiple areas in your house/apt to check for where you are getting maximum reception. I was holding it like a kite moving around with it (yeah, the wire is pretty long!!) as I scanned to see where I get maximum channels! The adhesive strips are pretty neat too!
It is great, but need be careful the mini cable.Be sure you bought the right on--DEC 18th /2013
Ok, I do not want return it so I went the Canadian tire to see if there is any transfer cable, Lucky I found one named Coax Cable extension adapter,and it helps me connect TV and antenna and finally I get 11 channels.. YA~~, suggest you guys buy coax cable extension adapter that will help you get long enough cable and found a good position for the signal. Dec19/2013
This FlatWave antenna from Winegard is not cheap and my suggestion is to first run the TVFool analysis for your location. If no channels are printed on a green background then an indoor antenna is not the way to go. If you have some channels on a green background the next step is to borrow an indoor antenna (old bunny ears) and try. If you can receive some UHF signals with the bunny ears then you are in a good spot and you may consider this antenna.
In free space this is one of the better non amplified indoor antennas out there - especially in the UHF band, but it also performs well in the VHF-HI band. It looks good and is well made. The best place to mount any indoor antenna is right against a window facing the transmitting towers and this antenna is ideally constructed for that purpose. If that is not an option you may also have success mounting it on a wall.Read more ›
