Product Description

Terk indoor amplified hd-tv uhf/vhf ant.

From the Manufacturer

The high-performance HDTVa amplified indoor HDTV antenna from Terk Technologies is designed to capture both UHF and VHF signals (channels 2 to 69) while extending the reception range for all local HDTV broadcasts. The HDTVa uses an ultra-low-noise, high-gain amplifier with Terk's exclusive Dual-Drive Amplifier technology for clear reception of both distant and close HDTV and DTV stations.

Terk HDTVa Cable
Integrated 75-ohm cable.
Enjoy Full-Resolution Broadcasts

Suitable for those living in city apartments as for those in suburban homes, the compact HDTVa lets viewers experience HDTV broadcasts in full resolution. Designed for total reception versatility, the HDTVa's high-gain antenna array can be oriented either horizontally or vertically within its mounting base to achieve optimum capture of off-air broadcasts.

The antenna is engineered to receive all local HDTV channels, with an operating bandwidth covering both the VHF (channels 2 to 13) and UHF (channels 14 to 69) frequency ranges. Its highly directional log periodic UHF and precision VHF elements are designed to receive HDTV broadcasts with maximum signal strength while rejecting all or most interference.

Boost Weak Signals

Set the amplifier to high-gain mode to compensate for signals that are too weak or might otherwise be bypassed for a stronger signals nearby.

Easy Installation

Simplifying your installation, the HDTVa uses Terk's Power Injector to derive power via its coaxial connecting cable. The result? One cable is all you have to connect, making it easy to install the HDTVa atop or near your television.

Great Modern Looks

As an added bonus, the HDTVa is as exceptional in appearance as it is in performance: its curved, tapering, polished-aluminum antenna elements are mounted in a slim base with a contoured front that visually complements the curve of the antenna elements.

Living in Downtown Montreal in a Second Floor of an Apartment building that doesn't have a balcony, nor does it face the 'South' to top that, towards nearby US States to target their Stations. This was a tough call, I was skeptical whether I should go for Terk HDTVa or Winegard SS-3000 - reading reviews from everywhere, watching video-reviews, took me atleast a week researching on which I should go for. I also consulted local tech columnists from CTV and CBC radio Montreal for their expert opinion for my situation and whilst it was positive, they were vary, stating, Downtown is a tricky business for gaining maximum signals, that too from an Indoor Antenna, but it isn't impossible. So I didn't know what to get from that. SS-3000 had all positive reviews, not one bad review to my surprise but there weren't that many reviews in total, whilst there were mixed reviews for Terk HDTVa but the reviews were in abundance. What drew me closer to SS-3000 at first was that many of the people who reviewed were people in apartment buildings and in similar positions. I had doubts and was confused and didn't know which one to opt for. In the end, I went with my gut feeling, keeping in mind the 'Range' for Terk (45m) as opposed to SS-3000 (30m) and it paid off. It arrived within 2 days (I chose Free Savers Shipping) and it came from Mississauga, ONT with Canada Post. From the time you order - it ships the following day, and for me it came the morning after shipment (today) - The packaging was very secure. Initially, I was worried, since it was my first time ordering online, thinking 'what if a part came missing, or if it was defective,' but the packaging was surprisingly safe with air-filled bags securing it.Read more ›

overall the experience is good! after 1.5 hours of fumbling with my tv and the antenna, i finally figured out how everything works. now i'm receiving 10 Digital over the air channels. I live in North York area of Toronto

some tips that might help the newbies who are doing this the first time
1) when you are inserting the antenna into the base, make sure the curve line is hidden. And yes. MAKE sure you are doing that! i didn't wanted to push too hard the first time because i was worried that i was going to break it.
2) use the auto programing search on your TV. I originally plugged in the antenna expecting the channels to show up magically. That doesn't happen because you will not receive signal on most of your channels
3) make sure you turn on antenna on the little black box

Very good. I got 12 channels in a second floor Vancouver apartment .

Unfortunately my apartment is very small and it took up a lot of space. I wished it could be hanged up side down from the ceiling.

A recommended buy.

I bought this antenna more as an experiment for a TV I bought in a bedroom. Located in Thornhill (Donn Mills and Steeles) and bedroom facing south I had the surprise to capture 18 channels, however some of them are duplicated (HD and SD) so in reality there are 14 but this happened if antenna was facing the window. When I placed the antenna on the dresser, facing the wall, I was able to capture only 7 channels (lost all Buffalo channels and some Canadians). Antenna orientation did not have to be exact, so rotating it with +/- 30 degrees did not make a difference. Anyhow, from my location, CN Tower and Buffalo are in line.
Here are the channels that I captured:
04 WIVB (CBS)
05 CBLT CBC)
07 WKBW (ABC)
09 CFTO (CTV)
17 WNED (PBS) 2 different programs on this channel
19 CICA (TVO)
23 WNLO (UPN)
25 CBLFT SRC)
29 WUTV (FOX)
41 CIII (Global)
47 CFMT (OMNI1)
57 CITY (CityTV)
69 CJMT (OMNI2)
As expected all digital programs you see perfect or not at all and HD is real 1080p (as opposed to HD channels received through cable or satellite).
If you turn off the amplifier some channels dissapear.
The coaxial cable is not too long so you cannot go too far from TV (need an extension).
These channels I captured in winter while in summer some additional channels may be added as reception increases in warm weather.
As a surprise for me, digital channels include programming info so you can see what it is on air and what will be in the next several hours.
The experiment was really good so I am thinking going for an aerial antenna and getting rid of cable once and for all.

I live in Montreal on the third floor of an appartment building in Rosemont with windows facing south and west. With a simple antenna, I could only get 4 channels. With the Terk antenna I get 9 with a perfect picture.

This is nothing spectacular. It does what it says its going to do. I got this a my first step in the cable cutting process to allow me access to local news and it does the trick and it does so in HD. Ill recover the cost with the savings from my first month of cutting

In Toronto's house, I used a RCA amplified antenna which got me,
only 4 channels, CBC, CTV, TVO and Sun's HDTV.

After I installed this Terk's HDTVA,
it gives me ALL 9 HD channels possible, including CityTV Omni1 Omni2 Global and CBC French.
I had to adjust the antenna direction to opposite of the CN Tower tough.

This antenna has an in-line amplifier.
When I turn the power off the amplifier, I lost some channels,
so make sure you to buy Terk HDTV"A" model,
Not Terk HDTV"i" model that has no amplifier.
