Okee-Dokee........the antenna is now on the roof!! Coming out of the box it took me about 15 or so minutes to put it together. A #2 Phillips and a Reed and Prince screw driver is all I needed. You don't even need to know how to read in order to get it right which might appeal to some of our less proficient college students of today. I did have to pick up an 18" X 1 1/2 " piece of PVC to serve as a pole, an anchor plate and a PVC adaptor for the plate at the hardware store. (about 5 beans). In my case I wanted it on the roof so I had to make a small deck to offset the rake of the roof so the pole would be vertically plumb but all that said, the total amount of work was about an hour. Thus far I have only checked a couple of directions and we get 28 EXTREMELY clear channels. Without looking at Yvonne's post I believe she noted the same number of channels but at least now the antenna isn't just sitting on our front porch. The directional remote is going to take a little getting used to because the antenna only goes 360 degrees otherwise the thing would go round and round with the wire. Just the experiment of sitting it on the porch tells me that it can be installed just about anywhere you might want. If you aren't worried about the directional ability and just want to shoot for a conglomeration of towers a person could probably put it on a table in the back yard or in your attic. Over all, easy stuff and a great product. But, there is always something to beware of. If you want it installed on the roof, DO NOT look at the gutters as I did. Now, I have a couple hours of work tomorrow cleaning the things out along with some shingles that need replacing and the neighbor's pine needles to blow off of our roof!!! I like my neighbor but I wish I could get him to come clean his needles out of our gutters and roof. No, on second thought, he might fall off our ladder or something and we'd wind up paying for hospital bills. It's a derned if you do and derned if ya don't type of situation.
