Congratulations on your purchase of the Amplified Flat Multi-Directional Indoor Antenna.
With this contemporary antenna, rabbit ears are a thing of the past. This sleek, attractive
antenna features the most advanced technology, including a patented engineering design that
provides excellent reception for both analog and digital TV broadcasts.
Multi-Directional Antennas
A multi-directional antenna is able to receive signals from any direction. Useful for both
analog and digital reception, the antenna looks great, facilitates optimal reception, and
requires very little space. The patented multi-directional technology ensures that the
antenna does not need to be adjusted according to the location of the transmitting signal.
Antenna Features
English
The Amplified Flat Multi-Directional Indoor Antenna is packed with features that make
it as functional as it is attractive. Because the antenna is multi-directional, there is no need
to constantly turn the antenna to improve reception. And, with its compact footprint, the
antenna is so unobtrusive, you can hang it on the wall, stand it up or lay it flat. Its attractive
design complements any décor. The antenna:
• Features a removable amplifier to optimize reception of local standard definition and
high definition signals
• Outperforms traditional antennas due to patented design
• Eliminates constant adjustments with multi-directional reception pattern
• Gets great reception in any position—lying flat, hanging, or standing
• Takes up minimal space

Setting Up the Antenna
Find the best location for the antenna
English
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 antenna receives UHF,
VHF, and local high-definition broadcasts, providing quality reception from most locations.
Note: The antenna 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 antenna flat The antenna 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 antenna The back of the antenna antenna has two mounting holes that can
be used for hanging. Place both holes over screws inserted in your wall.
• Stand the antenna upright The antenna comes with a removable stand. Simply place
the antenna in the stand to prop the antenna in an upright position.

Painting Your Antenna
You can paint the antenna to match your décor. Use only non-metal-based interior paint.
Coaxial Cable Installation Precautions
English
• Do not bend coaxial cables into less than a three-inch radius. Tighter bends can cause
shorts and can change a cable’s impedance.
• Do not install a coaxial cable where it will have a pulling tension greater than 15 pounds
during installation. After installation, make sure there is no tension on the cable.
• Use only round-headed staples. Any clamps or securing devices used with coax should
grip the cable evenly about the circumference without crushing the cable. Flat staples can
damage the coaxial cable.
• Do not expose a coaxial cable to a temperature greater than 176 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep
the cable away from heating vents and water heaters.
