For this antenna to work properly, you must access the menu
on the television you are connecting this antenna to (consult
your television owner’s manual) then set it to receive the
signal from an ANTENNA instead of CABLE or SATELLITE.
Adjustable Gain Amplifier
1. Connect the supplied coaxial cable (attached to the back of the antenna) to the back of
your TV.
2. Connect the power transformer to the antenna then to an AC power outlet.
3. Locate the signal source - Face the antenna towards the source of the signal (trnsmitter).

Hide-Away VHF Dipoles
For VHF reception
1) For VHF reception, position the dipoles so that they are BOTH fully extended and straight
up in the air perpendicular to the antenna
2) For channels 2 through 6, extend the dipoles fully and adjust to a horizontal position**. For
channels,7 through 13, shorten the dipoles by 1/3 length and position in a "V" **.
For FM reception
1) Extend the dipoles to 30" and position them either straight up or horizontally**.
For UHF reception
1) Make sure the dipoles are collapsed and folded back underneath the antenna
2) For channels 14 through 69, rotate or point the center portion of the antenna ( large silver
portion) towards the transmitter**.
**Indicates that for best results - some adjustments may be necessary
Using the amplifier
NOTE: It is recommended that you try to obtain clear reception first ( with out the use of
the amplifier) - if a clear picture is nto achieved then proceed to the steps below.
1) Make sure that you have the antenna adjusted to receive the clearest picture possible
before you adjust the gain.
2) Slowly increase the amplifier gain until you achieve the clearest picture possible. Rarely, it is
necessary to use maximum gain.Too much gain may result in overamplification or poor
picture quality.
NOTE: the amplfier gain can increased by rotating the knob located on the back of the
antenna.The level of amplification is indicated by the size of the black arrow bext to the knob.
