For your safety and con- venience, plan each step of the installation and purchase the necessary hardware in advance.
Important Safety Precautions Many do-it-yourself and professional antenna installers are injured or killed each year by electric shock. While anyone can see the obvious danger of falling, the most resourceful people sometimes fail to recognize overhead wires as being potentially lethal.
Mounting The Antenna For the best results, mount the antenna away from trees or other obstructions. Higher frequencies are noticeably affected by these obstructions. The antenna is easy to install on any antenna mast or optional light-duty mount using simple hand tools. The antenna pack- age includes these parts: Antenna Antenna Mounting Bracket...
Lightning Protection (When Mounting The Antenna Outside) • Ground wires for both the mast and downlead should be copper or aluminum wire, 8 AWG or larger. • Mount a grounding block, not supplied, as close as possible to where the downlead enters the house. •...
If your TV has a 75 ohm VHF connection and a 300 ohm UHF connection, connect a signal splitter, not supplied, between the power injector and the TV’s VHF/UHF connections. Coaxial Cable Installation Precautions • Do not bend coaxial cable into less than a 3 inch radius. Tighter bends can cause shorts and change the cable’s impedance.
Assembling The Mounting Bracket The ANT2020 consists of an off-air bracket and hardware, an offset mast, and eleven inch extension, and a swaged tube for non-vertical mounting. The bracket may be used with a satellite dish or alone to mount this off-air antenna. For vertical mounting, place the off-air bracket behind the Satellite Mounting Bracket and follow the mounting instructions that came with the satellite system.
