Flat Indoor Antenna
Finding the best location for the antenna
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.
IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT ANTENNA PLACEMENT:
Although the ANT1050 may perform well when placed near or on
electronics such as TVs, these electronics may also interfere with
the antenna's reception. If you experience reception difficulties
with the ANT1050, try moving it away from your TV or other
nearby electronic devices.
The ANT1050 works when on a flat surface or stretched horizontally
on a wall or window. It will not work when stretched vertically on a
wall or window.
Note: Many times the best location for the antenna is close to or on a
window. You can use two-sided tape to mount to a window pane.
Assembling the ANT1050
IMPORTANT: Remove protective film from the antenna wing
sections before assembling the antenna.
1. Remove all parts from the box. The ANT1050 antenna package
includes the following items:
1 Middle Section
(with coaxial cable)
3 Screws and Nuts
2. Unscrew the single screw holding the middle section together.
Remove the top of the middle section. Uncoil and extend the
coaxial cable built into this section.
7. Place the bottom of the middle section on the top of the middle
section. Make sure to line up the holes with the screws.
8. Flip the entire assembly over and carefully tighten the screws. DO
9. Connect the coaxial cable to your TV's antenna input.
2 Antenna Wing Sections
1 Antenna T-Bar
3. Insert the three screws into the
holes on the outside of the top
of the middle section. Hold the
screws in place and flip the top
of the middle section over. Set
it on a flat surface.
4. Place the antenna T-Bar
(labeled A) on the middle
section top so that the large
hole in the T-Bar fits over the
large post. IMPORTANT: The
T-Bar must be installed for the
antenna to work properly.
5. Find the antenna wing section
labeled B. Line the screw holes
in this antenna wing up with
the screws inserted in the
middle section top so that the
B on the antenna wing lines
up with the B on the middle
section top. Lower the holes
onto the screws.
6. Find the other antenna wing
section. Line the screw holes in
this antenna wing up with the
screws inserted in the middle
section top so that the C on the
antenna wing is in the bottom
right corner of the middle
section top. Lower the holes
onto the screws.
Assembly and Usage Instructions
Note about digital channels
To display digital signals on your TV, you'll need to have the right
equipment: either a TV that is capable of decoding digital signals
or a digital converter box.
I have a cable ready TV. Why can't I get channels above 13?
The tuners inside of cable ready TVs have two modes: one for cable
and one for antenna. When the TV is in cable mode, and you are
using an antenna, you will not be able to receive any channels above
13. To fix this, simply access the menu of your TV and switch the TV
from Cable/CATV mode to ANT/AIR mode.
I have my TV in a metal cabinet. Will the antenna work for me?
Any large metal objects will prevent the antenna signal from
reaching the antenna. You must place the antenna outside of or
above the metal cabinet.
My home has aluminum siding/insulation. Where should I place
Place the antenna near a window to minimize interference and
improve your reception.
Can I use my antenna in a basement?
TV signals usually cannot penetrate into basement locations due to
their lower elevation.
Please Note: Other variables, unrelated to antenna performance,
can effect your reception. These include distance from the
broadcasting source, and natural or man-made conditions (such as
buildings between the transmitting source and your antenna).
