Our take on the Channel Master 4040

by Steve Kindig

The compact Channel Master 4040 antenna provides excellent indoor reception of digital and analog over-the-air TV signals in the UHF band. (Most digital TV signals are in the UHF band.) You can place the 4040 on top of your TV or entertainment center, or wall-mount it using the supplied hardware.

For tips on selecting an antenna, and links to websites that help you locate HDTV signals in your area, check out our article on choosing and installing an antenna for HDTV.

Overview: The Channel Master Model 4040 indoor UHF/HDTV antenna offers excellent indoor UHF/HDTV reception. The antenna design allows
for increased forward gain while minimizing interference from the side and rear. The antenna is wall mounted or it can be placed on top of the TV set or entertainment center.

Reception: The Channel Master Model 4040 indoor antenna is designed to provide optimum reception of UHF frequencies only (channels 14-69), both digital and analog.

Operating Range: The rated range of the Channel Master 4040 is 15 miles, but the distance is approximate, actual performance depends on too many variables to predict accurately.

Coaxial Cable: The indoor antenna includes an attached 9' coaxial cable terminated by a male F-connector for flexible placement.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I live on the Oregon coast and didn't think I was going have much luck receiving HDTV signals, so I was hesitant to purchase this or any other antenna. However I have been pleasantly surprised by how well it works. I am receiving several HDTV channels and the purchase was well the price!
