The Leaf® Ultimate is Mohu's best performing super-thin TV antenna. It mounts easily to a wall, or just about anywhere, really. You can even hide it behind a picture on the wall. The Leaf Ultimate can receive free over-the-air HDTV broadcasts from multiple directions, so you don't have to move it to pick up signals from different TV towers.
The Leaf's sophisticated super-thin design is modeled after a mud flap antenna designed for the U.S. military. It can pull in stations in the UHF and high-band VHF ranges (channels 7-51). You'll generally get the best reception if you can place the antenna fairly high on a wall or close to a window, away from the TV and other components. The Leaf is white on one side and black on the other, and is also paintable for even greater room décor adaptability.
Mohu's signal amplifier gives the Ultimate its edge
What makes this antenna "Ultimate" is Mohu's high-performance antenna amplifier. It uses patent-pending technology to increase reception range while filtering out the RF noise that can harm picture quality. Compared to the Leaf antenna alone, most people find that the Ultimate's antenna/amplifier combo lets them receive more stations, while also producing a clearer picture on stations with less-than-perfect reception. The compact amplifier module connects between the Leaf antenna and your TV.
You have a couple of options for powering the amplifier. There's a mini USB port on the amplifier module, which allows you to power it off of any standard USB port on your TV — the USB-to-mini-USB cable is included. The advantage of USB power is that the amplifier will only draw power when the TV is turned on, instead of 24/7. If you don't have an available USB port on your TV, the amplifier also includes a regular AC power adapter, which you can plug into any standard wall outlet.
