Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Overview: The Channel Master 4220MHD antenna
is designed for UHF frequencies only (channels 14-69), both digital and analog.
Mast Mounting: The antenna can be mounted using the included
standard satellite mast; or it can be mounted to a traditional (straight)
antenna mast. The included mast can be mounted on a roof, under an eave, or on a
Mounting Brackets: The antenna mounting brackets and the
U-bolt are used to mount the antenna to a mast. The outer diameter of the mast
should be at least 1-1/4 inches.
Turning Radius: If using a rotor on the antenna mast, make sure
a 12" turning radius around the antenna is clear of obstruction (the 12"
turning radius assumes the antenna is mounted to a straight mast).
Grounding: The antenna and mast should be
properly grounded. Grounding provides lightning protection for the antenna and
your TV set.
Note: No grounding hardware is provided with the antenna.
Connections: The balun is
built-in (attached at the factory) and has a female F-type connector. The included waterproof
rubber weather boot should be installed over the cable connection to guard
against corrosion. A twist-on threaded F-connector is also included.
Note: Coax cable is not provided, RG-6 is recommended.
Operating Range: The rated range of the 4220MHD is 30 miles, but the distance
is approximate, actual performance depends on too many variables to predict accurately.
Gain: The average gain across the UHF frequency range is 8.2 dB.
