About the Channel Master 3020
Channel Master's model 3020 antenna can receive digital and analog over-the-air TV signals in the UHF and VHF bands. The 3020 is recommended for "deep-fringe" applications — its large size and numerous reception elements help it pull in signals from distant transmitters. For even clearer reception, try adding the 7777 preamplifier.
The 3020 is classified as a Large Directional antenna. 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 the best HDTV antenna.

More details on the Channel Master 3020
Overview: The Channel Master 3020 antenna is a 50 element split boom design and receives FM, UHF, and VHF frequencies, both digital and analog. It can be mounted on a roof, to the chimney, on a wall, or in an attic.
Mounting: The saddle brackets, crossarm bracket, and U-bolts are used to mount the antenna to the mast. The outer diameter of the mast should be between 1-1/4 and 1-1/2 inches.
Turning Radius: If using a rotor on the antenna mast, make sure a 95" turning radius around the antenna is clear of obstruction.
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 included transformer is connected to the antenna tap-off points using the included wing nuts. The other end of the transformer has a female F-type connector. The included waterproof rubber weather boot should be installed over the cable connection to guard against corrosion. Note: Coax cable is not provided, RG-6 is recommended.
Operating Range: all distances are approximate, actual performance depends on too many variables to predict accurately
