Channel Master CM-3000HD SMARTenna
Our take on the Channel Master 3010 by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Channel Master's model 3010 "stealth" antenna can receive digital and analog over-the-air TV signals in the UHF and VHF bands. Its shallow depth means the 3010 can be installed under an eave for an inconspicuous look. It's also suitable for roof, wall and attic installations. The 3010's relatively compact size makes it a practical addition to a DBS satellite system.
The 3010 has two classifications: Medium-sized Directional for VHF signals and Small Directional for UHF. 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.
I have this mounted in the attic with no amplifier and picks up 44 digital channels, 20 of them in HD. Being in the attic the only downside is that it has to be aimed just right to get the weaker or more distant signals. Most stations are between 15 and 30 miles away.

Channel Master 3010 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Channel Master 3010 STEALTHtenna receives FM, UHF, and VHF frequencies, both digital and analog. It can be mounted on a roof, on a wall, or in an attic.
Saddle Bracket: The saddle bracket will accommodate a mast between 1-1/4 and 1-2/3 inches.
Turning Radius: If using a rotor on the antenna mast, make sure a 30" 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. No grounding hardware is provided with the antenna.
Connections: A female F-type connector is on the underside of the antenna body. The included waterproof rubber weather boot should be installed over the cable to guard against corrosion. Coax cable is not provided, RG-6 is recommended.
