Channel Master 3016 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Channel Master 3016 antenna has 24 elements 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 bracket, crossarm bracket, and U-bolt 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 41" 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
- UHF Channels (14-69): 30 miles
- VHF Channels (2-13): 45 miles
- FM Radio: 45 miles
Gain: The average gain across the frequency band:
- VHF Lo: 1.2 dB
- VHF Hi: 7.9 dB
- UHF: 7.7 dB
