Overview: The Channel Master 3018 antenna
is a 30 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 bracket, crossarm
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.
If using a rotor on the antenna mast, make sure a 58" 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.

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
Note: Coax cable is not provided, RG-6 is recommended.
