Our take on the Channel Master 4030 by Crutchfield's Loren Barstow
Enjoy free over-the-air television broadcasts with the Channel Master 4030. This amplified indoor antenna pulls in both analog and digital TV signals, including those in high-definition.
The VHF dipoles and UHF loop tilt and rotate, letting you fine-tune the antenna for individual stations. The 4030's built-in amplifier helps it pull in weaker signals. The 4030 also pulls in FM radio stations. And dual outputs let you connect the antenna to a TV and FM tuner at the same time.
So far, this antenna is working great for me. To my surprise, I can get 27 channels in an around the New Orleans. I had no idea there were that many here! The reception I am getting is crystal clear, and vivid. I couldn't ask for better.

Channel Master 4030 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Channel Master Model 4030 indoor antenna is designed to provide optimum reception of UHF/VHF and FM signals, including digital HDTV signals. It has dual 75-ohm outputs to allow connection to multiple TVs, or VCR, DVD recorder, DVR, or FM receivers. It includes a 6' coaxial cable and an AC adapter.
Design: The antenna features two 6-section telescoping masts for VHF reception (Channels 2 through 13). Each mast is 7" long when retracted and 34" long when extended. The masts can tilt and rotate for best reception. For UHF reception (Channels 14 through 69), the Model 4030 has a loop antenna that tilts and rotates for best reception.
Amplification: The 4030 amplifies incoming signals 10 times (15 dB gain).
Fine Tuning: The antenna is equipped with a rotary fine tuning knob. The knob can be turned to one of six positions for best reception.
RF Terminator: Included with the antenna is an RF Terminator cap that should be used when only one 75-ohm output is used. It prevents leakage of radio frequencies that can negatively affect reception.
