Our take on the Channel Master 4220MHD by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
The Channel Master 4220MHD antenna can receive digital and analog over-the-air TV signals in the UHF band only (most digital TV signals are in the UHF band). The 4220MHD is optimized for reception of digital TV. It comes with an easy-to-install satellite dish-style swivel mount, which can be attached to a rooftop, eave or exterior wall.
The 4220MHD is classified as a Medium-sized 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 and installing an antenna for HDTV.
Did a lot of research on antennas so we could lose the rabbit ears on all of our TV sets. Crutchfield had the best quality, best pricing, and quick, no-cost delivery time. After assembling and installing the antenna on the roof, we get 100% crystal clear reception on all channels in our area.

Channel Master 4220MHD Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Channel Master 4220MHD antenna is designed for UHF frequencies only (channels 14-69), both digital and analog.
Mast Mounting: The antenna can be mounted using the included standard satellite mast; or it can be mounted to a traditional (straight) antenna mast. The included mast can be mounted on a roof, under an eave, or on a wall.
Mounting Brackets: The antenna mounting brackets and the U-bolt are used to mount the antenna to a mast. The outer diameter of the mast should be at least 1-1/4 inches.
Turning Radius: If using a rotor on the antenna mast, make sure a 12" turning radius around the antenna is clear of obstruction (the 12" turning radius assumes the antenna is mounted to a straight mast).
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 balun is built-in (attached at the factory) and has a female F-type connector. The included waterproof rubber weather boot should be installed over the cable connection to guard against corrosion. A twist-on threaded F-connector is also included.
Note: Coax cable is not provided, RG-6 is recommended.
Operating Range: The rated range of the 4220MHD is 30 miles, but the distance is approximate, actual performance depends on too many variables to predict accurately.
Gain: The average gain across the UHF frequency range is 8.2 dB.

2 answers I live in southern Utah and I'm wondering if this antenna system will be a good one for this area. Home is located near some mountains to the north and a fairly open area to the east and west. Television transmitters are located on the mountains to the west and the east and I think we will have a fairly open line of sight in those directions. Would this be a good antenna to use in our area? Thank you for your response. John [ John Dec 03, 2013 ]
