Our take on the Channel Master CM3000A by Crutchfield's Loren Barstow
Channel Master's CM3000A antenna provides crystal-clear over-the-air digital TV broadcasts. Its multi-directional design means it can pull in signals from all directions without requiring a rotor. Plus, it's small enough to easily mount on your roof, wall, or chimney, or in attic. The CM3000A's built-in amplifier improves reception of weaker stations.
The CM3000A is classified as a Small Multi-directional antenna, with maximum range of 45 miles. 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.

Channel Master CM3000A Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Modern Design: The Channel Master SMARTenna (CM 3000A) is a light weight outdoor antenna with a modern and sleek design. The modern style is unobtrusive and blends well with the decor of most homes and condominiums. The SMARTenna features a UV protected, copolymer, weatherproof housing.
HDTV Ready: This antenna is optimized to receive HDTV signals. The Channel Master SMARTenna omnidirection antenna provides excellent reception of UHF and VHF TV channels in most viewing locations. With the Channel Master CM 3000A you will receive crystal clear, native, uncompressed HDTV signals up to 45 miles away from the broadcast tower.
Omnidirectional Antenna: The Channel Master SMARTenna has omnidirectional characteristics to provide receptions where stations are in different directions without the use of a rotator system. The CM 3000A receives reception from all directions, so no rotator is required.
Built-in Amplifier: The SMARTenna includes an internal amplifier to improve reception in weak signal locations. It is also very advantageous where the signal from the antenna is split to several TV sets.
Mounting: The Channel Master SMARTenna can be mounted to a mast (round mast up to 1.5" O.D) on roofs, walls, chimneys, and attics.
