New Small-profile, Long-range TV Antennas Introduced
FLORISSANT, MO.: The folks at Antenna Pros say they’ve come up
with new long-range TV antennas that can actually fit in an attic. The
Reflector Series line is described as “long-range, digital, outdoor HDTV” compatible.
“These antennas use the latest technology to give users a powerful high gain
antenna that is small enough to fit in your attic,” the company says.
Three models comprise the series, the AX-903, AX-906, and AX-909. All have the
same power and features, Antenna Pros said, but they “look slightly different”
to give people “a choice in the look and feel of their DTV antenna.” All have
remote-control rotation, and run around $70.
The moniker is derived from the design, which includes a “reflector dish to
amplify the antennas’ power.” Antenna Pros says they’ll pull in signals from as
far as 100 miles.
“The reflector dish on the Antenna Pros antennas are an upgrade over the older
versions because the reflector dish is able to help focus the signals and make
them more stable,” the company says. “This is a feature that has not been
offered before in the compact long-range digital antenna market.”
The antenna comes with 30 feet of RG6 coaxial cable and the remote-control
gear. The control unit has an on off switch to turn the high-gain booster on or
off. The control unit also has two outputs and with splitters, can support
eight TVs. They primarily target the UHF band.
