What customers say about "Key Specs"
Channel Master CM-4221 UHF and HDTV Antenna
  • I am impressed with the range of this antenna. Fast free shipping also.
  • This antenna has shown me the best combination of range and multi-directionality.
  • After installing and figuring out how to run the coax into the house, we were pleasantly treated with HD channels.
  • This is an AWESOME antenna. I put it in my attic and get all the local channels without a booster. All HD also.
  • Love it, installed in Parents attic and get 60 plus HD channels that are clear as a bell.
Channel Master CM-4228HD High VHF, UHF and HDTV Antenna
  • Excellent. I cannot comment on the range, listed as '80 miles' because I am only 30 miles away from the nearest television antenna transmission cluster. But it's work amazing.
  • Great antenna! Pulls in UHF as well as Hi-VHF frequencies which was perfect for my location.
  • The 80 mile range is a joke. I am less than 35 miles from most of the main towers. Overall signal dropped 25% instead of improving.
  • Despite the claim of 80 mile range I was only able to get stations 50 miles out and could not get a VHF station that was 25 miles out.
  • This Channel Master CM4228HD failed to perform as well as the smaller and cheaper Mediasonic. I expected an antenna with 75 mile range, to perform as well or better.

  • This just the antenna I needed for an attic installation. It is well built and sturdy, compact enough to get into the attic access and very easy to set up.
  • The compact design makes it easy to orient with the rotator. Highly recommended!
  • Pulls in networks like no other antenna I have used before. Great compact design.
  • I was looking for a small UHF antenna for portable use when camping, and this antenna seemed to fit the bill.

  • Small size and light weight. Live 80 miles from nearest station outperforms channel master ultra high digital cross fire.
  • Weight, size, assembly all great for handyman. Installed unit in our attic. Allowed us to cut the cable. Very pleased.

What customers say about "Features"
Channel Master CM-4221 UHF and HDTV Antenna
  • This antenna replaced an omnidirectional one which was hit and miss with the weather.
  • The antenna arrived in a good solid box and was simple to assemble, two wing nuts and pretty good quality.
  • It was simple to install and we are very happy with the clear quality of the few basic channels we watch.
  • On a windy day or bad weather it cuts out a lot but on a calm day most channels come in perfectly.
  • Its quality seemed average; nothing special, and I am sure it would last as well as the many others on the market.
Channel Master CM-4228HD High VHF, UHF and HDTV Antenna
  • The antenna pulls in more stations than the previous 2 without any signal amplification. Does a great job.
  • I get 39 channels and am running it to 3 different TV's with NO amplification needed. Great antenna for my area.
  • I picked this up because it reception up to 80 miles and I needed a more wind resistant antenna than the Winegard HD7698P I had since I live in a hurricane prone area.
  • The Channel Master appears to be a very good weather resistant antenna.
  • Their amplification circuit is questionable at best, and their mast rotation function is not indexed, so you have to guess where it is pointing.
