This works very good! We scanned the channels and it popped up with 20! We thought maybe 4 or 5 channels would pop up, but we were pleasantly surprised. We are happy we cut off the cable! I live between 2 big towns Rockford, IL & Madison, WI. I get both sets of channels. (I am about 40 miles from both, right in the middle of them both). Picture is crisp and clear. You would never know its an antenna!
