I decided to try the GE 29884 antenna based on the reviews I read on Amazon. The antenna comes in a fairly small box labelled as Pro Outdoor/Attic Mount Antenna. The installation booklet is small with tiny "mice" type. So you might need to scan in the booklet in order to be able to zoom in on the text and illustrations. All the parts are nicely packaged and are easily identified in the instruction manual. A count of each part type is also given, Prior to installation it helps to layout all the parts including the nuts and screws, the reflector rods, dipole antenna parts, main mast, mounting parts, etc. The installation can be a bit tricky, if you follow the manual. However is you do a search on "GE 29884 antenna assembly", YouTube videos can be found that simplify the assembly process a great deal. It took me about a half an hour to assemble the antenna. One nice thing is that rubber end caps were provided to cap off the dipole rods. The antenna definitely seems to be a quality product.
I mounted the antenna in the attic, as high as possible using the provided J-mount mounting hardware and supplied M5 bolts and nuts. I disconnected the coaxial cable from the cable TV provider, and connected it to the antenna's connector located on the main mast. Using a bedroom TV, I then selected "antenna" as the input, and performed a channel scan. A total of 106 channels scanned. Most were crystal clear. Perhaps 3 or 4 were pixelated. Sure many of the channels are trash or of no interest to me (shopping channels, religious, languages I don't speak, etc) but many great channels came in beautifully including all the local channels and sub-channels, movie channels, retro, public, etc. A few audio-only channels were picked up. And I didn't have the amplifier connected.
I did wire up the amplifier simply because a signal splitter attenuates the signal from the antenna as you feed the signal to multiple TVs. The 4-port amplifier boosts the signal going to each TV.
So far, I've had the antenna for a week and I have not been disappointed. All I can say is "bye bye cable TV company". It is time to cut the cable. The antenna and amplifier will pay for itself in a month or two.
Update: 6 weeks later: This antenna works like a charm. I have cut the cord, get no more monthly cable bills, and could not be happier.
Yes, you have to put it together...which was not as difficult as I expected, however the instructions are so small and badly written, that GE just can't be the party that manufacturers the antenna itself.
Yes, you have to mount this antenna on a stud in the attic. I would not recommend this antenna for outdoors as it is a little fragile with the plastic used. I can see the UV from the sun breaking down the plastic over a quick period of time. My antenna has about 22' of RG-6 cable between it and my Silicon HomeRun tuners. There is no need for an amplifier with this distance and using one may actually hurt the signal.
Before you even think of going up in the attic, you need to lookup your broadcasting antennas on antennaweb to figure out exactly where you should be pointing your antenna. I have 3 broadcast towers in my area...some of which are far apart from one another. Some were at 326, 357 and 343 degrees from my house. Take the average of all those (342 degrees) and that is where you should point your antenna. Load up the free Compass app on your iPhone (or similar) and use it to show exactly where you should point the antenna.
What about performance? Well, with the previous flat panel, I was getting about 2 (or 3) of 5 bars for signal strength on 9 channels. After putting in this antenna, most every channel is about 5 of 5 bars...AND I'm able to pickup an additional 10 channels. Pretty good! I have only seen channel degradation when it is stormy or windy outside, but figure it can't be from my antenna in the attic. Overall, for cord cutters, this is the best way to go to get your locals for free. I'm now saving about $70 month by not dumping it to the cable company.
When it showed up I figured it would take some assembly as the box is tiny. Took me maybe 15 minutes to get it together. The instructions are a little confusing because the first two figures show the reflectors installed upside down. Just use the photo on the box as your guide.
I mounted it in the middle of the attic as I read that signal is better the further it is from any barrier (the roof). Got it pointed in the general direction, and ran the wire down the wall, and plugged it into an HDHomeRun Connect Duo tuner. Set up the software, scanned for channels, then got the HDHomeRun signal test app on my phone and went back into the roof to fine tune the orientation (was off by a few degrees). Now I'm getting 100% on all the major networks.
If I were mounting an antenna outside I'd get one that uses less plastic, in my experience UV exposure will make plastic brittle and break over time.

Je pourrais améliorer le signal en passant un fil qui serait d’un seul trait (sans jonctions) vers chaque télé car chaque union me fait perdre du signal. Mais ça me satisfait tel quel.
We don;t watch too much too TV but it works well for those live streams and morning CityTV news.
Easy solution to get rid of cable/sat service.
Receives major channels like CBS, FOX 29, CityTV, ESCAPE, CBC, can upload full list once at home.
Muy buena calidad de construcción, fácil de instalar y funciona perfectamente. Las antenas de repetición están a no más de 3 km de mi casa, así que decidir por una antena de 70 millas tal vez fue algo exagerado, pero el resultado lo valió. Adiós TV de paga! Ahora solo streaming y DTV
Maybe there's too much interference from those 5G cell towers that are going up?
Avec un 2x4 et des bout de fils de cuivre , je captais 12 poste donc quelques chaine de Montréal et quelques chaîne américaine et Sans amplificateur!!!
Dois je utiliser un amplificateur pour ce type d'antenne? Très déçu..
Pros: Picture quality, build quality.
Cons: Instructions could be written clearer, a little pricey.
