I bought a Sangean HDT-1 tuner specifically to listen to a jazz station about 40 miles away. I hooked up my rooftop TV antenna and I could not get the station. Then I used the included Di-Pole antenna will so/so results. In good weather I could usually get the jazz station, but it would often drop out.
When this Stellar Labs antenna arrived I assembled it and laid it down on my dining room table. As soon as I connected the antenna wire to my tuner the jazz station came in with full signal strength !!
I ended up hanging the antenna from the ceiling in a closet and I always get full strength and have never lost the station, ever. I also get several other stations that I never knew existed.
I will note that I don't think this antenna is truly Omnidirectional. During my final installation I rotated it to get the strongest signal for the station I was specifically interested in and it made a big difference. Even their instruction manual indicates that the antenna isn't Omnidirectional.
However, it works great for me and I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.
It is advertised as "outdoor omnidirectional," but it is not truly omnidirectional, and-- get this-- it can be used successfully indoors! I found out the hard way-- after mounting it outdoors near the peak of a three-story house in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Some rotational adjustment of the antenna is necessary depending on the direction of the FM stations I like to listen to, especially distant, urban FM stations. I can't imagine getting up on a ladder to twist and turn it in the right direction if I want to fine tune the FM reception each time I change a station, can you?
I took the antenna down, and I was about to pack it up for a return, when I said to myself, "Let me give it one final try-- installing it indoors, on the interior of my third-floor bedroom, mounting it on something that I can easily adjust." So, I put the antenna on an old 1-inch x 4-foot wooden pole-- a former curtain rod-- wedging the pole vertically in between the contours of a hot-water radiator that is in front of a window. I plugged the coaxial cable that I had attached to the antenna into to the back of my Bose Wave Radio, and "Voila!" FM stations that had been previously inaccessible began to come in loud and clear.
This old, wood frame house has a clear view of the Eastern horizon, but the Kittatinny Ridge over in New Jersey prevents any signals reaching me from New York City, 68 miles away. However, if I twist the pole mount on its axis about 20 degrees to the south, I am able to get a clear signal from my favorite public radio station, WHYY-FM, Philadelphia, which has its transmitter located in Roxborough, 67.5 miles from my house. If I rotate it a few degrees more to the East, I get WPRB-FM, Princeton University, which is 56 miles away. These distances are all straight-line measurements. According to the map on the Radio Locator web site, I am OUTSIDE the fringe reception area for both of these stations, but thanks to this antenna, the signals come in clearly.
One word of advice: The wide black plastic clip that joins the two pieces of the antenna together is a pretty good pointer. For Philadelphia stations to the South of here, I rotate the antenna until this plastic clip is roughly pointing in the direction of Philadelphia.
None of this is in the directions, of course.
I am now very happy with this antenna.
You may want to update the instructions to explain that you need to apply force and bend the elements and catch them in place. I would have sworn that something was missing and I would break the elements of I forced them into place as per the diagram. But sure enough, I forced them into place and they didn't break. I used the mount to place it high on the roof of my house. The lead in is about 80 feet.
And it works beautifully! It's not the most physically robust structure, but it is well-supported and I've been pleasantly surprised. Just thought I'd post this with a photo to suggest alternative mountings if you don't have a standard mast to work with; the square central tube makes it easy to use other attachment methods, as to a beam in an attic.

I wa getting nothing before; now I can get all seven stations from kochi, around 40 kilometers away with 70% clarity.
There are a lot of Tall trees blocking the antenna. If I can increase the height the reception will be better, but the threat of lightning is there
