This arrived in time for my friend who is going on a long vacation in his millennium camper van that has the old style analog TV roof antenna but inside is an upgraded HDMI TV.
This Flexbin antenna arrived in a nice neat box with a separate booster and a page of unique instructions. We were skeptical because the antenna was so lightweight and floppy. Included were attached red peel and stick tape for permanent mounting.
After testing this out, we discovered this is a powerful antenna. We were pulling in 58 stations including some that are broadcast from antennas over 70 miles away. We are located in Florida which is mostly a pretty flat state.
We tested it out in my old motorhome so my friend could see how it works before he set it up in his camper van. I have an analog antenna on my roof with an aftermarket UHF booster that brings in digital channels.
We scanned the TV with my roof antenna which brought in 61 channels.
We disconnected that roof antenna, then rescanned the TV with NO antenna, Now got only 5 channels.
Next we hooked up the Flexblin Indoor HDTV antenna. My motorhome has a metal frame, so we placed the Flexbin indoors next to a window that was more or less in the direction of where most of the TV stations have their broadcast antennas. We did not hook up the included booster, but we scanned the TV stations again picking up only 5 channels (same as no antenna. )
58 Channels next:
We hooked the included booster to the Flexbin by attaching the cable from the Flexbin antenna to the booster, then the booster to the TV. We plugged the USB that powers the booster. A red light will come on the booster to let you know it's powered up. There is no on/off for the booster. Just unplug it if you want it off.
Bingo! We scanned the TV again and now we got 58 channels. This is remarkably impressive as my much higher roof mounted antenna only picked up 3 more antennas.
This diminutive antenna is perfect for tiny home living as well as motorhomes, RV's and boats.
