Labgear TV Aerial High-Gain Digital
Not so good in strong winds
This aerial gives excellent reception in our area of patchy coverage, which is what attracted us to it in the first place. However unlike the traditional aerial it replaced the black plastic components present quite a target for the wind resulting in it blowing out of position on the circular mast it's on in our exposed location. I've tightened it to the point of causing distortion to the mast and it still turns around in high winds.

Great Performance Aerial
Very good value professional performing aerial, fast assembly, light weight but well constructed.

Just Installed the Labgear high gain digital roof/loft aerial and I must admit it was much easier than I thought it was going to be.
Lightweight in design but of quality build. instruction are a doddle to follow and I have just connected it to my free view box and it works a treat.
I would definitely recommend this item to anybody to purchase and you don't need to be an expert to install it either.

Picks up TV signals but...
I'm always suspicious of TV antennas with wacky shapes as compared to your traditional yagi, as I wonder how much is for show rather than performance. The beam is quite short. A standard yagi I would expect to be longer (and the longer the higher the gain). Nevertheless the short length makes it good for a loft space. It does pick up signals although I didn't have another antenna to compare it too. It was very easy to assemble and came with a mounting bracket. It picked up a signal over a wide sweep. Again a good high gain yagi should be very directional, so not sure what to make of this. Bottom line is that it works, I am just not sure how well!
