Great Performer

This antenna gets the job done...Reasonable price for a small powerful antenna.

Best purchase

by

Excellent product. Building it was easy all snap no screws. Not flimsy sturdy heavy gauge plastics. Still light weight. Very good reception better than any indoor junk antennas. Well worth the money

A little scary installing on my steep tile roof, but well worth the effort to cut the cord

by

So far I've been very happy with the Televes 148883 Antenna. I tried it out first in my attic (30 ft above ground) and was able to receive Seattle stations 50+ miles away, but somewhat sporadically. I moved it to the roof today, so there is no blockage and its 10 5 feet higher. So far I've added a few channels, and I get all four major stations - ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, as well as a slew of other stations.

continued......... " people on each floor could hear him say, so far so good." Another very much
appreciated feature is that it's made in Europe, NOT china. Knock me over with a feather! I just don't remember the last time I ran into that.

Televes Ellipse review

by

Bought this antenna to replace a 45 year old Channel Master . Mounted it on a J pole under 12 feet high. This relatively small antenna with included amplifier is outperforming anything we have ever had with any mount. Televes equipment and Solid Signal service has been unsurpassed! Could not be happier!

Good, very good.

by

Very good! Probably very good because the amp. is from the same company and is matched to the antenna. Stations that we could barely receive are now coming in at 80, 90 and even 100%. I'm very pleased. The cell filter and splitter are also very good things to have as well. I put the TV on one side of the splitter and the DVR on the other. So that we don't always have to watch the TV through the DVR. We get a better picture that way. Also we can record and watch something different. The antenna was easy to put assemble and install. The coax is a tad bit difficult to attach to the antenna, but it only happens once so it ain't the end of the world. I should mention that we are about 50 miles from the stations. In Knoxville all of the stations broadcast from the same location, which is very helpful for me. All in all I'm very pleased with this antenna. But, as they say, "have you heard the story about the man who fell of the 10 story building?"

Great antenna

Good antenna great price

Best antennae ever!

by

I have used a channel master that was a hand me down from my father 37 years after he used it for at least 17 years prior to that. It served us well until about two years ago when I started losing reception and channels we did get often pixelated. Our rabbit ears report indicated if we were to gain our stations back we needed a large top of the line antennae at least 30 feet in the air and would need a powered splitter to feed 4 tvs. Researched and bought a Televes Ellipse with its T force amplifier. I mounted it to the old mast from a failed Dish application. It is only about 15 feet above ground. Very happy to report we now have all of available channels with the best reception ever. No pixelation at all. I am overjoyed that we now get all our local channels once more. Could not be happier with this antennae!

Awesome Antenna!!!!

by

Awesome Antenna, assembles easy and it is easy to install. Great signal from an OTA antenna, I live in a valley and it still pulled in over 85 crystal clear channels.
Highly recommend!

Fixed all my Signal Issues from previous antenna

by

This Ellipse antenna was recommended to me by several people for my area. I do not have any mountains or large obstacles between the towers and my house. My previous GE outdoor antenna from Walmart crapped out randomly and i lost 75% of my channels. Checked everything in my setup and replaced any suspicious components. Nothing fixed the issue until i installed the Ellipse. I instantly got all my channels back, not at 30-32 dB and signal strength is steady at 98-100%. I also went from 52-67 channels and even some further than 50 miles away. The setup was easy and it's light enough to carry on a steep roof without issue. Televes made it easy to assemble, instructions were clear, and it is much more sturdy than the GE antenna i had. Hope it lasts at least 5 years for me as it was more money than i wanted to spend an on antenna, but it's a great quality antenna and works fantastic.

I like it it so far...

by

This antenna was recommended via Youtube by Antenna Man. So I am giving it a try. Was simple to assemble: small and light enough to easily mount by one person. Reception is improved over older existing window sheet model with an amplifier. I mounted on a 5 foot mast and have not yet connected the ampilfier. Trees block direct reception nonetheless more channels are able to be viewed. Time will tell what happens in bad weather and full time outdoor exposure...

Rural home in Western PA, 50 miles from towers is connected.

by

Your antenna does an incredible job for our home. It is currently providing a beautiful picture on 7 tvs located in our home and garage. Some of them are probably at least 250' from the antenna without any additional boost.

Pleased. so far!

by

Bought this to use on my toy hauler camper. Received in great shape. Had very little trouble assembling.
Have a 16' telescoping flag pole mounted to camper hitch. Attacked the antenna with g6 cable attached to pole hooked up to tv in jack, turned tv on and set up scan, got same stations I have on outdoor tv antenna for home.
Time will tell if good at campsites as we travel.

Great reception

by

The Televes Ellipse antenna is a very good choice if the sender is 30 or more miles away. It is easy to assemble, even if one has to do it inside an attic.

Reception now Perfect

by

We got this antenna to solve reception problems on certain stations (Houston, TX metro area). We are 28 miles from the transmitter farm. Our reception is now perfect on all the stations we wanted, so the upgrade was a complete success. Assembly was pretty easy, although the assembly instructions with only drawings and no written instructions were a little cryptic. We have it installed on a 22" pole hanging down from the ceiling of our apartment's 3rd floor balcony, giving a decently clear shot at the transmitters. Not a cheap antenna, but seemingly a good one. Completely satisfied.

Good antana.

by

Nice light weight and good signal might have to buy a booster. Easy to put together.

Pleased with the performance

by

So far happ with my reception. I receive more channels than I could with other antennas I've used for the last 5 yrs.
The one problem I had, was assembly from the instructions. I had to go off the finished picture on the box to complete assembly.

Exceeds expectation - Excellent performer!!

by

I replaced an old Mohu in my attic (about 25' above ground) with the Ellipse Mix - I'm pulling signal from 3 locations 257 degrees @ 44 miles to 338 degrees @ 55 miles. Pointing the Ellipse at 300 degrees I get 44 channels all noise free! This antenna is worth every penny!!! The pre amp with 5g filter exceeds my expectation where the Mohu with 5 g filter would get 5g interference from time-to-time...

This is the antenna to replace all your failed antennas!

by

I live less than 15 miles from the OTA distributors, but live in a valley with many thick trees and hills above me and around me. Needless to say inside antenna's have never worked for me, but I have tried numerous outdoor antennas in all levels of elevation and have never received so many channels and with such strong signal! This antenna will definitely be the last antenna you buy! I just got my ATSC 3.0 tuner and that has only continued to increase the value of this antenna. The Televes ellipse mix is the solution to your antenna needs!

Top notch antenna

by

Extremely well-designed antenna and electronics. Variable auto sensing preamp with LTE filtering is very effective. I have a 5G 600 mhz. cell tower about 150 feet away and PBS channel 36 at 604 mhz. plays very well. This station is located 15 miles from me and the major network broadcast stations are 45 miles away and I am getting all perfectly even though I temporarily installed the antenna only 15 feet up to test it. I have heavy tree cover in this location; however, I am fairly high up on a hill. It is winter and the leaves are not on the trees, but there is a fair amount of tall pine trees. This antenna works well with the stations off the side at 15 to 20 degrees as I am using a middle point direction to capture all of the available stations. I chose this antenna because it has a larger main lobe capture area in order to get better off angle reception. It will be located at 50 feet high in the spring.

Great antenna performs well in rural area

Blew me away - from the floor

by

Our house is on the back side of a wooded hill. We suffer from sometimes-patchy reception at night, especially in rain. The Televes 148883 replaces my second HD Stacker from Denny's Antenna Service which was mounted on a ten-foot pole attached to a roof gable. Both worked well for over ten years, but I wanted to try the 148883 for a number of reasons: 1) I no longer need access to low-VHF; 2) to see if the adaptive amplifier would help.
The Televes went together easily once I understood the instructions. As the Stacker would be difficult to remove and harder to replace, I tried the Televes on the lounge floor without re-tuning and was surprised to receive all the old stations, albeit somewhat weaker. In place on the 10' pole, all stations are now substantially stronger than before: (virt ch 31) 32->34dB; (19) 23->30; (25) 25->27; (15) 27->27; (34) 36->36. Without power to the amplifier, channels 8 and 10 dropped to the dB teens; the others remained high. I am impressed.

Very well designed and built.

by

I purchased this antenna to replace two antennas that were combined pointing in slightly different directions. It was late in the day when I installed and it was getting dark so I quickly mounted it and aimed it toward the more distant tower. At first I was not impressed because I was at about the same signal strength that I had with my rigged up setup. The next morning I took some time as I had planned to make more accurate adjustments. I used my compass and accurately aimed for the more distant tower, then moved it ever so slightly toward my close tower. I also brought my level up the ladder and used the two 10mm bolts to adjust the antenna to be level, as it was pointing upward slightly. These adjustments were relatively minor but made a huge difference. I now have the strongest signals that I have ever had, and I have tried several antennas over the years. This is the highest quality antenna that I have owned thus far. The build quality is excellent as well as the design.

A sure thing

by

Great compact antenna, roughly 3' x3'. Lightweight and size is so easy to manage. Reception is best in class for its size. Don't waste time or money on cheap products.

Excellent compact antenna

by

This antenna is absolutely excellent when compared to other top brands. It is well built and it is made of durable plastic, aluminum and stainless steel so that rust will not be a problem. It can be assembled without tools, although the first assembly is a bit harder because the photos of the instructions are too close-up, thus not enabling you to determine what part of the antenna is being illustrated. Careful observation solves this, though. And there are Youtube videos out there for assembly assistance. Its ability to bring in stations is formidable when you consider its compact size. It will work well with or without connecting it to the power supply that feeds its built-in smart pre-amp. Use the pre-amp only if you need more gain. You predominantly see these antennas by Televes on rooftops in Spain (where it is designed & built) and all over Europe. I have two of them. One aimed south towards towers 19 miles away and the other aimed north towards towers 23 miles away.

Antenna Man recommended - Must be good, right?

by

As for actual antenna performance, I'm not able to give an in-depth review. In the antenna's current location, I'm not truly testing its performance. What I can tell you is this is a quality antenna that went together easily and is pulling in all our local signals without the preamp. My goal is to take this antenna to our cabin and test it there, and that is where the preamp will come into play. Assuming it works well, and I suspect it will, I'll do a future review when I purchase a second antenna. Props to SolidSignal; easy transaction and quick shipping.

Excellent Service

by

Excellent service.

Strong Clean Signal

by

Our signal was improved as expected. This is my third Televes antenna purchased, three different models, for three different signal profiles: omnidirectional in Syracuse, narrow focus in the mountains, and moderate focus in a suburb of Syracuse. All three have been great performers.

Great Reception

by

Easy product to put together and install. After installing I rescanned the tv and gained 15 stations over the previous antenna. I now have 3 TV's running off of this antenna with no issues

Spend a little more, you won't be disappointed

by

This is the third antenna I purchased after I decided to cut the cord. The first was a $50 Wally World buy that picked up a few channels but still didn't get one network at all. My second attempt was a name brand antenna which picked up a few more channels but still left me with a pixelated picture from that one distant station. After reading so much about Televes products I ordered this one and it was like flipping a switch on. Suddenly I had all the networks and they were coming in clear. The antenna requires no tools and even the wing nuts are heavy cast metal. The only problem I ran into was the included screw on coax barrel connector, it's too small for most good coax cables. I'd suggest a good quality crimp on connector if possible. You could connect the factory coax connector but you won't be able to push it through the rubber boot.

Works Pretty Good

by

Was delivered in a very timely manner. Works pretty good. Went from 9 channels to 47. My only complaint is it scrambles a little when cars go by, (I'm in a rv park). I would definitely buy again. (Hopefully, I won't need to anytime soon.) And it was very easy to put together

Clearly better for VHS

by

I bought this antenna based on the review by "The Antenna Man" on You Tube. I compared it with my prior choice, the Wingard 8000 Series Omnidirectional. I live in Springboro, OH. It was pretty straightforward to assemble, about 20 min. I placed in my attic, next to the Wingard. I compared reception for both antennae in rainy weather, checking all my stations. It was clear that the Televes was nearly equal to the Wingard but did show superior reception for the one high VHS station that I watch. That station previously had consistent problems when it was raining, but it showed beautiful reception with the Televes. UHF reception was equal. So, all in all, very happy with the purchase.

Televes Ellipse antenna Works Great!

by

The Ellipse antenna worked great, I was able to get 5 more channels & now all 34 channels are pixelation free, with No pixelation! That is what I wanted! Recommend!

Ellipse Mix the way to go for me !!!

by

I use it the Cabin in Northern Wisconsin, I about 45 miles from the closest Transmitter but I get more channels from the Transmitters 60 miles away ( Park Falls) I get 16 channels now we’re before I was only getting 9-10 ,I use a Tablo Quad Tuner/ DVR it works great with this Televes Ellipse Mix. Solid steady signals and a breeze to put together.

Mixed feelings

by

Used on my camper 1st, to the south, got 60 perfect channels, then went 15 miles south and installed at another home to the south and only got 35 channels, and washing in and out on some 9f them. Can't blame it all on the antenna as every location is different, bit I was hoping for better for 160.00 antenna. Also did all new coax to eliminate that ad a issue.

Got all the stations I needed 20 miles away

by

I mounted this to the existing satellite disk pole which already had a ground wire. I was worried about a 90 degree angle of getting all the stations I needed. The Televes Ellipse Mix received them all. Word to the wise, if you have a splitter from the satellite company, make sure the coax cable is attached to the port marked antenna.

Out of the dark ages

by

Replaced rca antenna with rca amp with eclipse. Did not know what I was missing. I went from 12 Channels to 49. Easy assy. Love the power supply for the amp as I have eliminated splitter for my tv and dish receiver

Goodbye Cox Cable

by

Excellent product. Pulls in all the channels I want or need.

SHANNON WAS AWESOME!

by

This antenna solved all of our reception problems, pixelization, loss of sound, loss of signal. Shannon at Solid Signal looked at our issues, location and so forth and gave us her recommendations. She absolutely nailed it and gave my husband and I great support when we made the installation. Wish I had found Shannon two years ago instead of putting up with our reception issues. Don’t hesitate, these folks are great!
