This is a review of the 1byone 85 Miles Digital Amplified HDTV With VHF And UHF Band Antenna. If you didn't already see the TV antenna side by side comparison page, I recommend you look at that page also. There you can compare the results of this antenna with many other antennas in all shapes and sizes.

It's interesting to note that (for me anyway) the performance was better when I didn't use the included amplifier.

Good
  • No real assembly was required other than mounting
  • The reception is very good
  • It's pretty light
Bad
  • I don't know if it was just mine but the rear mounting bracket was very hard to open - I had to use some tools to get it open
  • It got better reception when I didn't use the included amplifier
What's Included
  • See the "Package Include" item in the "Some descriptive notes from Amazon" section
Some descriptive notes from Amazon

Over-the-air broadcasts are transmitted in uncompressed full HD (1080P), ultra HD (4K) and 3D channels; far surpassing what cable and satellite offer. Many local broadcasts are digitally aired in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound giving you the ultimate sound stage for watching live television.

About these results

1) Test method
Each antenna was tested in the same location and the results were recorded using a Winegard signal strength meter.

2) Frequencies tested
I am only able to test the frequencies in my area.

3) What the numbers mean
Stationary Number
The antenna was not rotated while the frequencies were tested. If a tested frequency showed a reading, it increased this number by 1.

Stationary Sum
The antenna was not rotated while the frequencies were tested. I added all the signal strengths together. A higher number means stronger signals are delivered to your TV.

Max Number
The antenna was rotated for each frequency to get the maximum possible signal. If a tested frequency showed a reading, it increased this number by 1.

Max Sum
The antenna was rotated for each frequency to get the maximum possible signal. I added all the signal strengths together. A higher number means stronger signals are delivered to your TV.

4) Directional/Non-directional
If the antenna is a non-directional type, only one test was needed because rotating the antenna wouldn't change the readings. This means the stationary and max numbers are the same.

5) Test timing
Because real world conditions change, if I tested an antenna again I'm sure the numbers would be slightly different. I'm also quite confident the different readings wouldn't be enough to significantly change the overall results.

If you have any question about how the tests were done feel free to contact me.
