TV-38 Terrestrial VHF/UHF/FM Outdoor Antenna
Terrestrial antennas are still alive and well thanks to local HDTV transmissions. While the vast majority of households now have cable or DSS providing local service, many of us have opted to rely on a good old fashioned roof-top antenna. Terk has introduced a new line of terrestrial antennas particularly for today's HDTV consumers. The TV-38 and TV-36 antennas are designed to receive UHF/VHF/FM signals, while the TV-32 is a UHF-only design and is considerably smaller than its bigger brothers. We installed the new Terk TV-38 outdoor antenna with a clear line-of-sight to Mount Wilson, the location where all the major transmitters are located in the Los Angeles area. We mounted the antenna on our existing rotor which allowed us to fine tune the signal for each channel. Installation was simple and all of the hardware needed to mount the antenna was included. As always, we recommend anchoring down the mast using guy wire to prevent the wind from knocking it over during bad weather.
The TV-38 is constructed of high-tensile aluminum, making it ideal in extreme weather conditions where wind, ice and snow might otherwise cause problems. The antenna elements are protected with a high-quality polymer finish to minimize oxidation on the aluminum surface.
The antenna ships in an eight foot long box which is only two-thirds the length of the fully assembled structure. The antenna is very simple to assemble and only requires a screw driver and an adjustable wrench. The package includes pre-assembled segments that need to be bolted together. The elements snap into place creating the large span. The end result is a 9 foot wide by 12 foot long antenna. The package includes the antenna, chimney mount, wall mount, universal mount, 5-foot mast, matching transformer (300 ohm to 75 ohm) and instructions. This rather large 43 element antenna only weighs about 10 pounds.
