OWNER’S MANUAL — Please read before using this equipment.
Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack Amplified Indoor TV Antenna. Your antenna provides
excellent reception of VHF and UHF broadcast TV channels and FM radio stations in most
listening locations. You can connect the antenna's 75-ohm connector directly to your TV or FM
receiver.

To get the best performance from your
antenna, select a mounting location indoors,
on a flat surface, as high as possible, such as
on top of your TV. Make sure the front of the
antenna faces the general direction of the
nearest television or radio station's
broadcasting antenna.
For the best results, make sure the antenna
is located away from obstructions such as
metal cabinets or bookshelves. Do not place
the antenna near any metal surface such as
a refrigerator, a metal door or wall, or a water
pipe hidden behind a wall. This greatly
reduces the antenna’s ability to receive
signals. ±

1. Connect the 75-ohm coaxial cable to
your TV’s antenna input terminal or your
radio’s FM antenna input terminal.
If your TV has screw terminals for VHF/UHF connection,
connect an optional 75-
to-300 ohm transformer between the
coaxial cable and the VHF/UHF
terminals.
If your TV has a 75-ohm VHF connector and a 300-ohm UHF connector,
connect
an optional signal splitter between the
coaxial cable and the TV’s VHF/UHF
connector.
2. Fully extend the telescoping antenna
elements.
3.
For VHF TV Channels 2-13 and FM radio stations,

In weak-signal areas you might get slightly
better reception by doing the following:
For Channels 7-13 and FM radio, shorten the
telescoping elements slightly.
For all other VHF channels, adjust the angle
of the telescoping elements.
