  Description   Reviews  

Winegard HD-4400 Prostar UHF antenna is compact, light weight and optimized to receive HDTV signals. The Antenna construction has 13 Active Elements. You can receive crystal clear, native, uncompressed HDTV signals up to 30 miles away from the broadcast tower. Perfect for Attic or Outdoor Installation, the Prostar UHF series offers outstanding UHF reception from precise director spacing with efficient corner reflector system. Weak UHF signals captured and reflected with minimal loss to driven element for more uniform gain on UHF frequencies on Channels 14-69. Built-in 300 ohm VHF coupling block. Operation in the Red and Blue Reception zones may require use of a Pre-amplifier.

This Antenna requires some assembly and looks a little Old-School. The reasons we carry it are because (1) It works (2) It's Made in the Good Ole USA. When you find products like these, you have to carry and promote them. Matter of Fact, Most, if not All of the Winegards are Made in the USA. Remember that!

    Bowtie- Is respected as the Master of UHF reception due to the physicality of size. It uses more than one driven element to collect the signal, and the increase in the size of the reflector and number of driven elements (the bowties) directly impacts its gain characteristics. The size correlation is that compared to the electrical wavelength of the frequencies desired in reception. As UHF is higher in frequency and shorter in wavelength, a respectable size antenna can mathematically be gargantuan with respect to frequency, yet physically be manageable for installation. The design is unique to UHF however, as the translation to the larger wavelength of VHF frequencies lends itself impractical in size. For this reason, Bowties are poor performers with regards to VHF frequency reception, but absolutely the best for UHF. Small Bowties are the least obtrusive to aesthetics and are wide beam-width to capture sources of signal diverse in azimuth (direction). Large Bowties simply intercept a large portion of the signal wave as it passes by and is most efficient in its ability to funnel the signal through multiple Driven elements into the cable where you need it. Many Customers have seen success in using combining more than one antenna's signals together (a 2-way splitter used in reverse). For Example; with a UHF for Signals in one Direction and a VHF in another (or two UHF's, or two VHF's, so forth and and so on). This has given many the ability to capture signals in different directions, yet without the need of a Rotor to go back and Forth and in between. Any Model and Make of Antenna(s) can be combined in this manner and will maximize the Gains coming out of all Antennas utilized in this fashion!

    Small Directional
    Small Directional Indoor Outdoor Attic Roof HD TV Antennas

    There is no substitute of height, clear line-of-site and size does matter... The higher the frequency, the higher the loss... Amplifiers do not give you something that you didn't have already...

    The first key to any reception is to get above obstructions that exist between you and your target, as radio frequency reception of any kind (satellite, microwave, Radio and TV) are for the most part "Line-of-Sight" dependant. The fact that some receptions occur without line of sight is due to phenomenon not applicable in this discussion. As you increase your target distance, you increase the territory you must account for in maintaining line-of-sight. What tall building and air traffic exist in this corridor, no one can account for. Aircraft are very good at messing up reception for a number of reasons, even when flying way above the path, again removed for clarity in this discussion. Height, is therefore key in optimizing your ability to capture the best line-of-sight possible to your target.

    Small Directional Antennas are good for HD TV Reception in the 0 to 30 Mile Range...

    For Short Range Direction TV reception, there are typically 3 major types used; Corner Reflector, Yagi and Bowtie, not in any particular order.

    These Antennas are of Low Profile and Typically have a Asthetically Pleasing appearance which can a Plus when dealing with Home-Owner and Condo Associations. Their Small size lends them well to Attic installations to be completely hid from view. Some Considerations in Attic Installations would be; to keep wiring and other metal obstructions away from the Frontal view of the Antenna as not to impede reception in that Direction, and that any Amplifier that you might be using to enhance reception and/or distribution to other TV sets in the house be colocated with the Antenna as to reduce loss of signal unnecessarily due to distance between the Antenna and Amplifier, as well as to offset any loss in Antenna Gain from Roofing Materials used in Construction.

    Indoors or Out, I always try to Mount the Antenna in a Position and Fashion that will lend itself to a maximum Angular view of the Horizon so a sweep with the antenna can be performed through and Past the intended reception Direction(s). This will insure that you are centered on Target (finding the "Sweet-Spot" for them all), and that if there are other Broadcasts available to you that were unknown previously, you can amend/supplement your current Antenna installation to add these New Channels to your Stockpile.
