    "This is one of the top 10 outdoor tv antennas for me. As a heavy television watcher, i have bought a lot of antennas in the past because each time, i wasnt satisfied with the quality i get. but this one stayed and i have used it for a long period of time. I suggest you check it out if you want to have a stable and reliable signal."
