The Winegard HD-7697P is an excellent antenna for weak reception areas that are more than 25 miles away from the desired TV stations.
The Winegard High Definition-Platinum model HD-7697P VHF-HI/UHF TV antenna is an excellent choice for suburban to deep fringe reception areas. The HD-7697P has red hot performance on channels (7-69) and has 2-3dB more gain than even the best antennas that electronic and home improvement stores sell. And unlike most other antennas, Winegard High Definition-Platinum Series TV antennas have a built-on weatherproof balun transformer cartridge for connection to a 75 ohm coax cable downlead. A separate matching transformer is not required.
Like all Winegard High Definition-Platinum Series TV antennas, the HD-7697P can survive even the harshest weather conditions. Typical low-end antennas simply fall apart over time due to high winds and even the lightest icing, but the HD-7697P has been engineered for extra strength with high impact ABS girder design element support insulators to help combat these harsh weather conditions. This is why Winegard High Definition-Platinum Series TV antennas can last more than 15 years, unlike other antennas that typically last half as long.
