Winegard's Flagship FlatWave® Amped Antenna Is The Most Advanced Indoor HDTV Antenna

BURLINGTON, Iowa, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Winegard today launched a brand new amplified version of its high tech FlatWave® over-the-air indoor HDTV antenna called the FlatWave Amped. The multi-directional amplified antenna draws in dual band (VHF/UHF) HDTV broadcast signals up to 50 miles away.  The FlatWave Amped is the most technologically advanced and highest performing HD antenna of its kind on the market today.

"This newest member of our patented FlatWave HDTV antenna family is the best one yet," said Winegard National Sales Manager Grant Whipple. "We have set a new standard for amplifier performance and the Amped is the first antenna to utilize this technology.  The Amped is one of very few indoor dual band antennas on the market, which means consumers don't have to miss out on a major network that other UHF-only indoor antennas may experience.

"Designed with our revolutionary Clear Circuit Technology™, the embedded amplifier is able to amplify 100 percent of the signal at the antenna to maximize channel reception and minimize pixilation and dropouts for the best viewing experience possible, something inline amplifiers can't achieve," explained Whipple.  

This is known as pre-amplification, something Winegard founder John Winegard developed more than 50 years ago.

This groundbreaking amplifier technology lowers the noise floor to an unprecedented 1.0 dB typical, which is 200 percent to 400 percent lower than competing amplifiers.  That translates to antenna performance that matches an antenna 2 to 3 times larger and provides crystal clear HDTV pictures. 

The razor-thin FlatWave Amped measures just 13 in. by 12 in. and comes with an 18.5 ft white coaxial cable and an embedded digital amplifier that delivers the same high quality, free true HDTV picture of the original. FlatWave Amped retails for $89.99 and is available online directly from Winegard at www.GetFreeTV.com.

Weighing in at just over two ounces, FlatWave Amped is black on one side and white on the other so it fits into virtually any home decor. It's as easy to install as connecting the coaxial cable to your flat screen HDTV, hanging the Amped on a window or a wall, plugging in the energy saving USB power cable, and running a simple channel scan. It takes less than five minutes to install in any room of your home.
