Review RCA Yagi Outdoor HD TV Antenna
The RCA Yagi outdoor TV antenna is built to pick up free over-the-air TV channels up close or from a distance.

A Yagi design works best when pointed directly at a TV tower.

Most TV towers are clustered together, so mounting it pointed at one location is usually not a problem.

There are Omni-Directional antennas that can pick up stations from any direction but are not as powerful as a Yagi pointed straight at a source.

Omni-Directional antennas are usually used on RVs or campers, while Yagi is used on homes.

The unit comes in a box with the assembly required.

It is not difficult to put together but does need several pieces to be assembled.

The bottom has two bolts that hold the wiring, which goes to a standard cable coaxial line.

The mounting bracket can be screwed onto a flat wall or around a pole and mounted into the air.

In this example, it is mounted onto an existing roof pipe.

Since it is a Yagi antenna, it will need to be pointed directly at the TV tower to get the best results.

This can be done in a few ways. The best way is to Google the location of the tower and point the antenna towards it.

Another common method is to simply turn the antenna until the best reception is on the TV and the unit bolted into place.

After the coaxial cable line is attached to a TV, the channels need to be scanned. Every TV has a different menu system, but somewhere in the menu should be a TV antenna scan for the channel setting.

Using the RCA Yagi, I was able to pick up 117 over-the-air stations at my location.

Of course, the channels are not premium with a lot of old movies and TV shows, but it is all free and works very well.

Summary
The RCA Yagi TV Antenna works very well when set up correctly.

There is some assembly and setup, but it is not difficult for the average DIY type person.

I am impressed by the unit and how many stations it picks up for free.

This includes local stations along with the big networks such as ABC, CBS, FOX, CW, and so on.

For the money, it is well worth it and a good setup for any cord cutter.

I am still testing the unit so far with good results and will update you if anything changes.

As always, be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
