It is only $5.99 from lazada

https://www.lazada.sg/w16yg-indoor-d...-56831843.html
You need to check out to know the final price to pay. Add 2.99 for shipping so total is $8.98. If you want free shipping, delivery is by mid JAN next year.

The delivery time is similar to alibaba/aliexpress.

For low cost items, it makes no sense to pay for delivery.

You are right. Also take note 16dB gain is only with the amplifier. But this is not included in the package. Effectively, this is same as those $2 antenna, which is 5dB type of antenna.

You do understand what is analogue switch-off? Starhub cable won't be carrying analogue TV by the end of 2018 also. So u want to pay a few hundreds to pull SCV cable to use for a year.
Starhub cable not yet confirm end 2018. Anyway, analog TV signal already extended to end 31 DEC2018 as announced.

They just waiting for Mediacorp to switch off together. They have already phased out their analogue set-top box. Next to go - Supersports Arena (Analog)

For Singapore, most case you will need antenna more then $2.
I'm also low floor. Still getting buzzing issues with connections. I got the Funke antenna at Giant for $50+, it's suitable for indoor and outdoor antenna.

This antenna manages to receive malaysia digital channels as well.

However, signal still quite weak as my low floor is blocked by many tress and buildings.
Most of the time when F-15SG fly pass (almost daily), the reception will go haywire.Construction works of hacking also affects it.

If the signal strength/quality is too low, you will face this problem.
You can confirm it by looking at the channel information.

Try to re-position your antenna so that the signal strength is higher, you can use the channel information page to help you for the readings.

$2.94 from lazada, free shipping, sometimes can get from ebay at less than S$2.

http://www.lazada.sg/5dbi-freeview-d...-10349711.html

This one is better at $8, higher gain, nicer shap, with a strong magnet.

It is cheaper to buy online, local shops are selling them at about double the price.

e.g you can get the $8 antenna for $13 in sim lim tower. see post #1217

Yap you are right.
Further more if manufacturing defect can argue for a replacement.
The guy can also offer other solutions as it has tonnes of stuff there in his shop.
BTW the cost is $12 only and not $13 as in the earlier quote.
