Received my amazon extreme antenna, now can receive all mediacorp channels plus 3 test channels!

But still need some positioning tho it's an indoor antenna. Looks like my area reception really very low.
Congrats on your successful dvb-t2 reception!

CCK is just north of bukit batok. You need to point your antenna south.

My Amazon extreme antenna also arrived last night.
Was able to receive all the Singapore digital channels.
Location: Telok Blangah mid floor.

This antenna is expensive, but the long cable and flat structure makes it really easy to position. Once I put it near the window, I got all the signals. No need to do any particular adjustments.

Yes. that is the one.

I bought it using the lowest shipping cost, although I don't know how much that is. My wife was the one that placed the order for me.

It was supposed to arrive 15 July. So they were 2 weeks ago of schedule.

those live east have better lluck

is amazon antenna better than ntuc?

Only someone who tested with all the antennae has the answer.

So far four of us who own the amazon antenna can watch local dvb-t2 channels.

Personally, if you use the Amazon antenna, you have the highest chance to watch over the air digital TV. In US, this antenna can pick up signals up to 50Miles. If this is true, in its amplified mode, you have a good chance anywhere in Singapore.

If it doesn't work, when more transmit stations are planted in Singapore, you'll be 1st to get it.

I may be wrong but I think you need a good outdoor antenna, placed at a high location, to receive neighbouring countries' channels.

Hi Bros,

Interested in the Amazon Extreme Performance Antenna.

Below taken from Amazon website:

State of the Art Integrated Preamplifier; Includes 5v USB power inverter with LED power indicator and 110v power adapter

Do you use the power adapter provided (it says 110v) or you use those iPhone charger plug/head? Thanks bro!

The power adapter is rated at 100-240V~ 50-60Hz. You just need a travel adapter that accommodates USA's 2-pin plug.

Or you can simply plug the antenna's usb plug to the TV's usb connector to power the amplifier. The power adapter provides slightly better signal levels and quality.

I got a question, is there a way to connect 2 antenna to the tv?

For better signal quality or so?

MDA has updated its Digital TV website with 2014 series DVB-T2 TVs from manufacturers!
