Leaf antennas provide free over-the-air HDTV channels without the need for expensive cable or satellite services. Quality and reception varies based on your distance from broadcast towers, but I have one setup in my guest bedroom and can attest that it delivers dozens of HDTV channels.
Setup is ridiculously simple — just screw the Mohu coax cable into your HDTV and scan for available channels. That’s it. Refer to this coverage map before making your purchase to be sure your home or office is covered. Reversible with a black and a white side so you can choose which color looks best.
Take some time to read this Cord Cutting guide if you’re looking to completely free yourself from the clutches of money sucking cable companies.
An astounding amount of study and engineering went into the design of the Leaf® TV antenna. It wasn’t until one of our engineers decided to convert from cable television to over-the-air broadcasting that we realized that there were no high performance indoor antennas on the market. The Leaf® Antenna was designed by experienced antenna engineers who have been designing antennas for the US military for years (see our sister company GreenWave Scientific).
Uses USB powering option, unlike anything else. The Leaf 50™ is powered via a USB port located on the amplifier, which allows you to power the amplifier using an open USB port on the back of your TV. The advantage of doing so is that the amplifier will only draw power when the TV is turned on, eliminating parasitic power consumption when the amplifier isn’t needed. If you do not have an open USB port on the back of your TV, the Leaf 50™ also includes a power cube that will enable you to power the amplifier using any standard AC wall outlet.Product Dimensions: 9 in X 11.5 in X .04 inCord Length: 16 ftGain: 15 dB
