  • How do I run a channel scan?

    Using the television remote, select “Menu” and then “Settings.” Then, select “Channel Setup.” Select “Antenna” or “Air,” depending on your TV. Make sure you are not on “Cable.” Select “Channel Search” or “Channel Scan.” Keep in mind that steps to perform a channel scan may vary. If the wording in your TV differs from the options shown, refer to your TV user manual for help.

    Tip: Running a channel scan is NOT the same as pressing Channel UP/DOWN on your remote.

  • When do I need to run a channel scan?

    To receive maximum programming, you have to run a channel scan after setting up the antenna. To keep your channel line-up up-to-date, it is a good idea to run a channel scan monthly and anytime a channel is lost.
  • How do I know where the signal is strongest?

    After connecting the coax cable to the “Antenna In” port on the TV, run a channel scan. Try the antenna in different locations, making sure to run a channel scan every time you move the antenna. Finding TV signal is similar to cell phone coverage. Sometimes walking a few feet can make a difference. The less obstructions and the higher the antenna is mounted, the better chance of receiving a strong signal.
  • How do I set up the FlatWave antenna?

    1. Place the antenna in the desired location.
    2. Connect the coax cable coming from the FlatWave mini antenna to the “Antenna In” coax port on your TV.
    3. Run a channel scan.
  • Where should I mount the antenna?

    Hang the antenna on a window or a wall, or lay it flat on a table. For maximum reception, point the antenna at the broadcast tower of stations you want to receive. Keep in mind that digital signal may bounce off of objects. Run a channel scan each time you reposition the antenna, and mount the antenna wherever you receive the strongest signal.
  • Is there anywhere that the antenna shouldn’t be mounted?

    The antenna is designed for indoor use only. The FlatWave antenna is not meant to be mounted outdoors or in the attic.
  • Does the FlatWave antenna work with any TV?

    The FlatWave antenna works with any TV or device that has an ATSC tuner. Devices that have built-in ATSC tuners include TVs, laptops, PCs, some satellite receivers, and digital recording devices (DVRs).

    Tip: Any television manufactured after March 1, 2007 is required by U.S. government to have an ATSC tuner. If your TV menu has an option for scanning for digital channels, then your television has an ATSC tuner.

  • Can I connect the FlatWave antenna to multiple televisions?

    No — the FlatWave antenna is designed to connect to a single television. Splitting the signal between multiple TVs will degrade the signal.
  • What is the difference between the FL-5000, FL5000H and the FL5000S?

    The FL-5000, FL5000H and FL5000S are the exact same antenna. The only difference is the packaging.
  • What channels can the FlatWave antenna receive?

    The antenna may receive all available local programming. The antenna can receive programming from all of the major local broadcast networks (e.g. ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS) plus additional networks (Qubo, ION, The CW, This TV, MyNetworkTV, Azteca, Telefutura, Univision, and Telemundo). The FlatWave antenna can also receive local news, weather, and educational programs that satellite and cable don’t offer.
  • How many channels will I receive with the FlatWave antenna?

    The number of channels will vary from location to location. Generally, if you live in or near a metropolitan area, you will receive more channels than if you live outside a metropolitan area. Keep in mind that antenna reception may vary based on terrain (including trees, buildings, hills, and mountains). The fewer obstructions, the better your chance for receiving strong digital signals.
  • How can I find out what channels are broadcast in my area?

    Check out On this site, you can enter your address and get listing of likely channels available in your area.
  • Do I need to pay for programming?

    No — local programming received through an over-the-air antenna is free!

  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
