NICE AND EASY: How do you aim the Flatwave Air (FL6550A) antenna?

It’s easier than you think. The side with the logo points toward the towers. The large flat surface should have a good view of the towers. If you’re using a compass, place it so that the flat surface is perpendicular to the needle and then use the needle to point your way.

It seems simple, but since there’s been a bit of confusion, we thought it best to clear it up.
