About HD Frequency

Founded in 2011 in New York, HD Frequency is an innovative television antenna manufacturer offering premium digital antennas. We specialize in high-definition (HD) antennas which pull in free television programming over local UHV and VHF broadcasts.

Our company was born from the personal experience of founder Josh McDonnell, a self-proclaimed "extreme gadget guy" and IT professional with an master’s degree in Information Technology. He cut the cord in 2010 and used to over 7 different antennas only to realize that the antennas on the market today are still not truly optimized for this newer Digital UHF/VHF broadcasts. He realized he needed to design and build his own to get the best possible reception.

Josh developed the Cable Cutter and Cable Cutter Mini with a team of highly specialized Radio Frequency engineers including a rocket scientist and PhD physicist. Together the group of experts designed a pair of premium antennae that routinely out-perform many of the leading antennas on the market today. By putting form and optimal signal performance at the focus of our engineering efforts, our antennas display a sleek and modern industrial design that performs incredibly well and will last for years.

In January of 2015, we launched our third antenna – the Cable Cutter Aerowave – at the CES show in Las Vegas. The Aerowave has outperformed its mid-range competitors by up to 30% and we credit this to its unique patented design.

We are proud to say that our commitment to high quality manufacturing resulted in a premium product that is the most durable antenna line on the market today. All of the Cable Cutter antennae were designed and optimized for local HD broadcast television.
