It can't.
I have one. I even took it up on the roof and set it up just to see. 
Pointed it toward Philadelphia; nothing
Pointed it toward Baltimore; just an occasional blast of unintelligible 
bits on the screen.
It takes a big yagi or a  parabolic UHF antenna [mine is 30 feet up] for 
that distance.
I also took my Silver Sensor up there too. Same results.
