Product Description

The ClearStream 2 Antenna Receives Free Over-The-Air Digital and HD Programming with NO Monthly Cable or Satellite Fees. The ClearStream 2 UHF Antenna is also capable of short range high VHF reception. Stunningly efficient, the ClearStream 2 is ninety percent smaller than legacy antennas, yet has the range and power normally found in antennas up to 10X’s the size. Advanced design software allows these 10-Inch X 20-Inch antennas to be smaller and more powerful across the entire UHF DTV spectrum offering consistently high gain. The advanced design allows up to 98% of the available broadcast signal to actually reach the incoming antenna cable rather than being lost to impedance mismatches. The patented ClearStream 2 Tapered Loop design receives UHF channels with a range of up to 50 miles. It is engineered for strength and durability using anodized aluminum for corrosion resistance. The ClearStream 2 delivers DTV signals from widely located (spaced) broadcast towers. It offers forgiving aiming characteristics with a wide, 70 degree beam width, while still providing resistance to multi-path interference. The ClearStream 2 delivers digitally perfect signals without the need for rotation.

Verified Purchase
I live in New York City about 14 miles north of stations broadcasting from the Empire State Building. I tried indoor antennas, both the Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna for Off-Air HDTV Reception and the RCA ANT525 AMPLIFIED ANTENNA, neither of which would pull in stations consistently even when I was constantly moving the antenna to maximize reception. The signal quality was constantly bouncing between 10% and ~80%, so stations were constantly cutting in and out.

I purchased this antenna when it was recommended by the telephone agent at AntennasDirect.com. She recommended it for me over the Antennas Direct DB2 Multi Directional HDTV Antenna because this one was somewhat less directional, and smaller in size.

All I can say is, WOW. I have 100% signal strength on nearly all channels, with a consistent 85% - 100% signal quality. It pulls in 24 HD stations (more than the ones I tried before) without moving the antenna at all, and with no extra amplification. I am using it as an internal antenna -- it's just placed by the window.

This antenna is worth every penny I paid for it, and more. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

To understand this antenna, you have to understand the post-transition digital frequencies. this antenna may or may not cover the channels you want, depending on the stations in your area. The early DTV stations all used UHF, so people starting making antennas just for UHF, like this one. The problem is, now a number of stations have switched back to VHF. The full list is:

* Low VHF (RF Channels 2-6)
* High VHF (RF Channels 7-13)
* Core UHF (RF Channels 14-51)
* UHF (RF Channels 52-69 -- and obsolete once transition is complete)

In our area for example KGO 7 broadcasts on RF channel 7 (VHF), but KTVU 2 broadcasts on channel 44 Z (UHF). Use "antenna web" to find the proper transmit channels for the stations you care about. (RF stands for radio frequency).

Note:
This antenna is optimized for UHF only. It may work for strong VHF stations, if you're lucky.
For many people an amplified antenna is either a waste or harmful.
This antenna does not have an amplifier. That's a good thing for many.

I had excellent results with the this antenna. The antennaweb.org website recommended a medium range antenna with a pre-amp as I am about 35 miles away from the antenna farm in Dallas/Fort Worth. Just to try it out I set the antenna on our dresser and connected to our new LCD TV in the bedroom on the far side of the house. I got a clear signal instantly with killer high definition. No preamp, antenna indoors.

I then took the antenna and mounted it on the old satellite dish pole that was already on our roof from the previous owner. I disconnected the Time Warner cable where it comes into the house and connected the Clearstream2 antenna there. All 8 TV's in our house get crystal clear digital pictures, and the pre-amp is NOT connected.

In case anyone is wondering, I get 66 channels in DFW right now, 42 of which are digital. If everyone gets on this band wagon, ESPN, CNN, MSNBC, and the other "cable/satellite only" channels will have to go to broadcast or possibly be looking at getting shut down.

This form of over the air TV totally rocks over what we had in the 70's! Cable and satellite can't even hold a candle to the high definition picture quality. As a bonus, the audio is in true Dolby 5.1 or better. We will NEVER go back to cable again, except for out internet. Our Time Warner bill is now $41 for high speed internet only and we will be looking at other options for that too real soon.

I give this product five stars and would recommend anyone to get it.

Hi,

Tech Challenged Senior Female here, so keep that in mind.

Not only tech challenged, but financially challenged too.

Which is why, when my cable company offered me a digital package for only $20/mth, and HD for $40 mth ) I declined. After all, all i had was an old zenith large screen TV, hooked to a VCR and old DVD player and the basic cable from my cable company, hooked through an entry level Yamaha Home Theater receiver ( Trust me i had to learn all this as i went along, but I do sound techy, eh? lol )

This changed, when I won a TCD648250B model Tivo on Ebay, that records HD, and has THX sound capability.
I started to long for the idea of recording shows that I couldn't get.

When trying to hook through the TiVO to the VCR, I noticed that instead of a cable in and cable out jack on the TiVO unit that it had a cable in and ALSO an ANTENNA IN. So i thought, why not give the HD antenna a shot, before, perhaps, breaking down and ordering digital cable that I could ill afford.

Hence the search for an antenna

I received this antenna in the afternoon, it took me all of 10 minutes to put it together with a Phillips screwdriver, using this short cable, the type the cable company uses, that I happened to have around, who remembers why?

I then screwed it onto the back of my TiVO to the antenna jack in.

Stuffed it behind the big screen TV, so it wouldn't show to the room, ( another 10 minutes ) did a channel scan...( that took the longest time )

and VOILA !! 128 channels found !

I then proceeded to look up some HD movies and told the TiVO to record them, and now enjoy HD THX movies at night.

Bravo Clearstream!! You're my Heroes !
