New Outdoor Long-Range Digital TV Antenna

By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributing Editor

ClearStream2 has been introduced as the latest in the ClearStream series of HDTV antennas. Introduced by Antennas Direct, the small 10” by 20” size and efficient design and features as well as its advanced computer software give it a huge competitive edge.

The antennas offer consistent high gain across the entire DTV spectrum, permitting up to 98 percent of the available broadcast signal to reach the incoming antenna cable without being lost to impedance mismatches.
This is a drastic improvement compared with other small antennas that may only catch 10 percent of the signal.
All available UHF channels and higher level VHF frequencies within an approximate range of 55 miles are received by the ClearStream2 Dual Loop design, which is built for extra strength and durability with anodized aluminum for corrosion resistance and for easy assembly.
ClearStream2 also sends TV signals from broadcast towers that are located quite a distance from each other without requiring an antenna rotor (which would usually be recommended when TV towers are spaced more than 30 degrees apart). The 90 degree beamwidth pattern of the new antenna (front signal searching area) utilizes the latest generation 4 and 5 ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) chipsets in newer digital and HDTV tuners that mitigate multi-path signals (bounced signals that confuse the tuner) for digitally perfect multiple station signals. These antennas will be available in early March, while the mid- and ultra long-range designs in this series will follow a short time later.
President of Antennas Direct, Richard Schneider commented, “We’ve found ourselves right in the middle of a thriving resurgence of Over-The-Air (OTA) antennas. Our business is doubling about every 180 days. And HDTV sales have had a great deal to do with our sales increases, along with our 90 day ‘No Fault’ guarantee. If our antenna doesn’t do for you what we say it will, send it back and get a refund.”
