Advancements in antenna efficiency allows up to 98% of the available broadcast
signal to actually reach the incoming antenna cable rather than being lost to
The patented ClearStream4
Tapered Loop design receives UHF channels and higher level VHF frequencies with
a range of about 50 miles. They are engineered for extra strength and
durability, using anodized aluminum for corrosion resistance and are easy to
assemble. The ClearStream2 delivers TV signals from widely located
(spaced) broadcast towers. The C4 offers flexible aiming characteristics with
an extremely wide 70 degree beamwidth, while still providing resistance to

Is this a digital
antenna? Analog and digital signals are broadcast on VHF
and UHF frequencies, so all antennas can pick up digital signals. Its
more a matter of getting an antenna that covers the frequencies that your
stations are broadcast on (VHF/UHF). This is a bit confusing when
manufacturers list an antenna as "Digital Ready", or "HD Antenna",
but whether they are labeled this way or not, all antennas have this
How much signal will I lose if I put
this in my attic? You will lose 40-50% of your signal
strength when placing an antenna in an attic that is covered by plywood and
asphalt shingles. Even more signal is lost with foil covered
insulation, metal roofs and concrete structures. Beyond a range of
30-35 miles an attic installation is generally not recommended.
Because of the high signal loss of an attic installation, an antenna with twice
the range is needed to receive the same amount of signal. Digital
reception has a much higher threshold of signal strength than analog reception.
Do I need a rotator? It
depends on how wide a direction your antenna covers. This feature is
called the beam width. The average antenna has a beam width of 35
degrees, out of 360. Go to a site like www.tvfool.com or www.antennaweb.org
and look at the compass orientation. If the difference in degrees
between all your desired stations is great than your antennas beam width, then
you will need a rotator. Keep in mind that larger antennas that have
a boom length over 131 inches need a rotator that can withstand the windload
and torque we suggest the CM9521.
the difference between a directional, multidirectional and omnidirectional
antenna? Directional antennas pick up from a narrow
direction usually around 40 degrees wide out of 360 and is best for long range
reception. Multidirectional antennas have a wide beam width usually
60-90 degrees, allowing them to receive stations that are coming from multiple
directions. Omnidirectional antennas receive signal from all directions, and
have the shortest range.

Recent Review: Mike Riordan - Salt Lake City, UT - 5/13/2014 I have both the C2 and the C4.For local TV viewing both are roughly the same.Below I will point out the minute differences.
I have both the C2 and the C4.For local TV viewing both are roughly the same.Below I will point out the minute differences. Mike Riordan - Salt Lake City, UT - 5/13/2014 10:51:18 PM I find the C4 a little bit more directive than the C2. In some cases the C2 makes it easy to get a weak signal than the C4.I like them and keeping them both.
This little antenna works great !!!! RRR - Logansport, IN - 3/25/2014 3:18:23 PM Installed this little antenna on tripod with u-100 rotor and 10g202 preamp, approx 25` high on roof. Getting Indy stations 70 plus miles away. Including Indy ch 13.1,2,3 hi-vhf! Antenna was very easy to assemble and install. One last thing,Solid Signal`s service,online ordering and shipping is excellent.
Fantastic! raven - Wautoma, WI - 9/27/2013 4:51:28 PM I live 90 miles north of Madson, WI. As all of Madison';s stations are UHF I thought I would give this a try. I live in a rural area with lots of trees & high winds. I';ve had this for a little ver a year now and I get all of Madison';s channels plus some of Wausau';s!
Greatproduct. Easy to install Carole - Mannsville, sville NY - 3/28/2013 Easy to install. We got about 15 channels including network channels. My neighbor was impressed with it and he bought one also.
This thing really works. dave - Big Lake Mn., Big Lake Mn. - 9/27/2012 I did some things with this antenna Im told you are not supposed to do. I have 150 feet of coax cable and then spilt to 3 tvs. No amplifiers or boosters were used. I am 35 miles from most of the broadcast towers yet still get more channels than I did before plus almost all of them come in at full strength on my tv signal meter. The antenna is mounted outdoors about 10 feet high overlooking an ope
C4 clearsream HDTV antennas DAVE - Jonesville, sville Ind - 6/21/2012 Great unitHave used for over 4 years. I live 1/2 way between Louisville KY and Indianapolis In. Weak signal from both. I use Direct TV for most my viewing.I use this unit for access tochannel not available on sat.Direct tv gives me Indy but not Louisville. From Louisville I can get.Example 3.1 3.2 3.3 3.4I added a 2nd same antenna same mount directly to the back side of the first. Y conne
Too good to be true AJ - Houston, TX - 5/2/2012 I have this product for more than 4 years. It did not even moved from its place. First installation and it is still there. Signal is excellent. This product has been through Harricane Rita and everyday texas heat and torture. Has not broken yet. Actually still looks new. and like I said before signal is excellent and Price is sweet. I recommend it every one. In houston I pick up almost 75 channe
Only way to get constant mountain signal Fred the mounta - Fries Virginia, Fries Virginia - 2/26/2012 Tried every antenna there was. This is the only one that worked.With the excebtion of the DB8.
Compact Works Well etc. Doug - Sun City, ty AZ - 3/9/2011 The vertical desigh makes it easy to mount my weather station on the same mast at the same level without having the weather station either above or below the antenna.The vertical design does not appeal to birds to use as a perch.They seem to prefer the neighbors horizontal antenna instead. Covers all of the VHF/UHF band currently in use for DTV broadcasts.
Solid! Chester - Valencia, ia CA - 2/1/2011 I started TV antenna project more than a year ago but was stuck with Ladder.It gives me pretty good reception even just facing window in the room at upstairs but my wife hates to see the huge thing in her cozy office room and I wanted to completely replace all tv connection to timewarner cable to air.The only problem for me was ladder.My two story house is small but tall and I needed a tall
