I use it in Ottawa, I get about 15 channels; there aren't as many TV antenna's here as say compared to Toronto, so do not expect many channels if you know the TV antenna's are more then 100km away from your location.

Have been using for 2 years after ditching cable and haven't looked back. If you buy and don't pay cable for 3 months, you are still ahead.

Goodbye Rogers, forever.

Great for local HD over-the-air broadcasts, perched innocuously up on our roof. Also have Netflix and ooma telo - now spend less than $40/month for internet + TV + phone. Awesome!

HASH(0xa235eb58) out of 5 stars Incredibly good antenna Aug. 20 2008
By picaman - Published on Amazon.com

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.

HASH(0xa235ee88) out of 5 stars Three singal bands, this one does two Nov. 2 2009
By Bryce Nesbitt - Published on Amazon.com
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).

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.

HASH(0xa235ef6c) out of 5 stars Excellent Results! April 18 2009
By J. Huff - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa4c1d0fc) out of 5 stars Did I say this antenna is very ATTRACTIVE ! ;-) Sept. 2 2010
By L. Owens - Published on Amazon.com

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 !

Except for the fact that now i am longing for an HD TV ~ ;-)


I have since gotten an HD TV AND a projector HD TV and an HDMI THX home theater unit... I can't tell you how wonderful it is to see the HD shows that the antenna pulls in. Nicer looking than anything coming over a cable.

In addition, i took the antenna out of my south facing window and we put it on the roof, and now we get 153 !!!! channels.

Meanwhile... before putting this on the roof, we got an expensive Orca antenna with rotary capability and supposedly is good for 150 miles !!!
The rotation unit was DOA... and the very few stations pulled in had weak signals...

So we put this up there in the interim of finding something else.

However, this works so very well, and almost every station is pulled in with a strong signal, we are not going to get anything else !

I do have to mention that we added a Clearstream CV 2 reflector assembly, a week after we put it up. ( Costs $19.95) for VHF stations.

Before we did that, it only got 142 stations, not 153 ;[)

HASH(0xa4c1d438) out of 5 stars A Great Little Antenna April 18 2009
By ADR - Published on Amazon.com
I usually don't leave reviews for the products I have purchased, good or bad experiences. But I was so happy with this antenna that I wanted to give my opinion of it.

I have purchased several antennas with no luck. I have bought antennas online and 2 or 3 from Wal-Mart and have returned all of them because they just didn't work for me. After reading the reviews of the Clearstream2 antenna, I thought why not. The reviews looked pretty good.

I ordered this for my mother. Her location is almost centered between Lexington KY, Louisville KY and Cincinnati OH. We installed this about 3 feet above the roof and received Lexington & Cincinnati all UHF channels, but nothing from Louisville. A few days ago one of the Lexington channels converted to digital. They are using a VHF High frequency channel and she was unable to get this. I started turning the antenna in hopes it would make a difference and boy what a difference. Not only did it bring in the VHF channel that's located about 36 miles away with a signal strength between 68-69, but she now gets the Louisville channels located 58-60 miles away with a signal strength of 70-80. The other Lexington channels have a strength of 83-85 and the Cincinnati channels located 47-50 miles away have a signal strength 75-83. In total she now picks up over 35 channels.

This is a great little antenna, and very powerful for it's size. I'm definitely glad I took a chance on this one, I sure don't regret it. If you don't get a picture at first, be sure and turn it to every possible direction before you give up on it, that seems to be the key. Hope this helps.
