Ryze-Up Magazine Names ClearStream 2V Best Antenna

AD Ryze picture

Naturally we think that our products are pretty amazing, but it’s always great when we hear it from other people. Larry Cornwell of Ryze-Up Magazine recently reviewed the ClearStream 2V and we were ecstatic with his feedback. Here is a brief summary of his review.

  • “I have been testing the Antennas Direct ClearStream 2V unit and it has been brilliant!”
  • The set up and installation is easy, the signals are strong and the pictures have been clear during the day, night and bad weather.
  • “The ClearStream 2V is one of the best, if not the best antenna on the market…clearly.”

Thank you Larry for the kind words. Be sure to check out Ryze-Up Magazine to read the review in it’s entirety. If you are interested in learning more about the ClearStream 2V or picking one up, simply click HERE.

ClearStream 5 Antenna Tested and Approved by TV Technology

An editor of TV Technology, James E. O’Neal describes a story that is similar to many of our customers. He was looking for a high power, easy to assemble antenna that would provide clear reception for channels that broadcast in high VHF that may be more than 65+ miles away.

Our ClearStream 5 High Gain VHF Antenna was up to O’Neal’s challenge in his country home outside of Washington DC. Here is how he describes his experience from the antenna installation to performance:

The C5 consists of two pieces—a more or less rectangular “loop” with a small box at the bottom sporting an output connector. The other member is similar to the “loop” but is in the form of a sideways “H” affixed to a mesh element that is obviously a reflector, but one that seems more in keeping with what you’d find on a UHF bowtie rig. The hardware supplied consisted of screws, washers, spacers, and U-bolts for mast mounting. There was also a V/U combiner (diplexer) in a nice weatherproof enclosure.

I parked it on the den floor, and with just a little tweaking and shimming, the game reappeared—solid as a rock. The height AGL was now only about three feet. This is one remarkable antenna.

Rather than retreat to the attic, I left the unit on the floor and viewed the remainder of the game. When it ended (my college team won), I uncabled things and journeyed to the attic hatchway. On a hunch, I elected not to take the C5 apart, and found that it easily fit through the 23×29-inch hatch opening.

The C5 is now mounted alongside my bow-tie array and performs very nicely.

Thanks for the glowing review Mr. O’Neal. We hope you enjoy the C5 and those VHF channels for years to come.
