April Showers are Here! Is Your Outdoor HDTV Antenna Weathering the Elements?

April showers bring May flowers! This goes without saying because we are experiencing some of the rainiest days across our great nation. Between these torrential downpours, and as a precautionary measure to stay informed of severe weather coming your way, we suggest you check on your outdoor TV antenna.

Pulling out the ladder and cleaning the gutters isn’t necessarily everyone’s idea of a good time, so make the most of it and take a few minutes to check on your antenna. Your TV antenna serves you well, so it deserves a little love and care once or twice a year. Here are a few quick tips to help you get started. Remove any leaves or debris from the antenna. Is your antenna still facing the largest cluster of transmitting towers? Check out Antenna Point, our free app that you can download to your smartphone. Make sure all your cable connections are tight and that your antenna is secure on the mast. Checking your antenna will not only give you peace of mind, but also the best possible reception.

Interested in getting a new outdoor antenna? Let us introduce you to our latest advanced design, the ClearStream FUSION Amplified UHF/VHF TV Antenna. It hides in plain sight thanks to its thin, low-profile design. It is multi-directional and has a range of 60+ miles, so you can install it in your attic or on the roof for the best long-range TV signals. The ClearStream FUSION is whole home ready, so you can connect it to every TV in your home and it includes a ClearStream 20dB In-Line Amplifier system that provides maximum signal reception, so you’ll receive more TV channels.

Stay safe when getting on your roof, and remember, May flowers will be here before you know it! Thankfully, with an HDTV antenna, TV is free over-the-air all-year round!
