Daily Two Cents

December 16, 2017 - When is an antenna not an antenna? When it’s the ClearStream VIEW Amplified UHF/VHF Indoor TV Antenna, is the answer. We all know what to expect when looking at an over-the-air antenna (OTA), right? If it’s indoors it’s most likely rectangular and has a flat appearance and is found attached to the wall near the TV.
