    Excellent antenna nothing else needed

    Today I'm humbled by the quality of a product. I write this review for the people who are sceptical of all the hype given to an item sold by a company. I went into this venture pessimistically already thinking the antenna wasn't going to stack up to the claims of the company and when I did get the antenna up (which was at the peak of a Gable on my two story home 30ft in the air! SCARY!) loe and behold it didn't work! Figures after all that work hooking it up with an antenna preamp and mounting it to the mast and rotor from the old antenna I turn the TV on and Bam! Two channels. Well after messing with it for two days (up and down the ladder several times) I was ready to toss it all in the garbage. But before I did I reached out to an electronics repair man who also installed antennas (thought they died out with the analog tv) I told him my tale of whoa and he then instructed me to remove any gagets on the coax cable between the antenna and the tv and run the coax straight to the tv (apparently he had more faith in the antenna than I did) Well with apprehension I did and after couple of more times up and down the ladder I was ready to be disillusioned again so on goes the tv,... set the channel finder and wait and count,,,1,,2,,10,,,20,,,30!!,,,40!!! CHANNELS, HOLY antenna batman! every channel plus more. I was to say the least (which I didn't here) FLABBERGASTED! l had to sit down from the onslot of channels parading across my TV all of them crystal clear and strong signals. Keep in mind I live in a city 30 miles away from the stations at least, with telephone and power wires and trees and big buildings around me. So I definitely can't make this story short but I felt obligated to pay respect where respect is dew. If you're looking for a antenna that lives up to it's name Clearstream is it, give it a chance, you can always take it back, but I don't think you will, trust me "mister I thought I knew it all" I gotta get back to whatchin my 40 plus channels yeah baby! Have a terrific day cause I am, thanks Clearstream I'll never doubt you again.

    Like a lot of people I am tired of cable prices. I went to a streaming service, but I needed to fill in some of the missing local channels Sling Blue doesn't give me. Enter the ClearStream 4MAX. I live in Manchester, NH, so the Boston stations I'm trying to pull in are about 50-60 miles away, due SE through rolling, granite filled hills. When I mounted it in the optimal location, I pulled in 42 channels with only one (CBS) having intermittent reception issues. ABC, NBC and FOX come in nice and clear. I'm going to try a 20db booster to see if I can clean up CBS. Just like your dad's or granddad's antenna, placement outdoors and up high is best. Due to the small size and light weight, I was able to mount this outside my third floor attic window from inside the house. No ladders involved, thankfully. I have it split between two TVs on a 25 foot run from the antenna into a 10db booster/splitter and 10 foot runs to each TV with no degradation in signal. My only gripe (a minor one) is that the mounting hardware could have had the same socket size, being that the mounting nuts and the bracket bolts were only one size apart. It was more than I really wanted to spend on an antenna, but it works and is less than a month of cable service.

    Replace cable tv for FREE TV

    I had three Free TV antennas and replaced them for the ClearStream antenna. Connected it to the location where a dish was located, not in use. My son removed the dish, connected the antenna to the metal arm used for the org dish. Connected cable, there were three, found one that worked. Could only get 11 channels. I called the help number, which was on a Sunday, and the person was great. He walked through how to direct the antenna to the right direction, location to receive the signals. Then explaned I needed to by pass the two small boxes on the outside of the house and conncect the cable directly into the one cable that was going inside the house. These are coaxial cables. The house was pre-wired for the dish. I now have all rooms running of the ClearStream antenna and get over 66 channels. With my Amazon Prime who needs dish!!! Oh I changed from Direct TV to Free TV three years ago and saved over 250.00 a month for the service. Thank you.

    Mixed feelings

    This antennae feels very solid and is heavier than i thought. I did return mine because i have put ota on hold until summer when i can put up a tower. This antennae did pick up all of my available channels in my area just from using indoors. Some will drop out though. I think this is a good antennae for mounting in the attic or on the roof/tower etc. The cost is a bit expensive compared with some cheaper models, but this one is very solid. Also it's bulky so i don't think it would be good for indoors looks wise. Everyone has a different antennae requirement for their area and placement. I have a small circular antennae placed in a basement window just below ground level with a metal window well around it that will pickup channel 15 and hold it. The exact antennae in a first floor window on the same side of the house will not hold the signal. I tell you this to point out how placement is critical in picking up signals. Sorry for rambling. Bottom line it's, pricey, bulky, and very sturdy built and best suited for attic or outdoors.

    Great Antenna, Better Reception

    I purchased this antenna because I was having trouble watching football games in my area. The games would cut in and out, at the time I was using an indoor antenna and getting about 60 channels. Once I installed the antenna it greatly boosted the reception. I get crystal clear channels, and I am splitting the signal into two rooms using a Rocketfish mini drop amplifier. I ran about 50 ft of coax from the roof, through the attic and into the house, plus another 15 ft into the rooms each. I got 135+ channels. I love it and channels come in great!

    Great way to pull in local channels for free

    I have been getting discouraged over the ever increasing cost of watching TV via the major satellite and cable companies I have used. I had heard of the possibility of being able to pull in local stations via one of the new age antennas, for free. So I did some research and bought a Clearstream 4MAX Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna that boasts it is able to pull TV stations up to 70 miles away. I installed it outside on an eight foot pole. Once I purchased an additional 75 foot cable (it did not come with any cable) and connected the TV to the antenna, I was amazed when I was able to pull in 44 stations. The closest major city from my house is 60 miles away. I am now thinking seriously of dropping cable altogether.

    I cut the cable cord two years ago and bought this on 1/13/18 to try to bring in the networks so I could watch the NFL games. I worked for about half the day trying different locations for the antenna and auto programming every time I moved or turned it. Even the slightest shift can matter. At first I could only pull in 1 network (ABC). Eventually that went to 2 and finally all 4 including all the Greenville area stations. Mission accomplished. This is mounted in the finished room over my garage. I have it propped up on the back of a chair, near a window, but not pointed out. Reception is amazing!

    I don't know whether its where I live or this antenna, but despite the maximum range leading claims, I was only able to pull in 4 channels, of which I had no idea what 3 of them were! I should have been able to pull in several additional channels, given that I live halfway between Hartford and New York City, which puts me in a zone that the FCC claims receives no less than 10 channels with moderate signal strength. Tried mounting it in several different locations, which did improve the signal strength of the channels I did receive, but did not improve the number of channels received. I returned it and have decided to try a less expensive antenna that has powered signal amplification.
