ClearStream 2MAX UHF/VHF Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna
I've had a flat window antenna for some time which worked ok. It wore out so I bought the 2MAX to replace it. Major improvement in the quality of the signal. I now get 66 channels and the pictures are HD quality. The 2MAX also looks great on my living room plant ledge. Highly recommended.
Very happy with the 2Max.
Old house, built in 1923 with huge trees everywhere.
Roughly 50 miles north of Denver and 50+ miles south of Cheyenne WY.
Channel scan got 68 channels. (59 without my homemade 3' mast extension)
Went with the eave mount on the north side of the house, which is where the satellite dish was. Used the dish cable and ground wire.
Getting Denver and Boulder to the south, Fort Collins and Cheyenne to the north. Very crisp and clear pictures. No Denver/Boulder pixelation at all.
Occasional Cheyenne pixelation but only when very windy.
Very impressed considering all the huge trees around here. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
My location is midway between Baltimore and Washington DC (maybe closer to Baltimore). I had been using an amplified indoor AD antenna, and got about 15 Baltimore channels. As an avad Redskin fan, I couldn't ever get Sunday games so I added the 2MAX knowing that the DC stations were right around 50 miles, Baltimore abour 40. My channel selection easily tri[pled with all the terresteral DC and Baltimore stations (with no apmplification). It's important to note that looking at the whole-house wiring will help to insure the best reception. Eliminate any splitters that sends signal to a non-existent TV/Output and minimize the coax run from antenna to tv.
I'm happy to support a US company! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
So far the antenna has pulled in 30 channels. Some of them are duplicates though. I don't have it pointed the right direction but I'm close. I reside in Nebraska between Lincoln and Omaha. I could pull 34 channels in with my Leaf antenna. Hopefully I will gain a couple more channels once I have it pointed the right direction.
I used my existing Direct TV mounting hardware on my roof to mount this antenna. It is much stronger and stable than the mounting hardware supplied with this antenna. The hardware that comes with it might be adequate though.
So far we are pretty happy although it does take some time getting used to limited viewing options. If you like watching shows from the 70's and 80's then going back to an antenna is a no brainer. It's still better than paying to watch TV and renting the receivers although my children will tell you otherwise. For the price, it's a good option. You can always try it out and if it's not for you then return it. Don't let the cable people lead you to believe you can't live without cable TV. You can !! I grew up with three channels and I survived. Same goes for these expensive cell phones.
If there is a down side, I wished there were more sports channels available to watch. I will miss college football, How It's Made, and the outdoor channels.
For 1 it picks up New Jersey channels and I live in Brooklyn New York closer to Queens New York two it does not even hold those New Jersey channels it lose signal every time I turn on the TV i've angled this antenna every five ways to none and nothing works I feel like I wasted my money I'm about to stream live because I can't take the losing signals on this antenna anymore
