    Excellent despite my abuse

    I've had mine for about a year now. I have used it while camping in the wilderness, bungee corded to trees, in storms, watched it fall and hit the ground many times, including breaking off the circular elements that are Epoxied back together. For mobile use, it is not fold-able beyond the strait dipoles, but the mounting bracket with wingnuts makes it easy to take off the mount. The mounts will rust, but nothing that causes issues. If there is a downside, it is very strict on direction for a signal or several stations, weather changes of any kind from humidity to temperature effect it, and works better in the middle of the night with more stations. But very clear when locked in. 40 mile range is more accurate in FLAT areas, not mountains. Never further in my experience or close to the 60 mile claims. A flagpole is the best mount if moving around. Adding a rotatory unit to turn the antenna will save time and some headaches. It seems to work best at a height above 10 feet from the ground. 20 is better, 30 is difficult when traveling but getting above trees, it should reach out further for signals. I almost always curse Chinese Products, but this has been one of the good ones.

    picked up all channels

    The towers with the over the air channels are 50 miles away from where I live, generally in the same direction but with some separation. I decided to test a uni-directional long distance antenna as the multi-directional ones were much more expensive. I tested this antenna by just sticking it on a pole in my living room. It picked up about 12 channels immediately, including a couple of the main ones. After I had installed it in my attic, it picked up everything - and more than I expected. I have about 60 channels over the air now. Very simple to assemble. I installed it by simply attaching it to a flat horizontal board which I can move around my attic to tune the reception if I need to. Seemed that having it be movable was a good idea. Oh - I bought this over the web. It turns out that Walmart gave me a pre-opened box, which someone had already tried to install and obviously returned. Not too happy about that but all the parts were there and it works great so not going to make a fuss.

    Good Antenna

    Good antenna. I installed this in my attic and it came with all the mounting hardware needed. I ran coax cable from my attic to my tv in the living room. After installing the antenna and connecting up the coax cable, I did an autoscan with my HD tv. To my dismay, I was not receiving any channels!! I discovered that the coax connectors I installed were not making a proper connection; they were a push on type connector that could be installed without any special tools. I pulled the connectors off and re-installed them and viola!! I picked up all the channels from the local antennas! According to Antennaweb.org, there are 15 antennas within 50 miles of my house. Relative to my house, the antennas were located within a heading range of 340 degrees to 67 degrees. The location of the furthest antenna was 32 miles at a heading of 340 degrees. In my attic, I pointed the antenna roughly due north (i.e. 0 degrees) and was able to pick up all the signals from the 15 different transmitting antennae!

    Good product but doesn't work well in area (MA).

    I had given up on Satellite TV and cable due to the ridiculously high prices. I know some people that have gone with these digital antennas. After doing some research, I have purchased this Clearstream 2V-J3. However, due to my area (Central MA) being in a straight line with trees to the broadcast stations (less than 40 miles away), I was only able to get a few channels. However, the quality of the picture was INCREDIBLE for those that came in. Very crisp HD quality. A+ After not getting what I had expected, I had called Antennas Direct for support. Those guys are top-notch customer service guys. Not only are they very professional and kind, they are very knowledgeable. The associate recommended a different antenna for my area, of which I have just ordered and still waiting to come in. So, do your homework first and even give the guys at Antennas Direct a call and they can help you. This antenna was nice, but wasn't holding up to what I was looking for. Good luck!

    Great antenna for small size!

    Antenna works well for its' small size. I put it in the attic and hooked it up to 1 TV and got good reception from the start. I then hooked up a 4-way splitter adding 2 more TV's and the signal quality went down hill. I then used 2 different 2-way splitters and the signal quality was better, but still didn't receive all of the channels or as strong a signal as just having 1 TV hooked to it. However, for some magical reason a day or 2 later the signal strength seemed to get better on its own and all 3 TV's get a good signal and picture, 28 channels in all in Lee's Summit, MO, a suburb of Kansas City. I am sure I would get a little stronger signal if I installed it outside on the roof but I wanted it to be in the attic where it would not be visible and to keep it out of the weather, and the picture quality has ended up being just fine. Not sure what the difference is between the 2V-J3 and the newer model 2V, but the 2V-J3 was around $5 cheaper and it works well.

    Once you aim it right everything works fantastic

    Im located on the shoreline area of connecticut and had trouble getting stations other than ABC(which is located local and you can get with most basic antennas). I tried several other antennas with no luck and before getting on of the huge ones wanted to give this a shot. First, I want to say I tried at least 5 mounting locations that did not get me much based off what antennaweb.org said about aiming. I was pointing directly at where the hartford stations and getting nothing. Then, I decided for the heck of it to aim at long island. After changing direction a few times I was able to get ABC in ct and Nbc, Cbs, ion, qubo, bounce, but no fox. For the money and the fact that I have a 1st floor apartment surrounded by trees I think it does a very good job. It is mounted outside on the rail of my deck fyi. So, just use a map, take some time to aim, and you will be watching primetime for free in no time.

    Excellent reception

    I bought a $30 amplified 50mile range antenna it would only get a decent # of channels with it in the window. Some of my fav channels still would not come in. So I saw great reviews for the clearstream 2v 60+ mile range antenna on Walmart and Amazon so I bought it at Walmart on sale would have paid more on Amazon with shipping. This is not an amplified antenna like the other one I bought but it pulls in all the channels clearly no cutting in and out of certain channels. Granted it does cost almost 3times as much as the other one which I returned it pulls in all channels clearly without interference and I do not want to have to keep getting up to adjust the antenna to try to pull in certain channels. I'd rather get something that works and this product works. You do have to put it together but is easy with you tube videos. Very pleased with this antenna.

    Great little HD Antenna with Excellent Picture

    According to antennapoint.com, all the TV broadcast stations in my area are about 30 miles away and in the same direction. I set up the antenna using pipe clamps to an existing schedule 40 pipe riser on the house and connected the feed to a splitter for two of our TVs in the house. Reception and HD picture quality are strikingly better than the U-verse I was using before. The TV's auto tuner pulled in 50 stations (half are spanish and thus useless to me -but still). If downtown Miami is getting heavy storms, some stations get some pixelation. But for $0 per month, this is a difficult option to pass up. Between this and Hulu Plus on our Internet feed, we have very cost effective TV. Now I just wish there was a cheap and easy DVR. TIVO's Ramiro seems to be the best no hassle/work-around play, but at $200 plus a monthly fee, it gets me back into the monthly drain I got the antenna to get me away from in the first place. Great little Antenna.

    I get all of the UHF channels with this

    I bought this antenna a week or so ago. It was easy to put together and set up. I am using this indoors in a second floor bedroom. I realize this is not an optimal setup but I can't put an antenna on the outside of the property as it is a rental. I clamped the base of the antenna to the top of a dresser that is near the window and adjusted the direction according to the tvfool website information. I pick up all of the UHF channels in the area. I do not pick up the 2 VHF channels in the area which would be the local CBS and NBC affiliates. I'm not surprised by this because TVfool has those channels listed as the hardest to receive in my area and I can't expect to get them with an indoor setup. All the other channels come in clearly with no breakup in the signal. I'm very pleased with this antenna and would recommend it to anyone looking to ditch their cable company and receive High Definition TV over the air.

    Clearstream 2V vs. Stealthtenna

    Because of unreliability in picking up four specific channels, and to see if we could get more channels than we were getting with our new Channel Master Stealthtenna, I purchased a Clearstream 2V to compare. Placing the antennas outside at the same height and adjacent to each other, both pulled the same 29 digital channels, which is the best I could get after pointing both antennas in different directions over 360 degrees and trying different heights. While comparable in the number of digital channels received (29), the Clearstream was more consistent in receiving CBS and it's sub-channel during inclement weather; however, it was no better at receiving Fox and it's sub-channel. So the only advantage of the Clearstream 2V over the Stealthtenna was being able to pick up two CBS channels more reliably. If that would be worth paying three times the price, then the Clearstream 2V would appear an appropriate purchase.
