Rabbit73. Thanks for taking the time to post all that info. As a newbie, I have no idea what anyone's agenda is and appreciate a second opinion. And as I said in my post, I did not want to offend anyone. I have a few follow up questions for you (and anyone else that would like to chime in).
1. Is the antennacraft hbu55 a good antenna for my purposes, aside from being fairly large? As I mentioned, I found one for $60, though I have not bought it yet.
2. Putting size aside, Is the ClearStream 5 as good or better for reception of high VHF than the Wineguard or Channelmaster units you mentioned? (or the or HBU55 ). The ClearStream 5 certainly looks solid and its size would make it much easier to install.
3. Are the Stellar Labs units solidly built or flimsy, and how well do they work? A piece of junk is no bargain.
4. For anyone not aware, CBS is streaming all their NFL playoff games including the Superbowl, and as far as I can tell, no subscription, cable or otherwise, is required.
