Antennas Direct DB8 or Antennas Direct ClearStream4 or ?

Hello,

Here is my location http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...40331bcb3da728

I installed a ClearSteam2 and could only receive channel 15. I am going to return and am looking at these other two antennas. What do ya'll think?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Mark

You purchased a UHF-only antenna for an area with weak signals broadcast on a mixture of VHF and UHF channels. You receive WRBL because it is your strongest signal, it is UHF, and has no co-channel interference. At very least, you should get Antenna Direct's VHF dipole to convert your antenna to the C2v.

My first impression of your TV Fool report is that I want to see TV Fool reports for 25 & 50 feet.

If this is the signal available to you, you'll need a large deep fringe antenna system.

Electron is right to ask how many sets are going to be connected. The answer drives recommendations re. rotator and amplifier options.
