Most of what you posted, I can't figure out....

However, we used to carry a low-VHF antenna but almost no one ever bought them so we liquidated the remaining inventory. We sold about 20 a year, not even enough to pay for the warehousing expenses.

Low VHF never went away, there are about 40 full power stations in the WHOLE COUNTRY that stayed on low-V.

Can't stay in business trying to sell something that no one wants to buy. Neither Channel Master nor Winegard bother anymore, either.

You can still buy conventional, all-channel antennas. That's your best choice if you need something out of a box that includes low-V.

We, of course, continue to offer our ClearStream 5 which is designed for high VHF 7-13.

Good luck, you won't find one in North America to buy, you'll have to make it yourself.

BTW. Check eBay from time to time for new VHF lo antennas. I bought a Antennacraft VHF Lo antenna a little over a year ago there. Good price. Antenna was in good shape.

I think Blonder Tongue still makes a antenna that covers VHF lo channels. Not cheap but if you have to have one, they still might make them.

After the UHF band is shrunk even further don't be surprised if a number of stations migrate back to the VHF TV bands. If that happens then some new VHF lo antennas will likely be manufactured.
