From the Manufacturer

The ClearStream™ 5 VHF/UHF Antenna Provides Free Over-The-Air Digital and HDTV Reception with no Subscription, Cable or Satellite Fees.

The ClearStream™ 5 antenna represents a breakthrough in long range VHF antenna size and performance. With many of the American DTV stations broadcasting on High-VHF frequencies as well as on UHF frequencies a need exists for a powerful antenna with dual-band performance. This advanced technology allows the ClearStream™ line of antennas to be smaller and more powerful across today’s DTV spectrum. Using anodized aluminum, ClearStream™ antennas are engineered for strength and durability. They are the only antennas which offer a Lifetime Warranty!

In a compact 22” x 28” form, the ClearStream™ 5 is the first broad-spectrum antenna without the performance compromises typically seen in outdated designs of legacy antennas. With its uniquely tuned High-VHF element, the ClearStream™ 5 conquers the challenge of combining VHF and UHF signals. The ClearStream™ 5 has a 65+ mile range for High-VHF stations and a 35+ mile range for UHF stations with a 70 degree beam width; it accommodates widely spaced broadcast towers. It then delivers an impressive 98% of signal reception to the digital tuner rather than being lost through impedance mismatches and phase cancellation.

The ClearStream™ 5 is the ultimate tool for digital broadcast viewing with either rooftop or attic installations. No other antenna exists in the marketplace can rival its dual-band performance.

The Antennas Direct Lifetime Warranty assures you of its superior build quality and durability.

5 out of 5 eggsAntennas Direct C5 High Gain Digital VHF Antenna

Pros: Assembly is as easy as it gets. Instructions are satifactory and they have installation videos on the Antennas Direct website if you are unsure. Package arrived on-time and in satisfactory condition. Excellent VHF signal reception and decent UHF. Broadcast towers in my area are between 20-40 miles away and I live near the bottom of a hill with tall pine trees in direct line with the signals.

Cons: I have no cons to speak of.

Other Thoughts: I knew the C5 was geared toward VHF when I got it and that is why I purchased the C4 to combine UHF and VHF. The C5 comes with a combiner. I am getting 95-100% signal with no amplifier. I have approximately 30-35 feet of coaxial cable from antenna to dish dvr box where it is connected. I also have a 1 to 2 signal splitter, with about 50 feet of coaxial cable to another tv. Great signal. I mounted the antenna on a mast that is attached to the side of our chimney encasement on the roof. The antenna is about 20 feet above ground. very pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Antenna

Pros: Mounted mast/antenna in my attic and I now pick up 18 UHF/
VHF channels. VHF channels have a signal strength between 78-82, while the signal strength on the UHF channels are significantly weaker 8-40. If your budget allows for you to purchase only one antenna this is the one to buy. When mounted outside on the house on a mast 22' from ground level the VHF signal strength increases dramatically (recd between 24-26 stations depending on the tv tuner).

Cons: Weak UHF signal strength (I realize that this is an antenna designed specifically for VHF signals). Best to supplement this antenna with a UHF antenna either the C2, C4 or DB8.

Other Thoughts: Great antenna for pulling in VHF stations.
