Product Overview

The ClearStream 5 antenna represents a breakthrough in long range UHF/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 we know which offer a Lifetime Warranty. In a compact 22 in. x 28 in. form, the ClearStream 5 is the first broad spectrum antenna without the performance compromises typically seen in outdated designs of legacy antennas.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 takes on the challenge of combining VHF and UHF signals. The ClearStream 5 has a 65 plus mile range for High-VHF stations and a 35 plus mile range for UHF stations with a 70 degree beam width; it accommodates widely spaced broadcast towers. It then delivers an impressive 98 percent 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.
  • 174 216 MHz channels 7 -13 maximum gain: 7.6 dBi VHF; 4.9 dBi UHF

Questions & Answers

I'm trying to pull in Fox and CBS out of Providence from 70 miles away in southeastern NH, both high VHF broadcasts - my Clearstream2V seems to be just shy of picking up Fox with an amp (shows in channel list), might the Clearstream5 help me?

Asked by: franko2323
Thanks I live in Tennessee, and have mine set up with a rotor and amp and have no problems pulling in stations 110 miles away. This is a large antenna. Think 12 or thirteen feet long.

can u tell what channels that I would get with antenna? my zip code is 15522

Asked by: jaime202
I cannot say which specific channels you would get with this antenna, but I can tell you what it does for me. I live in Northern Colorado. I originally installed the "ClearStream 4MAX™ UHF/VHF Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna" and I pointed it south to get TV stations from Denver. I got most channels without problems, but could not get NBC. I phoned Antennas Direct and their Tech Support team was very helpful; they informed me that my nearest NBC station was broadcasting on VHF. The Tech Team said that the "ClearStream 4MAX™ UHF/VHF Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna" was really good for UHF stations and average for VHF stations; basically I needed a better antenna for VHF stations. I then purchased and installed the "ClearStream 5 UHF/VHF Ultra Long Range Outdoor DTV Antenna" and a junction box. The two antennas are mounted on the same mast and each antenna connects to the inputs on the junction box, then a single output cable goes to my TV. I now get all network channels, including NBC, without any problems whatsoever. I am not an expert on UHF and VHF, but this experience taught me that different TV stations may be broadcasting in different ways. So, I cannot tell you which channels it would give you, as that seems to be determined by your geography and whether your local stations are using UHF or VHF. I hope this was helpful! -JT

Can I use this antennae for my 1993 Panasonic VHF TV? I do not own a flat screen digital

Asked by: Lolly
A digital TV converter box would be needed. Many people are able to continue using perfectly good analog TV's for today's digital broadcasts.

Hi All I'm thinking of dumping cable  my question is can I use the existing outside wire that's hooked up to my four tv in the house  I was going to use the dish pole that  mounted outside With a antenna What do you think Thanks Steve

Asked by: Reds
You can definitely use the RG 6 coaxial cables that are running throughout your home since any RG 6 coaxial cable is universally compatible. You may have to follow the wires around your home and replace or remove some splitters, amplifiers, or other distribution hardware. Some hardware used to distribute coaxial cable by satellite providers are not compatible with the frequencies used for OTA broadcast. Feel free to contact our Technical Support team for more support. You can reach them either on the phone @ 877-825-5572 or online with our Live Chat option. Thanks for your time, Steve!

5 UHF/VHF Ultra Long Range Outdoor DTV Antenna is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got every channel I wanted I installed this in my attic, I'll estimate 22' above the foundation. Distance to tower estimate is about 40 miles. Our roof has the foil-lined radiation reflective wood and we still got all the channels that indicated strong strength (green) on the web. Also used a signal amplifier. One thing: aiming in the precise direction of the tower made the difference for one VHF channel. We had to reposition and rescan a couple of times to get that last channel. But it's been 100% reception since then. In my area, the price of the antenna is less than two months of cable. No regrets. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best compact & long range antenna Bought this antenna per support person Randy. Randy was very courteous and helpful. Antenna arrived pretty much assembled, installation was an easy task, scanned the channels and found 164 channels. Best HD quality on Lucan channels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the answer for stubborn VHF channels. One station, just one stubborn VHF channel was eluding me. The Clearstream 5 grabbed that station and one other VHF station! Problem solved. This Antenna is great! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Antenna was straight forward to assemble and install, went from 9 channels with my old antenna to 17 with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I live in the super boonies between Chicago and Milwaukee. 45 miles to the towers. Channel 2 (CBS) has ALWAYS been a problem to get. No more. Combined with a CV4, I get everything rock solid even in crummy weather. I use a CV4 with Dipole on the Milwaukee side. Diplexer in the house to combine the two stacks into one lead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Clear Stream C5 is Strong and Sturdy. The C5 is a Strong and Sturdy Antenna and will Provide Reliable Reception and Last a Long Time Outside. The C5 Is Designed for Reception of the VHF High Band Tv Channels 7 thru 13 when the Signal Strengths are Weak and Strong. Out of Band Reception. The C5 will also do a Good Job of Receiving the UHF Tv Band Channels of 14 thru 51 when the Signal Strengths are Strong. And the C5 will also Receive the VHF Low Band Tv Channels 2 thru 6 when the Signal Strengths are Strong. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat Antenna. I had two directional mast antennas, one WNW for channel 11 (41 mi 278º) and 13 (46 mi 284º) and one ENE for channels 8 (46 mi 54º) and 10 (49 mi 64º). UHF Channel 29 (19 mi 350º) has always been good. We had poor reception and weak signals for channel 11 and 13. Live chat with Antennas Direct recommended the Clearstream 5 - to improve reception for 11 and 13. It did not improve the reception for 11 and 13, but I reversed the existing mast antenna from ENE to WNW and directed the Clearstream 5 to NE, all signal strengths are now satisfactory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I needed. I started with the Clearstream 2V. Most towers are about 30 miles away. All the UHF channels were clear. Channel 9 (VHF hi band) was marginal. Signal quality varied from just acceptable to unwatchable. Three reasons account for this 1) location is on south side of a hill just below the peak (see photo). 2) Lots of trees. 3) The gain of the dipole on the Clearstream 2V is only rated at 3.1Dbi. The clearstream 5 has a 7..6 Dbi rating. In addition the use of a separate VHF and UHF antenna permitted each to be independently positioned as shown in photo 2. A UHF/VHF antenna combiner was used to combine the signals. Signal quality for channel 9 (VHF hi) went from 40 % to 65 - 70 %. Problem solved. Other UHF channels, although good, improved (as measure by signal quality meter on tuner). This is due to the ability to independently align each antenna.
