Antennas Direct Offers 3 Antennas Designed for post 2009 TV

ClearStream1July 28, 2008: ST. LOUIS, Mo. – St. Louis-based antennas maker Antennas Direct announced three new models of the ClearStream digital antenna series — which are compact, highly efficient antennas optimized specifically for the post 2009 digital frequencies (high VHF and core UHF).

Using the latest simulation software and test equipment, the ClearStream antennas were tested using more than 3,000 simulations to maximize their efficiency for the core DTV spectrum (470 MHz to 700 MHz). The ClearStreams’ high gain (8 dBi to 12 dBi) and extremely low impedance mismatch (typical 2:1 VSWR) provide dramatic improvements in performance and gain over commonly available compact antennas. The ClearStream antennas also have a wide beam width, which allows them to capture signal from multiple towers.

c2.jpgThe size of the ClearStream antennas was reduced as much as possible in order to achieve a small, sleek look that would appeal to more consumers. The ClearStream1 has a single-loop design, which measures 10?X10,? and is the smallest of the ClearStream antenna models. ClearStream2 features a 10?X20? dual-loop design, and the ClearStream4 model has a quadruple-loop design that measures 20?X28?.

“There hasn’t been a significant change in TV antenna technology for the past 30 years,? said Antennas Direct President Richard Schneider. “Although television broadcasts have changed — with the introduction of digital programming — antenna design has been stagnant. Antennas Direct was founded to foster research and development of stronger, more efficient antennas designed specifically for digital television.?

c4.jpgAfter the nationwide switch to digital broadcasting in February 2009, millions of Americans may need to upgrade to outdoor antennas, which are designed with the DTV frequencies in mind.

“We continually educate the public regarding the type of antenna they will need to receive digital television and how to install it.?

Antennas Direct provides customers with a 90-day, no-fault return guarantee on all antennas and a lifetime warranty against failure, corrosion, or defects in materials or workmanship.
