[QUOTE=mdviewer25;34998409]Has anyone here tried the Clear Stream 2V antenna as an indoor antenna? If so, what were your results? Thinking purchasing one to replace a Terk HDTVa antenna and trying to get WBAL and WJZ in Capitol Heights. Not worried about WJLA and WUSA since I have FiOS.[/QUOTE
What about a Winegard Freevision? There may be a bit more VHF gain than the C2V, not sure. But it is cheaper, only $34 at Home Depot.

Keeping pace but still 35 years behind

45.1 WBFF: + 2 minutes Now +3
54.1 WNUV: + 2 minutes Now+ 3
58.1 WIAV: + 7 minutes No change
Update:
14.1 WFDC: +6 Minutes
23.1 WDDN: Time warp is regrettably stable. Still 35 calender years off, daily time still six hours off.
24.1 WUTB: Unfortunately, I no longer receive it with my new antenna orientation
25.1 WZDC: +57 minutes
45.1 WBFF: +4
54.1 WNUV: +5
58,1 WIAV: +9

All the rest are on time.

I can assure you that the Freevision doesn't have any greater gain anywhere in its design bands than does a C2V, whether VHF or UHF... It also has an unexpected quirk in that it's peak VHF gain on some channels is off the back rather than the front where most people would expect it to be.

Checked on the Wineguard since I work at Home Depot and on the box it says its range is 30 miles which is less than the Terk that I already have. Still waiting on a few more opinions before I pull the trigger on buying the C2V.

HD DVD = 102

Someone has a C2V new in the box for $35.00 near GWU.

I haven't been able to get mentally attuned to Decades (Baltimore 13.2) since it went from pre-launch binge to whatever juke box scheduling format it is on now. It seems that when they pick an old show to temporarily feature, they run the same, single episode four times in one, twenty-four hour interval, so even if I stumble onto one that piques my interest, I can't make immediate plans to see any more episodes of it because they will only be showing that same one before abandoning it.

I think Buzzr (5.2) will be a dead loser, too. Other than the 1970s Match Game, the rest of their shows are bland and uninteresting.

Didn't Gordon Peterson retire? Why does channel 7 still have this information in the system? I'm not sure if it's Verizon's fault or ABC 7 WJLA but it needs to be updated
