Kansas City: DB2 or C2 antenna

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to decide between the DB2 (or Eagle Aspen equivalent) or the ClearStream C2, and would appreciate some input. The antenna would be indoors, but would be on the second floor in a room above the garage, on the wall right up next to the ceiling, facing in the general direction of the stations as much possible given their location.

Here's my TVFool info.

BTW, I don't care about any of the stations below KSMO in the list. Thanks!

The Eagle Aspen 2bay should work just fine for your stations of interest on your TVFool report.

Only issue would be if you have stucco-on-wire-screen exterior or metal siding or foil-backed insulation in your walls.

Please add a location to all antenna help threads. See the sticky post.

Title edited.

Since there is quite a difference in direction between all of the channels above KSMO you may not want a highly directional(HD) antenna.
Also with the close distance you have to be sure that you do not get too good of an antenna since digital tuners can not process the inputs from digital channels that are too strong as well as ones that are too weak.

It has a wide enough beamwidth to still receive stations slightly off-axis. If possible, an aim of compass direction roughly 25° should work well.

I've tested both the DB2 and the C2 at my sister's house in Leawood (125th and State line area).

Both worked fine.

That's very close to me. Were the antennas on the roof or indoors? Thanks!

And thanks to everyone else for their replies as well. I'll dig up my old compass and make sure that when I get the antenna it's pointed in the right direction.
