Need a little more info. Can you post your tvfool results?
First off, there are 2 versions of the Clearstream. The UHF, and the UHF/VHF combo which is called "Clearstream 2 Complete". If you got just the Clearstream 2 UHF, you will have problems getting 7,11 and 13 since those are VHF channels.
I prefer the conventional VHF/UHF antenna like the HBU-22 at Radio Shack.
Do you have a long cable run from the antena to the TV? Any splitters? Is the cable RG6?
As far as pointing it 242 degrees southwest, basically you are trying to aim for the Empire State Bldg. Try tweeking the antenna a bit, sometimes that is the difference between getting a station or not.
