I wasn't watching that channel. I just turned on the TV and took a picture!
If you like I can retake another channel like "The Family Channel"

Sorry to hear that you are getting the same picture on all channels.... LOL

"Same Picture Quality" is the nature of most digital channels, either you get it or you don't. The daze of snow are mostly gone. Drop-outs are the new "snow".

Staying current is why we like to have occasional exposure to world events while also enjoying nature.

ALL all the preceding is LOL.....

Lots of reviews

I suppose as long as the amplifier holds up it will work great. Personally. I like a bigger antenna on an extendable mast.

Your is stealthy which I like also.

Heh...

We catch our news by listening (radio!) to the BBC, CBC, and NPR on our SiriusXM. I'll be doing an antenna hookup into the Scamp Real Soon Now. And, yes, we read a lot on our Personal Access Display Device, but we maintain a backup supply of dead-tree objects for consumption. Oddly enough places such as the Pukwana Historical Review don't have an eBook format. Odd, that.

Now, about this "earth is round thing"...

I don't know about the Earth, just what I have been told, but I know my Scamp is kind of round.

But a Scamp is flat on the bottom, just like the earth, otherwise the earth would just roll out of place while the sun is orbiting around it.....

How easy is it to colapse and stow the Clearstream for travel? Is it fairly compact?

The Clearstream 2V two radials fold in which makes it a 12" x 17" and it fits nicely
under a seat for storage. One other thing I didn't mention is that it has a lifetime warranty.

When a smaller tool does the job with full satisfaction, the length of the mast is of no consequence.

As mentioned, two of the five I have bought have been in 24/7 outside use for over two years. If one worries about amplifier/component failures they shouldn't buy much of anything in 2014.

Well, since you asked I am scheming to build a bike rack for the back of my Scamp that includes the capability to add a mast on top that will carry a new antenna like the one discussed in this thread. My Scamp has a factory antenna now that won’t pick up squat. I intend to leave it but remove and utilize the factory in-feed cable so I will not need any new holes in the Scamp. So many projects, so little time. I need to build the receiver to carry the bike rack first. And no, these are broadcast antennas, no fees to Dish or anybody else (yet).

Here is a link for a cable/tv ready hook up. This is what Scamp installed on my camper it works fine or you can just feed the cable through a corner opening in your window.
