It's Like Your Barbeque Pit and Kitchen Range Had a Baby!

Richard Schneider, founder of Terrestrial Digital, is right about one thing: there's plenty of free over-the-air high definition signals out there for anyone willing to try. And the signal quality is generally better than anything off a small satellite or cable. Terrestrial Digital's new line of ClearStream antennas are small and practically invisible compared to the 14' Yagi monster I've got on my roof.

The CS1 ($59) is the smallest, a mere 10" square and said to be able to pick up high def stations up to 30 miles away, given line of sight. The CS2 ($79) is about double the size of the CS1 and good for signals coming from 45 miles away. The CS4 ($99, pictured above) can reach over 65 miles.
