Channel Master STEALTHtenna 50
Directional outdoor TV antenna
Our take on the Channel Master STEALTHtenna 50 by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Sometimes by spending a little money you can end up saving a lot. In the case of Channel Master's STEALTHtenna 50, you can install it and start receiving your favorite local over-the-air TV stations for free. And you may decide it's time to "cut the cord" on your cable or satellite TV service (and those big monthly bills).
The STEALTHtenna 50 is a "directional" antenna design. It delivers the best results when most or all of your desired stations are transmitting from the same location. If you'd like to pull in signals from different directions, consider adding a rotor so you can easily aim your antenna in different directions for the best reception.
The STEALTHtenna 50's space-efficient design is suitable for roof and attic installations. The powder-coated black finish helps to blend in to outdoor areas without reflection while providing ultra-high quality HD signals.
