Terrestrial Digital's Lacrosse HDTV Antenna Having a Big Impact on the Market

HD antenna heralded as the first antenna to effectively combine aesthetics and performance

May 11, 2006, EUREKA, MO - It's not the first HD antenna that looks good. It's not the first HD antenna that performs well. But it is the first one that does both. Terrestrial Digital's Lacrosse is receiving rave reviews from customers across the country for providing exceptional signal locking capability in a good looking antenna.


The midrange Lacrosse's recent release was met with great anticipation from the HDTV community. As customers have put the product to the test, the letters, phone calls, and emails have begun to come in.

"The early feed back has been very positive," Antennas Direct President Richard Schneider said. "Customers who've previously had trouble locking in signals with traditional antennas are enjoying success with the Lacrosse."

According to Schneider, customers also appreciate the design of the Lacrosse because its toned down look is more like a satellite dish than a traditional HD antenna. The Lacrosse has found very strong support in suburban and urban markets, where aesthetics are important for pleasing apartment managers and neighborhood associations.

The Lacrosse is built on the technology of Terrestrial Digital's DB2 and DB4 lines, which remain two of the most popular multidirectional antennas on the market.

The Lacrosse offers an approximate 10.8 dB of max gain; it is one of the strongest multi -directional antennas available and performs consistently across the entire UHF spectrum. It even works well in areas where HD transmitters are in multiple directions. An amplified version is available as well, featuring a 17dB amplifier.

The antenna stands 14" tall x 20" wide and weighs only 6.8 lbs. The Lacrosse is optimized for frequency range between 400 and 850 MHz, which covers TV channels 13 through 69. The antenna also comes with a 90 day return policy and a lifetime warranty.

Terrestrial Digital is a St. Louis based manufacturer and distributor of off air HDTV antennas. The company was founded in 2003 by Richard Schneider, and continues its fast paced growth & recognition from the HDTV community.
