This review is from: Antennas Direct 91XG UHF Uni-Directional Antenna
Smaller profile than other antennas. Performance is very good, but extremely directional. I'm able to pick up HDTV digital signals at 80-90%. Was at about 30-40% with my old antenna. I can pick up both VHF and UHF when my pre-amp is hooked up.
Box was likely opened during shipping (staples came loose). Could be packaged a little better. Only has one mounting bracket for the pole. I had to fabricate an upper mount to put this in the way I _really_ wanted.
Use RG-6 and limit the cable run from the antenna if possible for better performance. I paired with a pre-amp for even better signal strength and to distribute to my entire house. Sure beats paying for TV service. I believe this will hold up better in the wind than my old antenna (which lasted 6 years), but only time will tell. Could get cheaper elsewhere, but hey... Newegg has always been trouble free for me!
