I am a new member to the community, and live south of the border in Ohio. I enjoy watching my Channel 32 & 54 Canadian Stations (Toronto), which is a pull for me. However, due to a recent storm I need to replace my existing equipment and wanted some feedback.
In looking at the best possible "deep fringe" UHF antenna. What would you recommend? I have narrowed it down to the Winegard 9032 & the Antennas Direct 91XG.
I am a serious UHF DX Man, and would get the Wade 4' parabolic however, this only attaches to a mast of 2" or larger and my mast is not this big. It costs $400 plus shipping.
But back to reality, I am really looking for the deepest fringe antenna. I decided on ordering the Delhi ( Jerrold ) VIP-307SR for $176.55 to satisfy my VHF need. At this time, I do not know what to get for the UHF.
Below are the gain charts for the VIP-307SR. (What a monster at 194")
The Channel Master 4228 is nice, however, I believe the Yagi Type antennas are a more directional (directivity) and a tighter back door (front-to-back ratio) 91XG & Wineguard 9032.
Lastly, I will also buy the Channel Master 7777 pre-amp.
Any ideas or feedack?
