I moved the 'scatter forager' slot antenna into the spot that my large 2-bay VHF antenna occupied.

Reception-wise, they seem pretty similar.
(Except for the slot antenna is considerably more manageable than the 2-bay VHF beast!!!)
The slot antenna does seem to reject multipath interference better, though.
It also doesn't seem to suffer from dropouts every time a truck drives by on the the street in front of the house, too.

What I really want to do is get my antennas out of the attic, and on to the roof of either the garage or house.
I don't know if that'll give me the extra gain to possibly capture any of my farther-away stations or not.

I just have to sort out the best (and yet least frustrating) way to ground the setup first.
