i have one more question i guess.

What sort of disadvantages are there with me getting the CM 4228?
is it primarily due to the fact that the vhf signals won't be coming as strong?

the main reason for my question is that i'm not one paying for the antenna, and the person that is, is asking me "what about the...". I should note that the person paying is a HAM operator, and was looking at the specs and liked the gain of the CM 4228. His understanding is that after the digital conversion there won't be any VHF signals, but i tried to tell him. a) that won't be the case b) i've read that 2011 may get extended as the deadline for the analogue shut off in canada.

take care
and thanks again
