I just purchased this antenna in order to compare its performance against my other antennas.

I got to thinking that since I do not have any VHF Lo signals within eyeshot, that perhaps it is possible to remove the rear elements for VHF Lo in order to make the antenna lighter.

If I decide to do this, how do I determine which elements are for Channels 2 through 6 and can be removed?

Another thought crossed my mind. Since I have a VHF Hi channel in this area though at a fringe distance, would it be possible to reduce the size of the VHF Lo elements so that they will help increase the gain either on a specific channel such as 7 or over the entire range of VHF Hi channels?

What do the experts think?

^^^Thanks for the note about your experience with this Mille.

Scarybob.I am not about to get rid of the antenna. It has better gain on VHF than the YA 1713 and the gain on the low end of the UHF band is also better than any other antenna I own including the 91XG. I am simply wondering if there will be improved performance on VHF Hi if I remove the VHF Lo elements.

Thanks for the additional and thought out replies. 300ohm has a lot of background with home brew antennas and I trust his judgment. I'll leave it as is given the unique design of the antenna.
