Televes Boss Tech DAT-790 LR HD
 
Has anyone ever herd of this critter? It's apparently new because its preorder only.

It looks very good, to me. Specs are a little hard to come by.
Televes' website.....

I live in a deep fringe area and was thinking of swapping out the 8200, since I don't need VHF anyhow.

[If admin wants to move this to "antennas".. Go ahead.]

A few different places, are selling similar antennas. For less money.

http://www.parts-express.com/antop-u...tenna--210-514

32db of gain, tells me that it has a built in amp, which I would avoid.

The 8200 is a good antenna.
If you truly need to get rid of it and are happy w/ Winegard, then consider the 7698p.

I was really looking at the AD 91XG. Im sure you are all very familiar with it.

I just happend to come across the other one, and it looked like it might be decent.

Why do you not like the built in amps? Cuz they fail, and then your antenna is no good?

One of my antennas is a 91XG and I'm very happy w/ it.


For the same reasons I use separate audio components. Because of the reason you stated about failure and because you really don't know anything about the amp.

32db, sounds like they're adding the antenna gain and the amp gain together.

Unless you post your TVFR, we don't know if a UHF only like the 91XG would even be adequate.
I receive some VHF w/ mine, but I wasn't planning on them, when I started out. YMMV.

Many thanks. I kinda thought the 32db was too good to be true. The 91xp's 16.8db seems like the best in the business, especially for UHF only.

The ones at Parts Express are cheap Chinese knock-offs of some of the other Televes designs. They are not Televes antennas.

Peak gain on the 91XG is up in what is now the cellular bands although channel 51 gain is around 17.4 dBi(http://www.antennasdirect.com/cmss_f...s/91XG-TDS.pdf).

The DB8e also has a peak gain of around 17.4 dBi on channel 51 but offers much improved gain at the lower end of the UHF band. (https://www.antennasdirect.com/cmss_...s/DB8E-TDS.pdf
)

The Televes Boss Tech series uses an automatic gain control feature in the amp to vary gain depending on the strength of the signals at its input. It's been around three or four years, but they've been tough to find in North America (Televes is located in Spain) since they hadn't focused on the US market until recently. I've yet to see one.

Now ADTech, Your company will have to adjust their antennas to 600 mgh. the new uhf band takes affect in 2020.

You're three years premature. Check back in three years.

FWIW, we have a number of competitors who are still selling only antennas that were designed for the 1983 channel band, they never bothered updating for the 2009 channels as we did.
