I'm trying to figure out a way you get good reception from Chicago and Milwaukee at the same time for one or two antennas. The reason I'm looking at the C-Max series is because they are...

AD Tech question

Hello and Good Morning AD Tech.

If there's really no difference between the C4MAX and the CS4V, wouldn't the old CS4V be a better deal ? (At least at Amazon)

You mean the HD 8100? I'll bet that was fun to put up! That's just a massive antenna. Is that one of the largest ever made?

What is airplane flutter?

4 bay?

Hi Rick , thanks for your input .

So you're using a 4-bay? My towers are approximately 10 miles closer each way.

Which 4-bay bay do you use?

Above the antenna video. Scared of heights?

Hi Rabbit!

Hindsight being 20-20, I think I would have done a nicer job on the video. But then again, it kind of shows the perspective which is what I wanted. In the video the antennas are...

Antennas Direct C4-V-CJM

AD Tech,

Thanks for the quick reply, it's well appreciated.

No wind testing, surprising. They do appear to be very weather proof though and somewhat aero dynamic, especially with the...

Rabbit,

I have to admit, I did mean Bi-directional, not Omni. I don't know why IO asked about that, the only time I see them is on RV's actually. My bad.

I was thinking Bi-directional.

Euro Filter?

Thanks Tower guy!

Any info on those European filters?
