That antenna (The Winegard Colortron Color Wedge Antenna) evolved into the Winegard CA8100 in the 80's and was discontinued about a dozen years ago. The CA8100 was a tadd shorter than the CA8200 which evolved into the HD8200P now the hd8200U.

The Hd8200U would be a tadd better than the antenna you mention
