thanks for the answers to all the questions. I added some eyelets and temporary rope tie downs as the wind picked up some and is supposed to be about 18 mph by noon tomorrow. Since dark the reception improved some with few dropouts but still quite a few pixelations but the signal strength remains at about 45 max.

Its hard to tell in the picture but the antenna is tilted up toward WYJJ some.
My wife was with her mother today who had elective back procedure but she will be here during daylight hours after tomorrow to help but I will probably have to take her out to eat to get her to help !

Thanks again for all the help , no hurry for antenna height needed to clear hill doubt I will be able to get it high enough anyway.

an un related question. I received the xg91 today that I was going to try this weekend and when assembling it I noticed that one boom joint comes together touching each other the one closest to the reflectors and the other two sections have about a 16 th of an inch gap between the booms and though the braces are same length it looks like space to the hole not the slot is a little less on one of the brackets . I could easily modify the hole or the slot to make the boom sections touch each other like I would think they should. I am unclear as to whether this is intended or not. I can call antennas direct tomorrow and see what they say if no one knows. Also there is an element just in front of the dipole that is permanently mounted to the boom that I have not seen in any pics of the antenna. Just wondering if this is supposed to be there or maybe it was a return and not correct parts. I will try to post pics
