So.....I'm guessing that RCA's newest revision of their popular ANT751 or rather now, 7511, could be a step back in performance?
My guess would be the same.
What was their thinking here?
To make it cheaper, not better.
And why mess with success???
More profit.
I suppose we'll have to wait for in field testing by you guys and others who happen to purchase it.
I would love to be able to compare it with the original 751, but I don't have one. I thought I was getting an original 751 when I ordered it. Even if I had both, I wouldn't be able to make a good comparison at my present location as I previously was able to do like this:

With the setup above I was able to use a steady OTA signal and switch back an forth between the two antennas with an A/B switch while reading my signal level meter.

I do plan to compare it with my GE attic antenna for indoor reception, and I still have a signal level meter, or two.

If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
