Also, cost comparison, GE is less.
Not much difference; the DB2E was on sale.

Of course, you would have to add a VHF kit to use as all around antenna, whereas GE already equipped with VHF dipole.
Yes, you are correct.

That is my next project; channel 13 ABC is weaker because the folded dipole doesn't have much gain, and a reflector is needed for VHF because of multipath reflections.

It will be difficult because VHF-High antennas are about 3x the size of UHF antennas.
If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
