Hmmm, the Lacrosse http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882790009
doesn't look anything at all like DB8 which does indeed resemble the 4228 with a slightly different reflector scheme, I have no bias either way, but you obviously do, I was just making an observation.
That being said, in the novice opinion of a 49 year old man who used to tinker with Channel Master UHF antennas as a youth in the 70's lol, I think the DB4e is decent antenna that would perform much better in a more ideal environment, unfortunately I don't live there. I'm pretty sure the 4228 would be subject to the same limitations in this situation, but if you want to send me one I'll be glad to test that theory 1st hand.
