Antenna spotting in Kenosha # 10

So, there's a lot of these combination of antennas in Kenosha. I'm 100% sure they are pre cable TV and probably were installed in the 60s and the 70s .

I believe that they are truly bi-directional especially the one which I believe is UHF since the reflector is in the middle. Kind of reminds me of the UHF element on the radio shack antennas.

Anybody know? Are these those "area specials". Has anybody here installed these or know who made them? Seems like it was a very popular combination at one time and somewhat sturdy other than the top of the reflector on the UHF. Almost everyone I see has the same bent reflector...

Yes, could be Radio Shack antennas.
In one of the VHF antenna images, can see a feature common to Antennacraft.
For many years, Antennacraft was owned by Radio Shack.

Yes, you are right, they are bi-directional and almost certainly area specials.
