Can I Get These Stations?


I'm moving here.

I have experience setting up and mounting a 91xg with a RCA preamp at my current place. It's gotten pretty good reception after setup. However, the reception where I'm moving to is a little worse than what I have in my current home (maybe 2-3 dB).

I noticed that solid signal came out with an HDB91X. It seems to have similar gain to the 91xg and is slightly cheaper. Should I just go with that?

Did you leave the 91XG behind? Antennas Direct products are well made ... I would take it and the preamp with me. The HDB91X is likely an imported copy of the 91XG, made more cheaply. Less than $25 difference on Amazon ...

You want to point it at Ogden (299)? Can you go higher?

Hi David,

Is it possible you could post your current location TVFool map, along with a list of stations from it that you are currently receiving with the 91XG?

I would agree with the other poster. If I remember right, that alternative antenna is also smaller, which leads me to believe (unscientifically) that it would not perform quite as well as your current antenna.
