Any info on this antenna?

I've tried using the search function but got no where. (It's probably me.)

The local Lowes has 2 RCA antennas in stock the ANT751 that is mentioned here lots and a ANT3037XR.

Does anyone have some information on the 3037XR? It's kind of pricy at $95 and it's listed as a "60 mile rated" antenna.

Is it just a bigger version of the 751?

It looks like it is. One interesting feature is that it comes with an add-on kit for VHF-Low real channels 2-6.

I don't know the difference between the X and XR.

It looks like a recycled Winegard HF-FV45, a short-lived model from a few years ago that, IIRC, only Solid Signal was selling back when they were still tight with Winegard (via www.winegarddirect.com, a Solid Signal operation)

Interesting, I've found them on Amazon for $69.

Was looking at antennas for some family and friends that found out I've cut the cord and asked for advise but don't want to go the DIY route like I did.

Don't want to recommend one that I can't find any gain values or such on. That PDF did say it had a 30 degree beam width in a round about sort of way.

Beamwidth is a lot wider than that. VOXX also doubled Winegard's original "range" estimates.

It looks to be a derivative of the HD7010 and primarily they made the VHF elements convertible. http://www.winegarddirect.com/pdf/spec_PR7010.pdf
