Knowing how much further Frackville is, that is very impressive! Also compared to the CS600, the Y5713 is a few bucks cheaper.

So from what I'm gathering (Comparing this situation versus the Winegard HD7084P and Antennacraft HD1850 that would in theory cover all), I may just end up with two antennas on the roof. One for 6, and the other possible VHF channels on the fringe plus pre-amp. Another to cover the UHF bands, assuming there is something more affordable that will cover that range. $24 for an antenna is much more cost-effective than DIY at that price point.
