And with the HDB91,with its 60with Beem if pointed right no rotor should be used??
The 91XG has a relatively narrow beam compared to the DB8. When I had a DB8, I was able to receive VHF as low as real channel 11. You can also take off the reflectors if you have strong signals in front and in back -- almost omnidirectional reception.

But it is a sail. No doubt about that. At least it is inarticulate so, it will bounce back and I never noticed much impact on reception when it was dancing. Besides the high vhf reception, I loved that the DB8 was great when the trees were moving around...I suppose due to the large collection area.
