I am eager to perform on-air comparison tests for several Smart Antennas

[My suburban location is in a "hole" with lots of multipath.]
[I also have a plan to "hack" the DTA-5000 to add external antennas.]
I'll look at performance between converter boxes, but since these boxes
ALL meet A/74 requirements, it won't be easy to uncover differences without
setting up some extreme on-air test scenarios, such as near transmitters.
[I plan to do "something"....even if I run off my car's DC/AC Inverter.]
Between myself and adult kidz, "we" intend to buy at least four boxes
and then draw straws wrt which is "best" to use w & w/o Smart Antenna.
I have 2 coupons now....and will wait to order more....
I intend to buy a mix of chip types, incl. single vs double conversion tuners.
So far, I haven't bought any....because I have yet to see what I want:
Defect Free, Smart Antenna, S-Video, EZ-ADD, Signal LEVEL (not just Quality).
I have until end of May to buy the first pair...although I hope they extend it....
