Couldn't get the photos to stay up long enough to really look at them closely...........
Do you still use the FM antenna?
If not, the long VHF elements on the upper one are needed for FM radio (high end of the low-VHF band).
Also, remember that the FCC is planning to "re-pack" the TV spectrum again, soon. No way of knowing what band your local stations will be in.
They might move back to VHF, even to low-band (2-6).
I was downstairs in the storage area yesterday, and remembered where I last saw a really good "old-fashioned" TV antenna....
It's a huge Lindsay "Test/Backup" antenna, for Cable TV companies. It cost about 300 bucks, ten years ago. It has heavy-duty anodized elements, and the ends are swagged (spun and rounded, to close them off). Nice rig. It's probably related to the Jerrold and Delhi brands, which Lindsay picked up.
They don't make that one any more.
