The 7084 shows 131 inches long....so 11 feet
The 7698 shows 168 so 14 feet long
The HBU55 shows 145 inches so 12 feet long
The big difference is the 7084 is 110 inches wide (so 9 feet) due to the long elements for channels 2-6
The 7698 shows 53.5 inches so a little over 4 feet wide as it only needs for 7-13 which are much shorter elements
The HBU55 is about the same width as the 7698
Just ordered a AntennaCraft-HBU55 for $95 with shipping
I felt the price and reviews were good on the antenna.
Feel this antenna will work well and if I need a amp then I will get one.
But for now this seems like a decent deal.thanks all....JT
Well I just put up my AntennaCraft-HBU55 outdoors
Seems that I only get 2 stations at this time (Signal is 47 - 50}
22.1 CBS WYOU and 28.1 NBC WBRE(it seems that I am in a YELLOW area for those 2 stations from TV Fool}
where as 16.1 ABC and 56.1 WOLF FOX That are in RED from TV Fool that I cannot get.
Maybe a AMP will help?
If I remember when I bought my Antenna Direct 91XG 4 - 6 years ago I was able to get the ABC but not FOX at that time
and I had read many stations have changed or relocate their ID numbers?
I also remember I was also able to get a Poconos weather channel.(Is that still avalable?.}..
I have gone too Antennaweb.org and put my Address in and NO stations showed up but if I put my zip code in then these stations shows that it can be picked up
Channel 22.1 and 28.1
(I only want the Wilksberrie stations}
Will it be that hard to get ABC and maybe Fox?
Seems that the 2 stations that I pick up are VHF 22.1 and 28.1
All the other stations in that area are UHF (I thought UHF would be more easy to pick up?..
Would the AntennaCraft 30dB High Gain TV/FM Mast-Mounted Amplifier 10G212 for $35 would help?
Or maybe a CM or Winegard would be better amps?.Thanks allll...JT
Today I installed my AntennaCraft-HBU55 and Antenna Direct PA18 Uhf/Vhf Pre Amp kit
With just the AntennaCraft-HBU55 my reading are
22.1 Signal 38
28.1 Signal 39
Picture is kinda breaking up here and there
Then installed the Antenna Direct PA18
22.1 Signal 72
28.1 Signal 82
41.1 Signal 22
50.1 Signal 16
22.1 and 28.1 came in great
As for 41.1 and 50.1 they don't come in but the stations pop up when I do scan for stations on my tv.
Any of you think this will be the best I will be able too do?
Seems in Brodheadsville 18322 area is kinda low in my area and not high in the mountains like other areas...................JT
