After trying both a Channel Master 4228 and a Winegard 9095 at my house (Stone Mountain), and trying them in two different outdoor locations, but still always had 1 or 2 DTV channels that wouldn't come in reliably (not always the same ones), I ordered the 91XG from Antennas Direct.
I can tell you that this antenna works as advertised. I am feeding two DTV tuners (Sony XBR960 & Dish 811) and 3 analog TVs using a Winegard DA-405 UHF distribution amplifier. Separate VHF antennas are used for analog 2,5,8,11 and DTV 10 (91XG will not pickup DTV 10).
The DTV signals for 2,5,11,17,30,34,36,46,63,& 69 all come in at 92% or higher on the Sony (would you believe 98% for WPBA-DT). DTV 42 (The Atlanta Channel) comes in at 65%. On the DishNetwork 811, everything except DTV 42 comes in at 80% or higher. DTV 42 comes in at 65% but drops out occasionally.
For those interested in analog reception, for the first time I can receive analog 30 without ghosting. The improvement in analog 69 is absolutely stunning, with no ghosting and just a small trace of snow (used to be unwatchable). Analog 23, 53, 57 & 63 are noticeably improved, and for the first time I have a faint signal on analog 55.
If you have had difficulty receiving DTV with Channel Master or Winegard, definitely try the Antennas Direct 91XG. Just remember it won't work on WXIA-DT (it might work closer in to town).
