Dad's antenna was hit by a limb the other night... he believes the boom was sheared at the VHF end (have yet to go look) he went out & picked up a Radio Shack HBU55 .. 140 inch boom, I think this is just going to be too heavy for me to handle the install at this point, any other comments on this antenna?
I know I was looking into the 91XG though only available online only & I don't do or trust online commerece.
I'm unsure of what he has now something in the 100 inch boom area.
The HBU55 is a High VHF only are low VHF's primarly not used? Is there a suppliment to high VHF for the 91XG, apparently the only station lost in this mishap is channel 19 (naturally).
Speaking of Pittsburgh I've never been to the downtown area (until recently), while traveling to Maryland a few weeks back the GPS that was being used directed us right off of I79 (en route to I68) into downtown Pittsburgh & right to the scene of a bad accident at the tunnel on 376....in rush hour..."I kept hearing the quote from one of the gals "trust in the GPS' ... anyhow went by Channel 11, & Channel 4's facilities along this 'detour' route.
You actually rely on these overpriced GPS devices with monthly fees?
