I haven't tried that particular RCA unit, but I can tell you just by looking at it that VHF high performance will be compromised.No antenna, depsite fancy design nor cost, whether high or low, can overcome the laws of physics. You can try the one studman mentioned, bear in mind that no antenna is ideal for all situations. Also, moving it slightly in position can make all the difference.
Try the one studman mentioned, we use one of those for WOLO and it works well.
Here, I have a square shooter, and get ALL the locals fine, excpet WTVI(PBS)
which is on VHF 11. Since there are 2 other PBS here, (which is still 1.8 too much) I don;t care about WTVI.
