I had posted the 9095 vs 4248 question on another thread so I appreciate your answer. I will give the 9095 a try also. Thanks.

Hey Rick. I saw your other post on the other thread. Just want to let you know that Pace Electronics in Chatsworth also carries Winegard. That is where I got all my Channelmaster and Winegard antennas.

I have not used used the 4228, but I have used the 4248 and the Winegard 9095. The Winegard for me was a far superior product compared to the Channelmaster.

Pace is a wholesaler and will only sell to businesses. They had Video Electronics (818-368-3761, 10328 Reseda near Devonshire) give me call. They got me a Winegard 8800 and a CM7775 the same day from Pace. They said Pace was out of the 4228. Not sure on the 9095 or 4248.

Mike, why do you prefer the 9095 over the 4248. I've got a 4248 and am not really satisfied that it's directional enough. I can find no description of the 9095 on Winegard's Web site. Do you have an online link to a description? Thanks, Art

Here's some info on the 9095:
http://www.starkelectronic.com/wca9095.htm


I have the 9095 with the 4700 UHF amp and receive the Baltimore stations with minor pixelations in the winter, but leaves on trees make it unwatchable. I just installed a CM 4251 parascope with CM 7775 UHF amp and receive Baltimore consistently. I expect it will still be good after the leaves come out. Of course, I receive all Washington stations. My location is Ravensworth, just outside the beltway off Braddock Road.

On another thread they had the link to the CM antennas including the 4248 as: http://www.starkelectronic.com/cmg5.htm


I believe my problem is multipath. Specifically, Mt Wilson is 8 deg south of due east from my house. There is a pass in the hills at 25 deg south of due east. I believe I am getting two signals one over the hills and one throught the pass. Since I get 8 digital channels great but only CBS is not perfect all the time and CBS transmitts with the most power, this also leads me to believe I have a multipath problem.


The 9095 has a 32 deg wide beam at channel 60 and the 5248 has a 20 deg wide beam at channel 60. Thus the 4248 would probably reject the multipath better...I think.


Any comments from antenna experts?

at the moment i am receiving all of the baltimore stations except for fox wbff-dt with a 69 dollar radio shack indoor antenna with some pixilazation. my question is do you think the 9095 is too big for a townhouse since i am receiving baltimore stations? should i go for a smaller antenna?
