Ok Guys.. this is a big one but we'll see how it goes. I am looking at pulling in all Tucson + Phoenix stations. I don't care about VHF as I already have an antenna I will use for the 2-3 VHF stations that will be broadcasting in DTV here. For reference, my zip code is 85742.
I was going to order a 4228HD but CM is not shipping them out to any retailer for a couple of weeks. I got impatient and started looking at the AntennaCraft U8000.
I have direct line of sight (no hills/mountains/anything) to the antenna's in phoenix (89 miles away) and I know for a fact they get picked up on a 4221 with an ancient pre-amp at my father's house a few miles away.
However -- he does not pick up all of the channels from phoenix with his 4221 and ancient preamp. I am a few miles closer and have a more direct line of sight.
I am wondering what your opinions and experiences are with the antenna's listed in the topic title. I would love to get the 4228HD but I don't want to wait for it unless they made some changes that justify waiting for it over another antenna that will perform equally.
Let's hear it
