Need to improve spotty reception on Fox and CW. Both come in now, but with frequent breakups. Sub 50% on the homeworks tuner signal meter. NBC is fine at 65%.

Currently using a Winegard-HD7694P-High-Definition-Antenna for uhf, and 2nd antenna for vhf, ABC and CBS, which are good and not a concern.

Both antenna are attic mounted, and pretty much need to stay that way.

Looking at either of these,

Stellar Labs HDTV 60 Mile Fringe Bowtie Television Antenna | 30-2425 (302425) | Stellar Labs

Solid Signal Xtreme Signal HDB4X 4 Bay VHF/UHF HDTV Antenna (HDB4X) from Solid Signal

The stellar labs antenna is cheaper. . Is there any real difference?

The mounting bracket is different. Otherwise, they look suspiciously similar. I suspect they are both produced by the same (Chinese) supplier.

The first thing I would try is moving your antenna. Fox and CW are very weak and 2 edge. Edge signals are quite fussy. Moving your antenna even just a few feet up/down or N/S/E/W could make a big difference.

I don't think a 4 bay would offer much improvement over your current antenna.
