What customers say about "Key Specs"
Antennas Direct 91XG 70 Mile Range Yagi Directional UHF DTV Antenna
  • This is a great product for my situation. I live on a hilltop with one tower at 40 miles (closest) and the rest of the towers range between, 80-100 miles.
  • With this antenna I am getting reception of channels I wanted from 90 miles away.
  • It worked so well I ordered a second antenna to pick up stations from another direction that were not coming in reliably with my old VHF/ UHf antenna.
  • This antenna has to be the longest range directional UHF antenna out there. I live 65 miles from the transmitters on Sutro Tower San Francisco that broadcast all the UHF stations I get.
  • Get pretty good range over water, up to 65 miles... picture perfect HD for sure.
Antennas Direct DB8 8-Element High Gain Bowtie TV Antenna
  • The Antennas Direct DB8 is a great antenna. Antennas Direct claims this antenna is multi-directional and has a range of up to 70 miles or more.
  • I have been using this antenna for just under a month and I am very satisfied with its performance. The television stations in my area range from 22 to 47 miles from my house and I live in heavily wooded and hilly terrain.
  • I live 60 miles from the major TV stations. So the advertized range seemed good.
  • I placed in on my old antenna pole and it is about 25 to 30ft high. Excellent long range antenna.
  • I am very pleased with the reception i am receiving, after reading others rewiews i decided to get this one.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Antennas Direct 91XG 70 Mile Range Yagi Directional UHF DTV Antenna
  • The whole thing is made of lightweight aluminum and plastic, so weighs much less than our old CM4228 does.
  • It's very lightweight and can be mounted alone easily but for safety sake, you might try to use a helper on a ladder if you need to. I'd recommend this based on what I've experienced so far.
  • The antenna is lightweight and not particularly sturdy, and it's hard to say how many years it can survive with the harsh weather it will see, but right out of the box it performs better than expected.
  • It is very light. When I started to assemble it, I thought no way will this thing work, it's too lightweight! But it just works perfect!
  • The pieces are super light weight and it looks cheaply made. The various pieces are assembled using wing nuts and it just didn't strike me as a piece of high-tech equipment.
Antennas Direct DB8 8-Element High Gain Bowtie TV Antenna
  • Compact and it works great. It is also easy to assemble and to mount.
  • Much more compact than a yagi, better quality on upper channels even if they're not HD.
  • Well made, light weight, and simple, with thumb-turn hardware. Took a while to figure out the assembly instructions.
  • The device is very light weight and easy to carry up to most antenna poles. I am very satisfied with this product.
  • Works great, light weight, grabs signal from all directions, just need a straight pole to attach to.

What customers say about "Features"
Antennas Direct 91XG 70 Mile Range Yagi Directional UHF DTV Antenna
  • It seems well built, and doesn't require any tools to assembly or adjust, which is nice.
  • This antenna is definitely worth the price. We don't watch much TV, but in weather emergencies, this will definitely be handy.
  • The weather gets very windy but the thing has held up admirably.
  • I can tell you that mine has been up for three years in the NE and we get plenty of bad weather here and it has held up fantastically.
  • Low wind loading; we endured a major storm recently with no problems. Very pleased.
Antennas Direct DB8 8-Element High Gain Bowtie TV Antenna
  • This is a true performer antenna. Once set, you just forget about it because it doesn't miss a beat in catching signals under any weather and even through thick tile roofing like mine.
  • We hooked this up with the old one only because 2 has to be better then one.... after a few months we no longer know when bad weather is coming.
  • I have only had this antenna for little over a month but so far so good, we have had some bad wind but so far it's standing up to the bad weather .
  • I got every channel TVFool indicated I would. Also, the antenna fits nicely in the attic, no weather induced problems.
  • Signal quality in rainy weather is excellent. I did not use any signal amplifier and have (5) TV drops hooked up and the split does not degrade the signal quality.
