tigerbangs, just thought you'd like to know I'm doing pretty well with a VIP-305 WTNH-DT. I know you recomended a 306 but I already had the 305 on order when you posted back. Anyway I'm getting about 60-70% sig strength w/o an amp. Probably not enought head room for bad weather or when the foliage comes back but it's something I can work with. I'll be getting a 7777 if I decide this is a permanent set-up. I'm curious about the CM-4228. I found some plots of the gain and it does do pretty well at channel 10. I may get one for better headroom on UHF anyway so I'm going to play with getting WTNH-DT on it. Thanks for the advice.
