I challenge your assertion that a bay antenna beats a Yagi-Uda at the low end. The Repack is eliminating the top half of what bay antennas were designed to

I merely state what i have witnessed in my 40 years of installing
and designing dozens of cable head ends and hotel and apartment matv systems.
There are locations where long boom yagis are still the best choice.
But there are also many locations where a phased array works better.
As always it all depends on your exact location.

I moved my Channel Master 8 bay old style 4228 from being mounted on a ground level shed up 20’ to a mast on the top of our RV shelter. Didn’t help reception. Still get some pixelation.
I think you have much too much antenna for the distance.
So these flat antennas certainly do have a wide reception angle.
It is a blessing if you have many angles and a curse if you have multipath problems.

I've never had to contend with trees but it appears that they do their share of damage. I guess that's why so many RV facilities offer cable TV hookups.

Of course it is up to the reader to determine if they're really looking to install a four figure "antenna system" or something more economically feasible.
