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.
