Well I ordered the 91XG from antennasdirect ! I will let you all know how it works.
Are you going to use a rotor for the two locations you are going to be getting stations from?

John,

be aware that currently VOOM OTA mapping cannot do two DMAs. The mapping in your PG pretty much determines which DMA you would get. With the New Software Release (coming soon), you will be able to add digital channels manually from two different DMAs.

Most seem to prefer the CM 777 VHF and UHF preamp. They also have a UHF only 775 model. The thinking is that in the future when some stations change back to VHF you could still use the 777 even if all your digitals are UHF now. Here's a link....

Yes, also one of the reasons the CM preamps seem to be favored is they have a real low signal/noise ratio........
