Great, fixed my issue
Finally an antenna that solved my reflection problem. We live between downtown and the TV towers which caused a lot of interference with reflected signals.

when I opened the box I thought this thing will not last... I was wrong. I'm in mountainous N E Ga. The antenna is 30 ft in the air, with a channel master preamp.. My location is 1000 ft above sea level, which also helps. I receive Atlanta stations up 75 miles away with seldom a problem... Very good and sturdy antenna..
Attic mounted antenna gets 21-33 channels on this antenna.

I pick up all of the local Youngstown stations, 4 PBS stations in Akron-Canton, 2 & 2.2 in Pittsburgh almost every day on this antenna. On a clear days, I can get the other two major channels in Pittsburgh. 11-1, 11-2, 11-3. On those days I will also receive 53-1, 53-2, 53-2. This antenna is most likely over achieving for being mounted in my attic and considering the terrain. I also have a booster on it as was suggested by an employee of this company. My coords have to be on the money to get Pittsburgh because of type of antenna it is.
Solid reasonably priced product.
I purchased this to replace an older Log-periodic (very large) antenna. This product has the ability to tilt, which I needed because our house is located in a hollow with tall trees (85' to 100'+). The reception is solid, but we still get some multi-path distortion, but better than previous antenna. This antenna is also smaller and lighter, so I was able to mount it about 5' higher than previous antenna. Our local ABC is on VHF, and is relatively close - this antenna gets this channel from about 15 to 20 degrees off axis (in sidelobe) most of the time without needing to rotate the antenna, however I bought this to (hopefully) get our CBS channel which is 45-50 miles away, but the signal will go from perfect to none during the morning and some afternoons (probably tropospheric affects). This channel is also highly sensitive to multi-path (channel drops when cars travel up road or planes fly overhead). Not sure if an 8 or 16-bay antenna would help in this situation. All-in-all, yes I do recommend this antenna, and seems to work better than previous set-up.

Receives channels 10 and 12 in the high VHF band which eliminates the need for a second antenna. We are about 27 miles from the broadcasting sites.
Delivery time was great. The antenna, bit disappointed in quality and installation directions, but fared okay. NO real change from other antennas I have tried. It tends to drop channels, just like the rest. Anyway, in a better location it might do better.
The only way to go XG91
FIRST I BOUGHT A HDB91XG WELL I THINK THAT THE XG91 IS THE SAME ANTENNA THEY BOTH GET STATION 80MILES OUT IN NY CITY AND CT ION 69,1 SO IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO BUY ONE AGAIN IT WOULD BE THE HDB91X$$$$ THANKS solidsignal ps this is the best antenna FOfthe money and a cm-7777AMP with it is a good pick
77 miles from Dallas(Cedar Hill) antenna farm, mounted 10ft high, with RCA preamp, very happy.
I'm a believer - sold on this antenna!

Wow -- the 91xg has saved the day! Our main Raleigh stations are 40+ miles away, and we have to shoot an antenna straight through a dense area of tall trees at the rear of our property. (Have avoided a tower mounting -- keeping the antenna on the roof ~ 23 feet high.) Digital transition caused lots of signal problems, esp with wind moving tree leaves. A good deal of multipath. Since one station is on ch 11, we switched from a RadShack unit to an AntennaCraft HBU44 (didn't help much), then added a rotator (PBS station is in a different direction), a distribution amp and a Winegard LNA-200 preamp. These helped somewhat but didn't eliminate signal breakup from Raleigh on windy days. We avoided the 91xg for a long time because of the ch-11 station, but finally gave it a try. WOW -- I wish I hadn't waited so long! This antenna eliminated all of the UHF signal breakups, and we can even pick up ch 11 pretty well if we aim slightly off-axis to avoid the trees. The 91xg is a HUGE improvement! Can't say enough good things about it!
Great UHF antenna. Will be buying another one of these soon. I have been eyeballing one of these for a while now with all the rave and great reviews to go with it. Im now a believer too.
