I just built and installed this yesterday. VERY easy to put together!!! Very light in weight. One suggestion: It did not come with lock washers, I purchased my own and put them on. I live in a high wind area and did not want the wing nuts wiggling/coming loose. Reception is pretty good/great, only one major station still breaking up on me a little. (Probably just needs a little tweeking on the alignment.) But a MAJOR improvement to the small indoor flat antenna I did have. Overall VERY satisfied! Hint: You can probably build and install by yourself, but having 2 people is definatly a help.
Light weight, easy to assemble. Best antenna for the price/performance.

I have been installing antennas for five years for my business. This by far is my favorite antenna. 80 to 100 percent signal strength on every channel available. Even the two high VHF channels. It works great.
antenna is better than the 2805 lava with built in amp...the HD91x with no amp works better than the lava I had, it picks up signal 25% more than my lava. The vhf also picks up 75 mile away uhf so far over 150+ miles (Shelby, NC to Charleston, SC) (WTAT 24 Fox) good antenna, worth the price thanks solid signal.....MIKE
this is an excellent antenna. I get rock solid reception and have already made believers to my friends. 65 miles is not a problem at all. I have already sent 3 friends your way.
Best performing HD ant ever!

I put one these antennas in an attic about 50 miles out from Atlanta and it gave signal strength of 75 to 100 on every channel. This is awesome to be in an attic. This ant is a game changer. I have used over 12 different antennas in various areas outside of Atlanta. This one is the best ever!
Best of the BEST
I GET STATION 80MILES OUT IN NY CITY from lndian orchard ma so it is the antenna to buy well done solidsignal Ken
Probably one of the best UHF directional antennas you can buy for the money
Excellent UHF reception...better than the 8 bay array style antenna for more gain if every station you want is generally in one bearing (I've also used the Solid Signal HDB8X 8 Bay antenna, which is a better choice if you need to point in two different directions for UHF reception). If you are looking to make a choice between antennas, I'd offer the following info: All your stations as indicated by tvfool.com are along a rough single bearing and are UHF, and you have the space for an antenna this long and no longer, get the HDB91X. This makes a good attic mount antenna with a J pipe, which you can also get from solid signal. It says it will pick up VHF, but you had better be pretty close to the VHF station without things in the way...say under 18 miles. You have LOTS of room in the attic lengthwise and pointing in the direction of your stations along a single bearing, buy the HBU55 antenna, which will also cover you for high VHF and UHF If you need to point in two different directions for UHF signals, get the Solid Signal Xtreme HDB8X 8 Bay UHF. For high VHF Ch 7-13, if you don't have the room for an HBU55, it pays to get a dedicated VHF antenna. I'd recommend the Antennacraft Y10-7-13 Highband-Broadband VHF TV Antenna, or its shorter version, the Antennacraft Y5-7-13 Highband-Broadband VHF Yagi TV Antenna for Channels 7-13 (Y5-7-13). NOTE, this is for HIGH VHF only, ch 7-13. For digital TV in the US, all the rest are UHF. To combine VHF and UHF separate antennas, use a UVSJ UHF VHF Band Separator/Combiner, OR an amplifier with separate VHF and UHF inputs, like the RCA preamp code TVPRAMP1R.
That ANTENNA IS THE BEST ONE TO BUY
WELL I HAVE A CM7777AMP INLINE WITH THE HDB91X I AM IN INDIAN ORCHARD MASS THE ANTENNA IS 65FT HI AND I GET CHannels 80MILES OUT IN CT ION 69,1 and out of ny city GET TV well done solidsignal ps buy know
Very simple assembly, really light weight

It does get the signal but it is not as good as my old Channel Master 8-bay UHF antenna but then again it was half the cost. I am 42 to 53 miles away from the the TX towers so need long range antenna.
UHF can be up to 68 miles on a normal atmospheric day, 100 miles on an exceptional night.

My setup is a stacked VHF 7 to 13 yagi with 10 elements and this antenna. They are hooked up to a CM 7777 dual input pre-amp. Results from ground level with the setup facing NE...it brings in WNBC and WWOR 9 which are about 68 miles from me with weak to moderate signal levels and just an occasional dropout depending on the atmospheric conditions. Occasionally at ground level, I will get stations as far away as the Central part of Long Island (55 WLNY). All Philly stations come in strong with no drop outs with the unit at ground level facing NE. With the dual input setup, I am not sure what this would do by itself on the VHF band.
