This is a good medium distance antenna. Its reflector allows much more radiation out the back compared to the Channel Master 4-Bay. This in turn lowers its forward gain. It out performs the Channel Master below channel 28.
The combination of high gain, low weight, and low wind resistance make this antenna an excellent choice when a high tower is necessary.
On a lot with many obstructions (trees) searching for a strong signal spot is advantageous. But the best spot might be a difficult place to mount an antenna. The low weight of this antenna is a big help in these situations.
