both RS 1 as bad as the other. Omni directional is absolute BS. Technically impossible to make a good omni directional TV aerial. The other issue there is no substitute for element size. You cannot amplify something that is not there. Without decent elements you have nothing to amplify. While Saturn Omni may claim it can do vertical omni directional it cannot be done with their design or any design satisfactorily that would not cost 1,000's of $. If this rubbish worked everybody would have them on their houses. You need to be right on top of the TV transmitter for that rubbish to work.

12V ACTIVE COLOUR ANTENNA UHF/VHF/FM $49.95 is quite reasonable and better than what you have asked about in performance.

One of the best units does vertical and horizontal and cross polarisation is the
DIGIMATCH VHF/UHF Explorer also available from DSE under part no L4024 $69.95. The Explorer is specifically made for the digital channels and because of the technical excellence of the unit out performs aerials larger in size. The design of the aerial elements are covered by patents because of their unique design that makes them so good.

Hear hear to the Digimatch. I have had one for years and it is excellent.

It takes up a bit of room when assembled so I travel with it attached to it's telescopic mast. (old swimming pool net handle).

Does the Digimatch UHF/VHF Explorer require a booster?

It is important to always maintain a sense of proportion
