Bowtie- Is respected as the Master of UHF reception due to the physicality of size. It uses more than one driven element to collect the signal, and the increase in the size of the reflector and number of driven elements (the bowties) directly impacts its gain characteristics. The size correlation is that compared to the electrical wavelength of the frequencies desired in reception. This is as Large as they get! As UHF is higher in frequency and shorter in wavelength, a respectable size antenna can mathematically be gargantuan with respect to frequency, yet physically be manageable for installation. The design is unique to UHF however, as the translation to the larger wavelength of VHF frequencies lends itself impractical in size. For this reason, Bowties are poor performers with regards to VHF frequency reception, but absolutely the best for UHF. Small Bowties are the least obtrusive to aesthetics and are wide beam-width to capture sources of signal diverse in azimuth (direction). Large Bowties simply intercept a large portion of the signal wave as it passes by and is most efficient in its ability to funnel the signal through multiple Driven elements into the cable where you need it. Many Customers have seen success in using combining more than one antenna's signals together (a 2-way splitter used in reverse). For Example; with a UHF for Signals in one Direction and a VHF in another (or two UHF's, or two VHF's, so forth and and so on). This has given many the ability to capture signals in different directions, yet without the need of a Rotor to go back and Forth and in between. Any Model and Make of Antenna(s) can be combined in this manner and will maximize the Gains coming out of all Antennas utilized in this fashion! Remember that this Antenna is Unique as it has an adjustable Beamwidth and can aim in 2 different directions, comprised of Two separate Panels that are essentially Antennas unto themselves. Users of this Antenna report that with a Pre-amp, they capture HD TV Stations 100 miles away, and that with a regular distribution Amplifier, over 50 miles away when the antenna is only 10 feet off the ground!
