    +1 on this... my experience, Glomax is hard to beat to gain a few miles

    I swapped mine out to a Shakespeare 19" last year and managed to pull in channels finally. We don't have a lot of channels in my neck of the woods, but my glomex got 0, while the Shakespeare pulled in a dozen or so.

    With the glomax that is original equipment... we pickup all Detroit channels on PIB ...approx 48 miles away as the crow flys. When I am in Port Clinton 57 miles from Detroit, I can’t pick up any Detroit channels. However I can pickup all Toledo channels 37 miles away... but I can’t pickup Toledo from PIB approx 40 miles away. Bit of a pain because you have to reprogram the TV’s.....
    Point is I think a lot of factors play into reception...area... line of sight ..topography, etc

    I have a Shakespeare in my garage that was on my boat for a week, with booster
    Not sure of the size but if you are interested I will measure it.
    I will give it to you for $ 100.00 + shipping
    Can send you pictures if you want

    Resurrected my 2008 Flomax. I also replaced my 2008 LG TV with a supersonic 24" 1080p for $125 that is dual AC/DC. it fit perfectly on the 290 h0rizontal pole. I'm approximatly 40 miles north of atlanta on lake lanier and im picking up 45 channels. Thanks to the Sea Ray Forum for recommending that i get an AC/DC tv.
