The solution is finding the right local dealer or installer, who has experience with the particular local market. You need a dealer, who has the user's best interest in mind and one who does not see a cash cow. A lot of times, a low cost particular model of antenna is best in one service area, but the dealer will sell only what he or she has in stock.

Large and expensive is not always the best answer.
