Unfortunately, the more "gain" an antenna has,
the narrower its angle of reception will be.
This is an unavoidable fact.
So, what is better, having to add a rotator, or losing signal strength?
I would go for the rotator.
NO antenna can receive TV signals from 150 miles under normal conditions.
Any such claim is pure B.S.
The practical limit is about 70 miles,
and that is over flat and absolutely clear terrain.
Any trees, buildings, hills, or other obstructions
will reduce the distance over which usable reception can occur.
