I just acquired a "new" in the-box, never assembled Crushcraft A144-10T 
"VHF Twist" antenna. It includes the cabling to allow the user to select 
left or right hand polarization. My questions are numerous:

1.) How is the performance on this antenna, compared to more modern 

2.) If I were going to install it inside my attic, should I chose left 
or right hand polarization?

3.) Any caveats or things to watch out for?

Any information that could be provided would be great. I was thrilled 
when a friend stopped by and asked me if I'd be interested in the 
antenna. Good price too.
