Some users do quite well with the eggbeater setup
I started out with the UHF & VHF eggbeater setup with preamps and iC910. It worked OK for the FM birds, but I found it lacking when it came to the sideband birds. I didn't go big, I now use a rotor with dual Arrow antennas. The most important part for me was to purchase preamps with built in band filtering.

I will have a excellent path to the east.  I would but a preamps in the uhf and    vhf lines at the antenna. Doug WD8Z  En85gc
