OK, just had my first on the road actual use of the antenna. I'm in the Rolling Hills Casino parking lot and aimed it back towards Corning and got 3 lights on the signal strength meter. Moved it a bit and got 4 lights. Scanned channels and got many. Most aren't ones that I'd watch at home but I did get the news and weather which is always the prime goal. So I'm calling my whole package, the antenna, the mast and the TV running on 12 volts, a success.
