Previous house was easy, 99% of stations were in 1 direction, now it seems I may need like a 8 bow tie antenna that. I could angle each half in different directions to pull in more stations. I was looking at a DB8e BUT if ya'll have other opinions, Im here and listening. Thank you in advance for helping me out. Here's my TVFOOL.COM report...
In general, indoor antennas are temporary band aids for reception. You are not likely to get all the "local" stations with an indoor antenna nor will you get consistent reception, free of pixels, on those few stations you do receive.
You need a Hi VHF and UHF antenna combination. The Channel Master 3016 would fit your needs at a good price. for around $55.00
The Winegard 7694p would also be a good choice, around $60.00

The big questions for you is how close are any trees in a Northerly direction and how tall are those trees????? Are there any hills or mountains to the immediate North of you??? How much are you willing to spend for good reception???
