Help iwth signal analysis and antenna choice


New to this, but have spent some time reading the threads here, trying to educate myself. I've included my radar plot, and it looks like I've got good signal from a long distance in one direction, and weaker signal from a shorter distance in another direction. Hoping someone can help me understand which would be the better option, and which antenna to go with.

I'm out in the foothills north of san diego, ca... so it's either SD or LA. Looks like I'll only be able to get 2 or 3 channels from either direction, unless there's something I don't understand yet... but a few is better than zero...

Channels 7 and 11 to the north would be ok, or channels 8 and 10 to the south would also work.

I've decided on an exterior antenna location on my roof that would put it 25 feet above ground, and I'm on top of a hill with no obstructions close to me.

Thanks very much in advance.
