I know I'll need more to get those BC stations....

How about this Winegard HD-9032 antenna, the URL shows it has good low-UHF gain at almost 14.9 for channel 14?! that's incredible... is this credible stats for this antenna? And channel 32 at 16.3 db gain?

14 CH
32 CH
50 CH
dB gain over reference dipole
14.9 16.3 15.7 11.5
