Help with antenna selection

I live on a large hill but single story house surrounded by large oaks. Just not sure how much antenna I would need. Would rather get your sound advice versus guessing on amazon. Looking to receive nbc cbs abc pbs and fox. Already have small post on side of house for wireless internet if I need to put outside.

I don't think there's much good news there. 10' is pretty low, and there are not a lot of strong stations in your vicinity. There are quite a few stations at ca 30 magnetic, but many of them are impossibly weak, at least at that low height.

Are you willing to go higher? Even if you are, I'm not sure that's a solution. You'll have to go a lot higher to get above the trees, unless you can aim between them.

Sorry forgot to change height last time, I could possibly go higher. Most channels are in green but abc is yellow and nbc in the red. What could be expected with roof mount antenna? Wouldn't channels in green come in easy? Probably couldn't get above trees without spending more than directv would cost me for quite a while.
