Question Need Help with Antenna/Stand

Need a little help picking out an antenna/stand for my house. I have a problem with Comcast that has pushed me to the point of cancelling their service all together. They like to bill me and not give me any service. Anyway here is the provided link http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...81a3657160c768.
I have an older HD outdoor /indoor antenna that has the wire mesh back and a “figure eight” in the middle. I hooked it up to my house following antennaweb info and got all suggested channels except 32, 2, and 7. I would like to get any suggestions for a good antenna/preamp/install stand. Thank you

Your antenna is a Antennas Direct C-2. It should get 32, and 7, but not 2. To pick up 32 try re-aiming it. To get channel 2 add a VHF antenna, perhaps a Y5-7-13. Add the antennas together with a UVSJ.

I'd suggest an eave mount, or a wall mount with the mast extending above the roof line.

Tv Reception

Read and understand this about REAL and Virtual tv channels. http://forum.tvfool.com/showthread.php?t=695 . I suggest a Winegard HD 7082P All Channel Antenna pointed East because all the channels you will like receive are to the east. And go from channel 2 to 61. Put the antenna on the roof. The most often used roof type mounts are the tripod mount , chimney mount and the eave mount. http://www.solidsignal.com , http://www.starkelectronic.com , http://www.amazon.com
