Quick antenna recommendation?

Hope this is the right sub fora ...

My tvfool report: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...90380a9ce59f38

My assessment is I can use a very cheap attic mount, like a GE 33692 or an RCA ANT705E and I'll do well, except for the single VHF channel that I don't care about.

It doesn't seem like a large attic antenna is going to provide any additional signals out my predominate 285 degree axis ... does it?

Money isn't the issue - but, has to be in attic and was just making it easy of myself!

Thanks in advance.

Quick answer

Try the GE 33692 or the GE 29884

If you have an aluminum thermal barrier in your roof, an attic antenna will not work.

I have been working on a battery pack to power a small TV during a power failure:

It works with my GE 34792 indoor antenna.

That has a usb plug on the front face of it my Kenwood.Dpx502bt.has one I pluge!
My I paid in to it and it charges it and it puts out sound for music when I go on YouTube.

That single VHF channel is the local FOX affiliate out of Mobile, WALA. Are you sure you can dispense with it?
