You have stations from multiple directions. There is no perfect antenna. The easy answer is a 7-69 antenna with a rotor.

HD-7694P
HBU-33

Another option is two of these antennas, one aimed at 160 the other at 32 degrees with an A/B switch at the TV set.

Rotors are clumsy, but so are A/B switches.

TVfool also shows 4 LPTV stations. Do you know what programming is on them?

Tv Reception

RTN Retro Tv Network KWCE-LP UHF-27 is a analog transmitter. MyNetwork K47DW UHF-47 is shown both as a analog and digital transmitter. TBN Trinity Broadcasting Network K45IY UHF 45 is a analog transmitter. Unknown programing KBAC UHF 41 is a digital transmitter. I recommend a 2 antenna solution , 2 Winegard HD7695P antennas. And a Radio Shack remote control A/B coax switch box. http://www.solidsignal.com , http://www.starkelectronic.com , http://www.warrenelectronics.com , http://www.amazon.com As all ways , good roof mounts are the Tri-pod mount , the chimney mount and the eave mount. Put the 2 antennas at least 6 foot distance on separate mounts. Point one antenna at magnetic compass 28 and the other antenna at 127 magnetic compass. The 2 antenna solution is the easiest to operate. Read and understand this http://forum.tvfool.com/showthread.php?t=695

Would you expect that will work for CBS on channel 8 at a distance of 72.4 miles without LOS?
