Need antenna advice

Hey Forum,

Just like a lot of people on here we are ditching satellite and going back to antenna to reduce expenses and streaming/DVD's for entertainment. Looks like most of my broadcast towers are ~70 miles away across relatively flat terrain. Figure 15-20 ft antenna height. More if needed. Can only afford to do this once so I want to get the best antenna possible which may not necessarily be the cheapest.

I recommend a 4 way Channel Master CM3414 distribution amplifier. At http://www.channelmasterstore.com or one of the other web sites to buy antennas and etc. , If you need a converter box etc. , http://forum.tvfool.com/showthread.php?t=380
