Antenna recommendation

I am looking at converting off of satellite. I need an antenna for local channel reception. I would prefer to have an indoor antenna, prefferably the Amazon Basics ultra thin one. My tv fool analysis is:

According to the way I read that, I will not have a difficulty with this antenna. My question is whether to get the 35 mile or the 50 mile (amplified) one. Eventually, I might take the output from the antenna through a splitter and distribute to my other 2 TVs.

Thank you!

You're may be way too optimistic about what an indoor antenna can offer unless you're in a perfect location. Your TVFool plot suggests you are not.

The Tr-Cities area usually requires a large, conventional, all-channel combo antenna aimed at Holston Mountain. You will likely require a rooftop installation for reliable results.
