Antenna recommendation

Hi

I am looking for a recommendation on an antenna for my house. I am concerned because I live on a lake, so I am kind of low, with regard to the terrain. I plan on an eave-mounted outside antenna, about 20 feet from the ground (a little higher if needed), but like I said, I am concerned about my low elavation.

My location specific TVfool report is at this link:

I'd like to get as many Boston stations as possible. Rhode Island, Connecticut & NY9Albany) would be a bonus)

I would like to connect 2 TVs to this antenna

Thank you in advance for your assistance

I would use an Antennas Direct DB4e. Use a beginning aim point of about 105 compass. the wide beam-width of the DB4e should allow you to see Boston and Providence signals.

There are also several High-VHF signals available. I'd point an Antennacraft Y10713 at 115, expect to get real CH-12 & 13, hoping for real CH-10 as well.

If you mount both antennas on the same mast, the UHF goes above the VHF antenna. At least 3' of separation between the antennas, more is better.

Combine the two antennas with a UVSJ followed by an Antennas Direct CPA-19 preamp.

3starinc.com has a complete selection of mounting hardware.

This should easily drive two TV's.

Here are a connection options when installing a remotely powered preamp in a system equipped with a splitter:

And splitters that will work in this type of system: http://www.antennasdirect.com/store/splitters.html

If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
