Which antenna?

I was wondering what my best options would be to get most of these channels?
I have a 30 foot tower, and I have 20 feet of poles I can use. So I guess my question is what antenna/antennas should I use to get these channels?

Thank you,
Adam

Y10-7-13 for VHF 91XG for UHF. Aim them at 178 degrees. Put the 91XG higher than the VHF antenna. Use a 7777 preamp to combine and amplify the signals. Fox and CBS will be weak, but should work fine.

Do you know what's on the LPTV channels?

I was`thinking about using the Y10-7-13 for VHF 91XG for UHF antennas, after reading some other posts. I just wanted to have a second opinion.

As for what's on the LPTV channels? I have no idea!? I am new to Alaska, only been here a couple of months.. I will let you know when I get my antennas.

Thanks for the help

Usually, you can Google the LP station's call letters and find either a Wiki entry or some other description of what programming, if any, is on them

The majority of that category of stations are often religious, ethnics, shopping, or some similar type of content that is of interest of a narrow segment of the public. Sometimes, they're used as translators or for original local content.

Antenna help again

Would the Y10-7-13 for VHF 91XG for UHF, still be the best choice for my address? I have been using a used VHF/UHF antenna, that was given to us, so we did not buy the 2 separate antennas. We were able to get all the channels, except Fox, so we were happy for the time being. This last winter we had too much snow ice build up on the antenna and bent part of my tower down, and busted the antenna. So were in the market for a new antenna/antennas.

Thank you for any replies,
Adam
