Antenna recommendation needed

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...0b8675789700b2

Please give me your recommendation for an outdoor (1 or 2) antenna.
I want to receive high vhs and uhf from a cluster of staions aboutv 25 miles away. Would a 2 or 4 bat antenna be better than a yagi type antenna?
Thanks

Tv antennas and Tv reception

If the house is wood frame with wood or vinyl siding and has no foil backed insulation , then a Channel Master CM 4010 or TERK HDTVi non amplified indoor antenna aimed at about 275 degree magnetic compass will receive all of the tv channels. Here is how to aim indoor non amplified antennas. http://www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html . . If the house is , concrete , concrete blocks , cinder blocks , bricks , metal frame , metal siding , stucko Wire , foil backed insulation , metal roof . solar panels , then the reception will be reduced or blocked. Install a ANT751 antenna above the roof aimed at about 275 degrees magnetic compass. The tv must scan for , Digital Broadcast Tv Channels , sometimes called 'air channels'. Do Not scan for cable tv channels.
