Antenna Suggestion in Eastern PA

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...f1f026b2fbb4cd

I was planning on getting an indoor antenna for my location (Winegard FlatWave Amped Indoor Amplified HDTV Antenna or Mohu Leaf 50 Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna).
Looking for mostly Philly stations.
Will either of these work for my situation?
Thanks!!

An indoor antenna at 30 miles is asking alot. Both of the antennas that you are considering are not rated to pick up low band VHF. WPVI is on low band.

Luck with the Lead

I'm in Northern Delaware, ~33-45 miles from the various transmitters, and on one TV with a direct window exposure to the Philly area, I have fairly good though variable luck just above ground level with an amplified Leaf (3, 10, 17, 23, 35, 49, 57, 65 and their sub-channels). I have not set this up permanently, just experimentation until I cut the cord this week, but I was surprised to get WPVI the other day when playing around. Have not replicated channel 6 again, and TV12 never appears, but your results may be better being closer if you have a fairly clear shot- worth the test perhaps.
