another antenna question

hello all.

For the past 10 years I have been spending weekends at family property in brown county, indiana. our old school tv with rabbit ears finally went out, we picked up the main channels-- 4, 6, 8, 13. i just bought a new tv, and now i need to figure out what antenna to buy. The cabin the tv is in is in the woods, about 1.5 miles off the main road. The property we own has no mailing address, so i dont know what the address is. But, i got online and found what i think to be close coordinates. Here is what tv fool suggested...

The following is a Teleview recommendation for broadcast Tv reception.

A Simple reception situation.

Above the roof or higher then the roof aim a Winegard HD7698P antenna with no preamplifier at about 0 degrees magnetic compass direction.

Here is how to aim antennas , http://www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html.

Here are some above the roof antenna mounts , http://www.ronard.com/909911.html , http://www.ronard.com/Triopods%200703/4712.html ,http://www.ronard.com/34424560.html , http://www.ronard.com/ychim.html , http://www.ronard.com.

Buy the ronard antenna mounts at solidsignal by typing the word ronard in the solidsignal search box.

Here are some places to buy antennas and etc. , http://www.solidsignal.com , http://www.amazon.com , http://www.winegarddirect.com.

As always , trees and tree leaves do a real fine job of reducing or blocking Tv reception and so do buildings and other obstructions.

It is best to install the antenna at a location that has the least amount to no amount of obstructions of any type or kind in the direction of reception.

The Tv/s Must Channel Scan for the Digital Broadcast Tv Channels , sometimes named the 'Air Channels' or 'Antenna Channels' in the Tv setup menu because the Tv transmissions travel through the air from the transmitting antenna to the receiving antenna.

DO NOT channel scan for cable tv channels.
