Talking Advice on antenna

House is a bungalow with two existing tower options:
- A 30ft attached to the house
- A 60ft tower in the back yard located at 225 ft from the house

I am of course interested in receiving as many stations as possible. Looking for advice on best antenna/equipment for the job.

Here is my TVFools information. Any help would be appreciated and many thanks for this service, this is just great, great forum!

I don't see a reason to run over 200 feet. You already have line-of-sight views of the available local signals that are not plagued with adjacent or co-channel interference issues.

A modest size 'all-channel' antenna pointed at about compass north should give you a long list of stations (look at the 'Pending' All channels option of your TVFR)

If you are interested in the US stations, you may want to post the TVFR for the 60' tower location.

GroundUrMast,

Thanks for the advice and guidance, it is greatly appreciated! I will start looking for the antenna - I have included below my 60' tower TVFR for your consult around US stations:
