Help choosing antenna

Trying to cut the cord and need some help picking the right antenna. I have a DirecTV dish mounted on the roof and would like to replace it with an antenna. I think by what little I can understand from my location report that I will need a multi directional antenna, however I have no clue what one I should buy that will work well and fit into the mounting bracket. My link is: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...46ae21de24dbfa

Any help would be appreciated
