I like the DB8e more compact than the Antennacraft Y10713.
Those two antennas are NOT interchangeable. The Y10713 is for the VHF channel attempt for channel 13. The DB8e that was suggested is for everything else.

My recommendation is to forgo Seattle (unless you're very motivated and very patient). In the case of locals only, go with a DB4e with the reflector panels removed (drill out the rivets).

No preamp is needed.

Reception of the Seattle stations would never be reliable year round, even with "extreme measures". You'll get some of the stations some of the time, though, when the atmospheric propagation across the Sound is enhanced. It's up to you to decide if the extreme effort is worth pursuing.
