Money wise and lift time cost to install the antenna, would I be better off just going with the HD7698P up front?


If it is going to cost you lift time, I would definitely go with the biggest antenna possible. With the HD7698P recommended by Rabbit73 aimed towards Terre Haute you have a good chance of receiving WTWO (NBC), WAWV (ABC) and WTHI (CBS/FOX/CW). You have some hills about 10 miles from you interfering a bit with the signal. Also as Rabbit73 mentioned, your local PBS station WUSI is strong enough that you might receive it off the side of your antenna.

WFIE in Evansville is off in another direction, weaker and far enough away that the curvature of the earth begins to interfere with reception. You can get your NBC programming from WTWO.
