Antenna Advice

I would appreciate some help with antenna selection.

I am in center Alabama and plan to put the antenna on the roof approx. 20 foot off the ground. I plan on just two tvs and would like to configure for the best direction for the most/clearest channel although I do like the FOX station. If I could get FM radio stations that would be a bonus.

here is my radar report

Thanks in advance

The tvfool radar report and channel list is not working. Please try again.

Use your correct address to make the report.

Make the antenna height in the tvfool radar report 25 feet above ground.

The 25 feet above ground is a reference antenna height that provides a good idea of what is available to receive.
