The majority of channels are really just coming from one direction (about 129 degrees compass heading). I would just point a high-VHF/UHF combo antenna (like the Antennacraft HBU22 or Winegard HD7694P) in that direction and see what you get.

If there are specific channels outside of that cluster that your brother needs/wants, then we can look into methods of fetching a few stray channels.

I like the Winegard HD-1080 for Tampa. It just so happens that the major lobe of the HD-1080 on VHF is backwards from the UHF main lobe. That would put CBS in a main lobe even though it's off the back of the antenna.

FOX and NBC are also on VHF and in the same directions as the UHF stations, but FOX/NBC are so strong the backwards VHF lobe shouldn't matter.
