Need FM Antenna Info

Not many outdoor FM antennas on the market these days. I want something that has good to excellent rejection of signals off the side and back. A unidirectional antenna is required for picking up a signal on a channel that has a co channel in the opposite direction.

Any recommendations? The Antennacraft FM6 gets pretty good reviews but I don't know if it has a good front to back ratio. And the same goes for the Winegard 6055.

The Winegard HD6055P is advertised to have 7.0 to 8.6 dB forward gain and 18 to 20 dB F/B.

The Antennacraft FM6 specs are less specific, simply claiming forward gain of 6.6 dB and 18.9 dB F/B.

Then there's the Wade C & J Series.

I wonder if something like this might work:

The low-VHF elements are angled towards the front, which could maybe help guard against co-channel interference? I haven't tried any antenna like this in the past so I'm not sure how well it would work in your case.

Hope this helps.
