Advice wanted for antenna in Pomona, CA

I am helping a friend set up an Antenna for OTA reception of HD. She has a base for a satelitte dish on her roof. It is a tripod support with a center shaft. I am thinking an antenna can be set in that shaft or attached to it. Here is the link to the tvfool analysis of the address:

Your help is appreciated. And again have a great Christmas and New Years.

An RCA ANT-751 pointing at about 290 compass will 'get' everything in the green section of the report except for KSMV due to co-channel interference from KVMD.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)

Tv Reception with Tv antennas

This suggestion is based on the tvfool report for , Pending Applications Included , Only Digital report. Digital tv transmissions being transmitted from different points around the compass , are LOS = Line Of Sight ( the best kind of tv reception) and are strong transmissions. Install a Winegard MS1000 antenna above the roof. Here are some antenna mounts , , , Here are places to buy antennas and etc. , , ,

The MS1000 is an omnidirectional antenna. Given that 98% of the useful signals are in one direction, I don't understand this recommendation. We normally recommend antennas of modest directionality like the ANT-751 in order to prevent multipath problems.
