little help from Alabama

Hey everyone im looking to get the most out of whatever antenna i purchase next ...i had one of those cheap 150 mile rotating antennas mounted about 15ft up and it gave me about 5 or 6 channels but it took a turn for the worst and bit the dust the other day ...i was looking at this one with a amp but all the stuff i have read on antennas over the past couple of days just has me scratching my head...

Your link to our website does not direct to a specific product, it goes to a page that shows everything.

What stations are you most interested in receiving?

No, you're going to need a lot more "horsepower" unless you happen to live on top of a hill with completely open lines of sight in all of the required directions.

If you wish to send me your precise GPS coordinates of your rooftop by private message, I'll take a closer look.

It would really help if you can more precisely define what stations you really want to put effort into receiving. The wish for "everything possible" usually boils down to the largest antenna you can manage, a preamplifier, and a heavy duty rotor with no level of certainty as to what actually might happen once installed.
