Hello,

I am looking for an antenna to supplement my Dish service. I have no knowledge of antennas and after reading over numerous posts here I am still left wondering what to purchase. If anyone could kindly recommend which antenna to get it would be greatly appreciated. I am really only looking to get the "yellow" section of channels but if anything in addition would be welcomed. I plan on roof mounting the antenna. Is there anything out there for ~$50?

Thanks in advance,
Sean

Fixed link. Thanks BCF68

I wouldn't get anything less than the Winegard 7694 with those signal strengths given that price range. The CM 2016 doesn't even come close in comparison.

srj,
You don't need to post your antenna questions in multiple threads. Antennas suitable for your TVFool results were posted in the Official AVS antenna topic thread.

My apologies. I just wanted to see if this thread (since it was more visible) would get more responses or different recommendations then my other my question in the antenna thread. I will go with the winegard. Thanks everyone who responded.

I use the Winegard 7015 UHF/VHF antenna available at solidsignal.com for $37.99. A pretty good antenna for a good price. Its VHF is outstanding and its UHF is pretty good.
