Here is my TV Fool report: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...0b862680c54286
Would the above linked antenna be sufficient for my needs?
You didn't mention any specific antenna, but based on your TV Fool, as long as WLMB isn't important to you, then all you need is a VHF-Hi/UHF antenna (7-51). If religious station WLMB is important, then you need an all channel VHF/UHF antenna (2-51), as they're on RF 5. WTOL (CBS) is on RF 11 & WTVG (ABC) is on RF 13, & both VHF-Hi.
For antennas, either an Antennacraft HBU22 or HBU33, or Winegard HD7694p or HD7695p (while supplies last as it's discontinued) for a combo antenna if you just need VHF-Hi & UHF.
If you need an all channel VHF/UHF antenna, then the Antennacraft 5884 or C290 would work fine.
I did notice you have PBS station WBGU broadcasting SW of you. If that's important, then you either need a rotator, or a separate UHF only antenna pointed at 226°, while the combo antenna is pointed north at around 350° - about 7°. Also, under no circumstances do you amplify anything above WBGU, as those stations are under 15 miles from you. If you go with 2 separate antennas, then you can get the Winegard CC7870 coupler, & join both antennas into that. The Winegard CC7870 coupler is what I own, & have no problems joining multiple antennas in strong signal areas.
As long as you're just interested in just the Toledo stations, then my recommendations are all you need.
