As mentioned, the biggest and best combo antennas for High VHF and UHF are the Winegard 7698 and the Antennacraft HBU-55. In the large all band category, there is the Winegard 8200, Channel Master 3671 or 3020, and the Antennacraft 1850 or C490. But as said, you do not need Low VHF, so the large all band antenna is unnecessary. As for UHF, the best fringe antennas are the 91XG from Antennas Direct, Winegard 9095, Antennacraft MXU59, or possibly any of the DB8 versions. And there is also a triple boom yagi from MCM/Stellar Labs that is somewhat modeled after tthe Televes DAT75. But in your case, I would go with the 7698 Winegard, although at 50 miles even the 7696 or HBU-33 from Antennacraft should work. But I would probably choose Winegard because the build quality should better withstand winter weather conditions.

The older ones were never as low a noise figure as advertised.

Ugh. Think my "old style" 7777 has bitten the dust. Power making it up coax fine, but signals shot. Opened up preamp, and looks like a singe on the board.
