You need a VHF/UHF antenna. You are close to the towers, you should not need anything big. You could maybe get away with an indoor antenna like this:

The antenna should be facing primarily South. Most of your channels are to the SW, but ABC is the oddball to the SE. So if you split the difference and point South, you should be ok.

If you have problems with reception, you can try to install the indoor antenna in a high spot like in the attic. Otherwise try an outdoor antenna like the HBU-22 in the attic or outside.
