I live in Rochester, MN and can get 2,3,4,5,6,9,10,15,23,29,47 and 48. I may have some incorrect stations in the above list buy you can see it is pretty big, maybe 35 channels and sub channels.
All of these stations are UHF except for 10 which is actual 10.
I have a tripod on the roof with a rotor. The cables go through the roof directly under the antenna and the amplifiers are just inside the house. None of that crap of running the cables over the roof and down the side of the house. I have a distribution amp and five drops in various rooms.
I used to have a DB8 antenna and it was very good but I changed to a UHF yagi for better directionality. Both work well. Note that all channels are UHF so you do not need a big antenna like in Mikepier's postage size picture. The big elements on an antenna are for VHF.
However for channel 10 I have a special VHF high antenna pointed directly at channel 10 and use a little gaget to combine the two antenna feeds.
The UHF antenna is both cheap and small.
