I'm getting ready to cut Directv and go with an OTA antenna but I'm not sure which one to get. This is completely new territory for me so any recommendations would be appreciated.

Here's my TV Fool report: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d46ae21ef28b045

I would post your TVFool results in the Local HDTV forum that is closest to where you live. That way, folks in your area can recommend what they use.

I'm on Dish network and use a Silver Sensor to pick up digital sub channels of local stations not carried by Dish. Several of my local stations broadcast their digital signals in VHF which the Silver Sensor doesn't pickup. Can someone recommend an indoor antenna that will pick up both UHF & VHF signals ? Anyone have opinions on the Leaf indoor HDTV antenna? I'm about 15 mi from the broadcast towers.

The Terk HDTVi and HDTVa add rabbit ears to that UHF Silver Sensor design, which will receive VHF. The HDTVa is the amplified version.

Please include a location in the title of ALL antenna help threads. See my edit.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
