Any advice/feedback?

IF you go to TVfool.com and enter your address it will tell you how close you are the the OTA Towers and which direction from where you live. I am in Omaha and am just using a cheap indoor antenna from Amazon ($14) and am able to pull in all the major networks.

According to the rabbitears.info site, KSNB also operates a low-power UHF translator on RF18 in the Lincoln area.

I'm picking up all of them in NW Lincoln, so I'm further from the Omaha stations but closer to the Lincoln ones. With that said, I have an attic mount antenna. I don't think you'll get much with an indoor, except maybe 31.1 (8.1's UHF translator) and 51.1. If you get a decent VHF setup and point it west, you'll probably do pretty well on 10.1 and 10.2 (which is NBC now). If you point a UHF toward Omaha, you should be in great shape for NBC, ABC, CBS out of Omaha.

The only problems I found was 8.1 is a little dicey on some of my sets, but if I watch 31.1 (UHF) it works fine. You may have more trouble being a little further east, but 31.1 will be closer to you, so that'll make up for it. In addition, I couldn't reliably get 12.1 (VHF PBS) out of Mead reliably until I added a second VHF antenna pointed toward Omaha. Being further east this may not be as big of a problem for you

I don't think you'll have any problems...unless your roof is lined in tin-foil...
