Advice on proper antenna to chose
Hi, I have decided to get rid of cable and am in the process if deciding what antenna to purchase. I'd really like your comments on what antenna would be the best for my situration. My location is Southern NH, about 40 miles from Boston and the station transmitting towers. I attached a report of the stations available and they all come from the same area so a directional antenna seems the first choice. The photo shows a view of the direction the signals will be coming from. The large tree in the foreground is coming down but probably not until Spring. I ran the report for an antenna 30' above the ground and for 6' above ground and they pretty much came out the same for station aailability. But, I know they do not take into account the surrounding trees. So, I decided on an outdoor antenna because of the trees. The cable run would be about 60' from Antenna to the TV.
I was looking at the RCA ANT751 but that seem sto be right on the edge of the distance I need. Because of the trees I am thinking I should look for an antenna that has a reception range greater than 40 miles. Do you think that is necessary?
Any suggeestions on some antennas to look at? Aesthetics is not really a problem but I'd prefer not to put something up that looks like I am part of the SETI program.
Thanks for any advice.
