Need some help.

Hello all,

I'm looking for some help getting my local stations OTA. I have Directv and want to get some of my local channels that they don't carry. My TV is a Samsung LN52B750U1FXZA. What antenna would I need? I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this stuff so if anyone could provide me with any information I would really appreciate it. Here are a few specs and my TVFool report.
TV Tuner: 1x analog, 1x digital
Digital TV Tuner: ATSC, QAM
Analog TV Tuner: NTSC

Thanks!

I believe you have hilly terrain in that region, which may be a concern. Especially if you want reception from Pittsburgh as well as Morgantown. And it looks like you have both Low and High VHF, as well as UHF. So you may need a larger style all band antenna, such as Winegard 8200 or Channel Master 3020.

The only channels I really want to get are 5 and 12. What other information do you need? Sorry I'm new to all of this.

Thanks

These are both VHF and channel five is low-VHF. As mentioned by another poster, Channel Master and Winegard still make antennas with low-VHF capability.
