You can't go wrong with the Winegard series of outdoor antennas
. If you only want coverage for VHF-Hi and UHF (RF channels 7 through 51) you could go with the HD769xx series (models HD7694P through HD7698P). If you want VHF-Lo, FM, VHF-Hi and UHF coverage (RF channels 2 through 51 including FM) choose either the HD7084P or HD8200U. On the Winegard site all of the antennas are coded by range/gain: Green (strong), Yellow (moderate) and Brown (weak). They also list approximate miles of reception for each antenna but YMMV depending on your actual conditions/location.
You should also consider putting a rotor on the antenna that you choose as you have stations in different directions. All of the Winegard antennas mentioned above are directional so a rotor would really help out your reception especially for the weakest stations.
Do yourself a favor and check the prices on www.amazon.com
before you make your purchase. I have found those two websites to have some of the lowest prices on antennas even when you factor in the shipping charges (if any) to your home.Edited by trp2525 - 7/3/13 at 12:20pm
