Yep, those are the digital ones. It's kind of stupid how they list it as 17.1 (virtual channel) in the list but 19 (real channel) on the map, but whatever.
You can try a bidirectional antenna like the Winegard one but I don't know how much good it will do you in our area. All of the channels we're interested in are to the north, either up by Gun Lake, or in the GR area. I think it would make more sense for you to get a directional antenna with a pre-amp and point it north. That's what I use. (Mine is 30+ years old but it works well!)
If you've got the time, though, it would be an interesting experiement to see what you could pick up with that Winegard. Maybe you'd pick up some South Bend stations.
