I finally found an antenna that works for me. I got it for around $30, currently $40.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...00_i00_details
Paper Thin Leaf Indoor HDTV Antenna
I live only 4 miles from Pinnacle hill, but 590 or something blocks my first floor reception. I get reception with other antennas, but not reliably. I have it mounted at about 7 feet off the floor at the moment, up against the wall and get solid reception on my WMC tuners. It also functions as an fm antenna.
I can't say how well it would work for long distances, but it's a neat design.
