I installed one antenna in the Tampa Bay area, and it was 30 years ago for my grandparents who lived in St. Petersburg Beach, right on the water. 30 years ago, there was no cable Tv there, and my aged grandmother was frustrated at not being able to see her soap operas clearly on their new RCA XL 100 TV! I used a simple broadband uhf-vhf antenna for most of the stations, and a separate antenna for channel 10, a five element yagi, if I remember correctly: They all marveled how terrific their picture was, and I was amazed how easy it was to get a picture in that area: all you needed was a decent antenna! There are probably a lot more stations on the air in Tampa-St. Pete than there were in 1973, but the principle hasn't changed: If you want good reception, you need the right antenna system for the job. You have received a lot of good advice from people here: for Pete's sake, listen to it! It wasn't created in a vacuum! Forget about omni-directional antennas: they are worthless! Get a broadband UHF-VHF antenna, like a Channel Master 3679, a Winegard HD7082P, or a Wade-Dehhi VU933SR with the powerzoom, aim it at your 174-177 degree stations, and use a UHF yagi antenna like a Channel Master 4248 or a Winegard HD9085 for the one station you are looking for at 250 degrees, and use a Join-Tenna to connect the two. Voila, everything clear and simple. If you have a WAF issue, remember that it is much easier to ask forgiveness than it is to ask permission! You will be rewarded with glorious, free HDTV! and your wife will peobably be placated by candy, flowers, or a nice evening out. Don't overthink this one: it really isn't that hard!
