TERK55 not recommended. I live 3.6 miles from the Mt. Sutro broadcast tower. I can look out of the window and see it towering above the city and imagine all of those excited electrons streaming by. With the $120 TERK, I could get 4 of the 7 DTV OTA channels, with a $25 Channel Master 3016, I get all of them. To be fair, I live in the city and suffer from multipath problems, but I was mighty unimpressed with the TERK55.
Provided you are within good reception range of the towers, you may want to try the Radio Shack set top double bowtie antenna first. If not good enough, try moving up to a medium size indoor/outdoor antenna. It is "small" enough to be hidden behind cabinets, in a closet, or in the attic.
If not then try the Silver Sensor set top antenna. I recommend trying out the Radio Shack units first due to ease and convenience of return if it doesn't work.
