1) What band are the local DTV stations on, in your area? Most DTV stations are on UHF, but there are exceptions to this. http://www.titantv.com/ will assist you, it has a list of local DTV stations and what band they are on.
2) How far are you from the stations? Typcially, DTV and analog TV reception is limited to 50-60 miles. In the longer distances, an outdoor antenna will produce more reliable reception. If your closer to the stations (<20 miles) you may be able to use an indoor antenna. The Antenna Web site above will help with a recommendation, but in all cases you won't know for sure what will work for you, until you try it.
Indoor antenna position may need to be adjusted as you try to get different stations, they are not noted for good analog reception. Outdoor antennas can improve your local analog reception while also providing better DTV reception.
