OK guys, I am obviously new at the OTA thing and I need to get my locals in HD. The only way for me to do this at my home is OTA. I need to figure out which antenna is best for my situation.

I live around 48 miles from the local stations that I want to view in HD. When I go to AntennaWeb it shows the following: SEE ATTACHED

I am only concerned with getting the "Big 4" CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC. 3 of the ones I want to get are covered with the yellow UHF which would be fine to use the Winegard SS-2000 Winegard Direct.com - Winegard SS 2000 SquareShooter UHF Only Amplified Digital/Analog/HDTV Antenna (SS-2000) | Winegard [SS-2000] square shooter SS1000 Winegard Square SQS S1000 SS2000 S2000 amplified squareshooter but the NBC station requires the red uhf which according to the Winegard website, says I will need the HD7084P..Winegard Direct.com - Winegard HD 7084P High Defintion VHF/UHF/FM Antenna (HD7084P) | Winegard [HD-7084P] HD7084P HD 7084P HD7084 HD 7084 HD-7084P

Should I just make it simple and purchase the HD7084P or should I go with something dirrent all together?? Thanks in advacne for your helps guys!!

Stay away from the over priced SS you would be better of with the 4400, 8800 or go with CM 4228

With the exception of that PBS station---and perhaps the independent in Danville---- the CM 4228 would work well.

The 4228 is great UHF although it has a limited bandwidth---and a decent hi VHF as well. But the stations you care about are grouped together and are UHF.

I live 40 miles south of Ricmond VA and use a CM4228. Excellent picture, I don't think you can buy a better antenna
