Cool Best Aerial Antenna

Hello,
I am purchasing a home in Hemmingway. I will want to start out with the minimum for infotainment at the house. Probably just the lowest cost internet (at a reasonable speed - only will use one or two devices at a time). YouTube TV, and will want a great antenna to get the most local stations (Ocala, Orlando, Tampa).

I think that I read where someone had a good antenna from a supplier in Michigan, but now I cannot find the reference.

Can someone help?

Thank you.

Sincerely
Paul Hellebuyck

Check out Antenna Man - Cut The Cord He has a YouTube channel with a lot of great advice (especially about the cheap antenna above).

Or you could probably use 1 antenna with a cheap rotator. Would save lots of room. You might need a multiband antenna not sure what freq all those local channels use.

This antenna in our attic peak pulls all channels(aimed towards Orlando) including WESH which is a VHF holdout.We are in Bison Valley.

as mentioned, if you have youtubetv , you won't need an antenna.
If you like your antenna, then there's no reason to get youtubetv
youtube does have a lot of non-local stations

Make sure you don't have radiant barrier in your attic. If you do the antenna won't work.

Mount it as high as possible in the attic. Every foot helps.

Aim it at 115 degrees. You can install a compass app on your phone.

Install the amplifier as close to the antenna as possible, as opposed to close to the TV.

I get Channel 2 clearly and live near Savannah Center but my attic is taller than most.
