Do you know of a good outdoor antenna brand that gives a more wider range area to signal our favorite channels?

Hello! We're looking for a good outdoor antenna to hook up. We bought one on Amazon, a "Will brand 150 mile range-amplified digital outdoor antenna TV". It was good, but the problem was of how narrow it was. A couple channels we love is in the "10+ companies" (see image) and the other couple of channels we love in in the "5 companies". We were playing with trying to get it in the sweet spot to see all the channels, but was just too narrow. We're looking for an antenna company that'd provide more of a wide range to see the channels we love

    You will probably just need multiple antennas mounted at different angles to get all the stations. In more extreme situations you will need to buy a small tower to get high enough. They also have antenna rotators you can program at different angles and set it appropriately for the channel you are on. It's a hassle for sure but it is what it is if you don't want to pay for satellite.

    Unfortunately, the more "gain" an antenna has,

    the narrower its angle of reception will be.

    This is an unavoidable fact.

    So, what is better, having to add a rotator, or losing signal strength?

    I would go for the rotator.

    And ---

    NO antenna can receive TV signals from 150 miles under normal conditions.


    Any such claim is pure B.S.

    The practical limit is about 70 miles,

    and that is over flat and absolutely clear terrain.

    Any trees, buildings, hills, or other obstructions

    will reduce the distance over which usable reception can occur.
