This is my first post in the forum so I apologize if I don't know all the rules. I have been reading posts from many people about different antennas and I seem to be at a loss and need some help. The back story is I came from a family that always had cable or satellite and when my wife and I moved into our new home we had cable hooked up to it. Being that we're young and dirt poor (who isn't anymore) I want to cancel our cable and just go OTA. That be said I have been reading up and used antennasweb and TVfool and found that the stations we want are all UHF and all at about exactly 30 miles. I have a two-fold problem. 1. Of the 9 or so stations that will come in great according to the websites and are about 30 miles out 2 are directly 180 degrees from the other 7. The problem is 1 of those two is NBC and my wife will kill me if we don't get that station, I of course don't want to miss out on the other 7. So, is there a good Omnidirectional antenna for this situation. I have been looking at the DB4 or Clearstream4, but most reports on here and other sites seem to be suggesting they are more directional that the manufacturer is letting on and would not serve my purpose. I have no problem mounting the antenna on my roof if that is what is required. 2. I am wondering if it is possible to connect the antenna to a preamp and then connect the coax to the splitter already installed in the house and send signals to the different rooms just like cable so I don't have to run a direct line from the antenna to only one TV in the house. As you can tell I'm really new at this and have read all the primers and guides and now I'm looking for an antenna suggestion and a thought on the second problem before I buy and get rid of my cable. Thanks for the thoughts.
