I'm still curious as to why you would even need the tower? If you get DirecTV, they provide your locals for you without the need of an over-the-air antenna.
I live in the middle of no-where, but I am about 75 miles sight line to Chicago, and 65 to South Bend. I'm a huge football guy, and I have 3 TV's in my sports room. What I don't want to pay for are extra receivers for usage on Saturday's during the fall. So when I moved into my new house, I hooked up an antenna and point it towards chicago, and hooked up an antenna and pointed it towards south bend. I ran the antenna to every room in my house. Now on Saturdays when I watch football, I can tune those TV's into my xbox for ESPN 3, or my antenna, and I only have to have one Satellite receiver to the 3 TV's. So if there are multiple games on the OTA channels (CBS, Fox, NBC and ABC) which there usually are, I can tune my xbox or DirecTV receiver to ESPN, and pick up the OTA games on the antennas. That also allows me to have some TV feeds sent to my guest rooms when I have family in from town.
I also have it run to my garage. So for me, I get a ton of use out of my antenna, even with DirecTV providing me my locals.
