What manufacturers do you consider reputable?

There are a few of them. I recently bought an antenna from Channel Master and it does exactly what it says. It said it has a 45 mile range. I live 33 miles from most of the broadcasting towers and it gets them all with no problem.

The thing to be careful of is the fact that some stations are VHF and some antennas only do UHF. Channel Master shows the DB rating for the various frequencies.

Look at one of the places that shows which strength antenna you need and then select an antenna.
