I currently have an HD antenna mounted on my roof but, it is not getting the stations I want. Here's my scenario: the antenna is on the roof-top of a 3 story building, there are no taller structures in the vicinity. I have placed an amplifier (Radio Shack) at the antenna and at the TV. The station I want to pick up is 58 miles away, it is a UHF band and the HD antenna station guide labels it as a purple station (needing long range antenna and amplifier). With my current set-up, I cannot pick up the station at all.
I live in Florida, everything is flat and line-of-sight between the antenna and the tower (especially since it's on the top of a 3 story building). I'm sure I need a new antenna and better amplifier, just looking for the right one. One other wrinkle, the current station I want is 58 miles due south but, I'd also like to pick-up stations that are due north. I do not care about east or west. Is there a bi-directional antenna.
Thank you for your time!
