TO get all the channels you need a LOOOONG antenna with a rotor about 30 feet above any objects like your car that move around because it reflects or bounces the signal. A "booster" won't help much unless it is on that goes on the antenna and plugs into the house for power. Needs to be adjustable.

I have the one that is listed as "Top Seller" in the above post. When I ordered it I actually thought I was throwing money away but it is surprisingly good. Built in rotor and booster. I get 19 local channels with it. And before anyone asks, I do not live on a mountain top, actually in a valley.

CORRECTION ON LAST POST! I have the one marked strongest range, and I found it online for $29.95 on ebay.

Glad that it works for you but I would bet that a longer antenna with way more elements would bring in twice the channels if mounted with a rotor at ~33feet above the ground and yep you'd spend $200 plus your labor for the, antenna, amp, rotor, coax, pipe. You would get, several market stations not on DISH or cable, from Cincinnati Lexington and maybe Huntington / Portsmouth. On certain evenings or twilight & mornings you might scan in Dayton or other channels from Louisville.
