We get acceptable analog reception with the antenna that we have. The digital reception is not good with some channels not coming in or programs being pixelated.

Do we need a new antenna and if so can you give me suggestions on what to buy? :confused::confused:

These are the channels we should get according to antennaweb.
Channels
A: 7, 7.1, 9.1, 9.1, 16, 16.1, 29
B: 40, 40.1
C: 49
D: 18, 38, 38.1
E: 18
F: 13, 21, 21.1, 33
G: 4, 4.1, 4.1, 62


I have attached the antenna map from antennaweb.

We live in a rural area with tall trees around our mobile home.

Any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks

First all of your channels are UHF except for 4, 7 9 this would mean that you would need a UHF and VHF antenna, the problem with combo antennas is the fact that the UHF side is always weak. so I suggest a UHF stacked over a VHF combined with a Channel Master titan 777 pre amp. How far are you from transmitters and what present antenna do you have?
here is what I recommend for deep fringe 60+ miles from transmitters.

how high is the antenna above your mobile home does the home have a metal roof if so you need as much height as possible. also what converter box or digital tv.:)
