hello, try a Channel Master Probe 9 roof mount antenna with a rotor...

On my MR71, I use the 300 ohm connection, hooked up to the rooftop TV aerial....yeah, I still have one! I don't get any 10s since I don't have it optimally postioned, but near 10's on the stations I listen to. Sound fine to me-quiet and noise free.
Location is the key. I can get a strong 8/9 with a $2.00 dipole on some stations.
My Mac has been seeing double overtime lately.
Those Channel Master Probe 9's are not easy to find. But now I'm also in the market for a TV antenna.
I did some research and in Dallas they built all the main TV and FM radio towers in the same place. A candelabra which is 45 miles away, and on the biggest hill in the area.
So does this mean I need 2 antennas? And since they are all in the same place, I guess I don't need a rotor?
For good clean FM reception you need a directional yagi type. A TV antenna is not the best choice so you will need 2 antennas. They stopped making FM only antennas years ago. This Stellar labs is the only one that I could find !
You will need 2 antennae. For digital TV most stations are now UHF. FM is in the middle of the old VHF band. Go to antennaweb.org to get info on the TV antenna for your address and you can see if you need a rotor.For FM at 45 miles you may not need an expensive FM antenna (the S antenna may be enough, but the 4 element is better), but if you get one you may need a rotor. I recommend coax for better weather ageing and lower noise interference. Be sure the installer pays attention to proper grounding.
