Corner reflector antenna with Hi Band-VHF notice the extra "wings" in the back, that is the VHF portion. These are pretty rare around here. This is very directional and must be pointed very precisely to get a good signal.

This is a VHF/UHF "Yagi" antenna, which is the best type to get for any conditions. This will work for all types of TV.

This is highly directional and will not get a good signal if pointed the wrong way.
