Default HDTV Antenna

Anybody got any advice? I live in Barrineau Park and want to get an antenna but am kind of in the dark about them. I've read a little and looked up some stuff , but thought advice from someone that has one would be better. I was wondering which models you might have and which seem to work best......any recommendations would be helpful. I want to go with an outdoor, but indoor info would be good too. I haven't ruled indoor out just yet. I thought that living that far out an outdoor would be best. Thanks
If anybody is interested this website is pretty cool if you've thought about ditching cable and going with an antenna

I have just a regular outdoor antennae in the middle of nowhere at my club in Al. and pick up 10-15 channels. The key to making it work was to get a low resistance coax and a signal booster. I would think where you are, you could pick up a lot of free TV. The only channels I would miss would be the Outdoor and ESPN's.

I live off of Gulf Beach Highway behind NAS Pensacola and used a simple indoor antenna for awhile and it worked pretty good except I could not pick up fox since it was VHF and my antenna only picked up UHF channels. I think I got around 30 channels but most of them are spanish speaking or weather channels. I went and got a big outdoor antenna with a signal amplifier and now I get great reception with a few more channels and am finally able to pick up fox. Check out this website too. It is pretty good when you put in your address it shows about the same things as antennaweb.org but it shows the signal strength for each channel at your house. I could of gotten away without the amp but since its a pretty far run from the antenna and I have two tvs and two computers hooked up I needed that extra boost.
