I haven't looked in awhile, but Radio Shack used to have a pretty good selection in their catalogue.

IME, more money does buy more elements, and that is supposed to lead to better reception. But reception is a funny thing. Years ago, while putting up an antenna on the house, my father-in-law suggested we check the signal strength at several spots. Fifteen feet sometimes made a pretty big difference between watchable, and un-watchable.

Heigth makes a difference, also. And while I don't know why, higher may not always be better.

Bottom line - buy a good antennae, mount it where it picks up best, and don't forget to run a line for your radio (I enjoy AM Talkradio at night).

Good luck!
