I'm currently looking at these from Digiwave:

http://www.digiwavetechnologies.com/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=457
http://www.digiwavetechnologies.com/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=280
http://www.digiwavetechnologies.com/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=401

In approximately that order of priority.  Unfortunately Digiwave seems unable 
to supply me with proper graphs showing the antenna sensitivity, which is why 
I'd be more likely to go with someone else, likely the CM4228 or Winegard 
HD9095P.  The Winegard antenna has higher gain than the CM, but poorer 
multipath reception, although I am not so concerned about multipath for my 
particular need (fixed mount, single-target 70 miles away).

There's also an Italian antenna design that the Digiwave ANT-2110 is a 100% 
clone of, but I'm a little more concerned with the 2110 and its multipath 
reception.  It's all guesswork and "touchy feely" opinion at this point.
