RE: Best longer range digital antenna?

Old analog antenna's work just fine. "Digital" is more of a marketing
scheme (i.e..."digital ready" speakers) to sell new antenna's. There are some minor band changes,
but not enough to make a big difference.

You will need a large one if you're in a fringe area, and sharing
the signal with a few TV's. You can "fish" the large elements
through the roof truss members, that's what I did. Use good pure copper
center wire RG6 cable.

The yagi type antenna is best for gain, but directional, and rotating
in an attic is a problem. If most signals derive from one direction,
it'll work.
