[ http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Stations.aspx ] has been my best find so far.  It seems that I could be well covered by yellow and blue antennas.  Unfortunately, I live in an association, and while they cannot legally bar me from erecting an antenna, I would prefer not to incur unnecessary grief.  Can anyone speak to the existence of low profile, innocuous or camoflaged blue antennas?  Or direct me to a resource?

Make sure none of your stations are going to move to the channel 7-13
range after February.  If you do have a station in the 7-13 range, you
will need a larger "Hi-VHF/UHF" antenna.  If all of your stations are
in the channel 14-60 range, then you can get away with a UHF-only

Since I do have two stations moving to the 7-13 channel range, I just
bought this:


It is the smallest "high performance" antenna I could find, that was
Hi-VHF/UHF.  So far, it is working well.
