Mine is like the one at the bottom of that page. We get 60+ channels out of DFW.

we weren't getting very many channels with our indoor one. i bought a new outdoor RCA version at menards. It was around 60 bucks.. its like 4-5 ft wide by 6 ft or so long. looks kinda old school. Works great. we get around 25 channels now. before i think we got around 4-5.

I had the old fashioned outdoor antenna 25 years ago, and I could barely get one channel with a booster because I live in such a low-lying area. Are these modern antennas affected by that as well?

Yes. If you do not have clear line of sight to the tower, your reception will not be as good.
