We need your zip code. 40 miles over flat terrain is very different from 40 miles over hills....

Most OTA antenna will go at least 50 miles.
You will need at least a UHF antenna, VHF if you like, you can still get the analog channels with it for a few years anyway.

Are you looking at an OUTDOOR or Indoor antenna ?
Indoor probably won't work real well overall.

Outdoor, check the Channel master antenna's you can get them at various places.
Lowes carries them as well as antenna shops.
Radio Shack also handles OTA antennas.
I use the large one, it's $100 plus I have a rotor as well to turn the antenna when I want to see another city.
The one I mentioned goes 160 miles on VHF and 100 UHF.

Go to www.antennaweb.org for all the info you need. It is not a sales site!
