Default Shopping for a TV antenna

Does anyone have a recommendation for an antenna product (or style or brand) that will be connected to a TV to receive the various Oahu stations?

I live really kind of close to KHON and KITV's broadcast antenna but I have no idea on KGMB, KHNL and KVFE are but I suspect they might be in the 20 to 50 mile range from KHON and KITV.

I am not ditching my Spectrum service but rather I want to get a 2nd TV and have that unit use the over the air stations.

It does as far where Oahu's TV broadcast antennas are located.

However the site sort of deals with outdoor antennas as opposed to dealing with indoor antennas.

Picked up a Philips HD Crystal Amplified Antenna from Target on Friday (11/22/19) night. The box says it has a 50 mile range and cost about $28.

It has an A/C power adapter and 6 foot coax cable to connect it to the TV.

Initially I was able to get 16 channels but after a couple of days redoing the channel scanning I am at 14 channels which are currently KHON, KITV, KWHE and KBFD.

Anyway here is a link to the product which goes to YouTube.
