Default am/fm and TV antenna

looking for some suggestions for a AM/FM antenna and a TV antenna so I can listen to the radio without the static and the kiddo's can watch some OTA hi def channels.

Thanks,
Matt

Any antenna will work but the higher it's mounted the better for reception. A marine rated antenna will handle the elements better over time.

The little wire antenna's that come with the radios are poor.

I have this one and love it. The amp is wired to an aux switch at the helm. Coupled with a 12v tv, we love being able to watch tv even when not on gen or shore power.

1byone Amplified Marine Antenna with Omni-directional 360 Reception, 70 Miles Outdoor HDTV Antenna Boat Antenna with Stainless Steel Base, Suitable for Outdoor and Marine, Anti-UV Coating ,Compact https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010SP0TEI..._hlz3yb17T4DGX

I have not put in a splitter to break out fm (no, am does not come through these antennas despite what they say) because I have not had any issues with the existing fm antenna situation.
