      Ummm... You only need tall antennas if your area(Home) isn't very high!

      If the home is on top of a mountain. You only need to put the antenna on 1 foot poll above the house or use something else. Plus using a short cable to the antenna. :-)

      Talking about antenna heights doesn't really mean anything. You need to talk about the whole area with it.

      If I put either the Scantenna or a VHF Ringo Ranger up 65 to 70 feet, I
      almost guarantee I will have reception on all 7 weather channels. I've
      got 5 of them just 5 feet above my roofline.

      But, I understand you have had good luck with Discones. I have not.
