I'd leave the antenna alone - you will use it for locals at some point in future. Being a Dish Network customer at home, I went with Winguard Pathway X1 which can feed signal to 2 receivers (rig has exterior connection each for bedroom and living room). Just added the receivers to my existing account, $7 a month for each. Lots of portable options out there, some exclusive to Dish or Direct TV, some can support either.
And I did recently have to move it clear of trees to get signal, worked great. Would advise getting chain and lock to secure it so it doesn't wander off!
