We got the passive Mohu Leaf 30 about 3 years ago. Works fine for our ground floor apartment. Occasionally weather seems to interfere a bit with some weaker channels, so I'll adjust the orientation. Sometimes I'll just lay it flat on the floor or a table near the window for tricky stations. Usually it just hangs in the window, between the blinds and the drapes.

The first Leaf antennas just looked like cheap diner place mats, something they'd serve food on at Denny's or IHOPs. Don't be fooled, though, they really work. It's all in the tech that goes inside that sheet of plastic.

Since we bought ours they've added larger and amplified antennas. Go for one of those, based on your description of your area.
Thx for the link, I'll look into it.
