I am looking to build a antenna that can catch signals from many directions with great beam width and high gain, also don't need VHF, just specifically for channels 14-51.

Those are pretty much mutually exclusive. High gain antennas generally have narrower beamwidths. Basically its like squeezing a half filled balloon, to get more distance from the center, the balloon becomes narrower.

I think a good compromise is a simple reflectorless DBGH, its bi-directional with very decent beamwidth and gain in both directions. If you need four main points, then build two with separate coax downleads into an A-B switch at the TV.

Whoops, heh. Yeah, but I didnt find astupidoldman's model in those two threads. I do recall it though. Maybe a quad thread ?
