This site will tell you the best direction to point an antenna for digital reception:

A ballpark figure for Shreveport/Bossier is to point it towards Oil City.
My antenna is pointed more towards Springhill. However, I don't receive channel 6. I get all of the other ones. I had tried several orientations when I first set it up and this seemed to be the best, but maybe I need to reevaluate it.

I've tried using one of these HD antenna that sits on a shelf in the living room.. it all integrates real well with the DirecTV equipment, including these new found channels in the guide etc.. But damn if I have much luck getting these channels well. I've discovered that some of them work well when it's freakin' raining out compared to a clear day. I thought I might would have good luck, considering where I am in North Shreveport. I guess I need a better roof top antenna ... ?

TGIFF !!
I purchased a "medium" gain antenna. The kind you might mount outdoors, but mine sits on top of my built in media cabinet-mostly out of sight. I just did it temporarily, to check the signals, but the wife didn't complain so there it sits. Interesting to note, I get better reception in the house than in the attic (my original desired mounting place). The shingles cut the signal dramatically.
