Do I need a special antenna to receive 1080i programming?

No, the antenna does not control if you receive 1080i, 720p, or any other resolution.  This is a function of the TV set or converter box, not the antenna.  The antenna will receive the format that the broadcaster used to transmit the signal through your antenna system, and then send that signal to the TV set DVR, or converter box, which can then be used to change the resolution of the received signal if desired.

Please see the diagrams link attached below to help you understand how to connect a preamp in your antenna system.
