I'm searching for an antenna that will allow me to pick up CBS, NBC, ABC & FOX. I have a ClearStream1 Convertible, but as of right now I can only pick up KET. Three different KET's to be honest. I'm looking for a way to pick up the Olympics this summer and NFL this fall.

Welcome to the forum.

Your tvfool report doesn't look very hopeful. Please try it again using your exact coordinates, for a more accurate report with your difficult terrain. Your report puts you near the intersection of Johnson Rd and 519.

What you are receiving is WKMR:

I tried an approximate report for your area and I needed to put your antenna up 300 ft for LOS signals:

I don't think it's just a matter of a better antenna, but getting it up much higher to receive what you want.

You are going to need something at least like an Antennas Direct DB4e or better yet a 91XG aimed at 265 degrees. You will also need a preamp. Even this setup might not be enough; no guarantees.

If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
