Those flat indoor antenna usually do not give good results. Not to mention you are 30 miles away from the towers which might be pushing any indoor antenna to the limit.
Your towers are to the NW of you, so as a test, try pointing the antenna out of a NW facing window, as high as you can go. If it still does not yield good results, you probably need a more conventional antenna like the Antennacraft HBU-22 from Radio Shack, and put it outside or if you have an attic you can try in there.
