Maybe there's multipath interference on WXPX? You might need to try different locations (both elevation and floorplan) for the antenna.
If you have a tuner that can display both signal strength and signal quality, then locating/aiming the antenna would be a bit easier. (Multipath would show as a strong but low-quality signal.)
BTW my attic-mounted antennae can receive all the green-colored channels of my tvfool
chart, which includes a station 36 miles away with a power level of -60dBm (whereas your WXPX is at -40dBm). I do use distribution amps to split the signals.
I'm only running the signal through a single 50' line of coax?
Depends on the quality of the coax cable (premium coax is Belden 1694A
which I was able to get a while back at 56 cents per foot), and if it has been properly handled (no kinks, no sharp bends, no hard pulling, proper staples).
BTW WXPX is at a much higher broadcast frequency than WEDU (638MHz versus 210MHz), and the coax loss could be almost double. So even though the predicted signal strength are similar (at the antenna), the tuner will receive different power levels.
