The Omni directional antennas do not work as well as conventional antennas in my opinion.
That being said, post your tvfool results so we can get a better idea of reception where you are. Usually when dealing with amps and splitters, I like to first run 1 short cable directly from the antenna to a tv ( no amp, no splitters) and see what channels I get. This would be my reference. If I am having trouble receiving channels, I adjust the antenna, and if that does not work, then I add an amp.
Once I have established which channels I am receciving, then I start to add splitters. And if I notice that I am losing channels, then I add an amp ( if I had not done so already above).
