A zip-code level TVFool plot is usually useful only if you're out the the middle of the Plains or there isn't a hill or mountain anywhere nearby.

No, it isn't that simple.
The dish needs to be mounted in a spot where if an antenna is swapped in, the antenna can "see" the broadcast towers. In your case. the dish is aimed at the sky to your south east. An antenna needs to be aimed at the peak of Mt Wilson to your north. If the current mount location is such that an antenna would aim point blank into your own roof, your neighbor's roof, or the largest tree on the street, then the mounting location is a poor choose.
ALL MULTI-SWITCHES MUST BE REMOVED
! You must replace them with appropriate splitters. Multi-switches don't pass TV signals properly in an OTA-only system.
Your actual signal powers are far, far less than suggested by the TVFool plot. The transmitting antennas are about a mile higher than your elevation and the TVFool plotting software does not factor in the vertical pattern of the transmitting antennas. Those signals are only that "hot" in the main lobe of the transmitter antennas.
A small, 7-51 or 7-69 combo antenna should work fine. Candidates include the CM2016, HBU-11, ANT-751, C2V, or similar. Mount the antenna so it can "see" Mt Wilson and aim it at the peak.
