I live not too far North of you on Ridgeview Dr, although I suspect the elevation is a bit higher.

I can get CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, and FOX all with a Mohu Leaf Ultimate mounted on my south facing upstairs wall.

I've attached the numbers at 30ft.

I tried out an Antennas Direct ClearStream 4V. I aimed the antenna using the compass on my phone. So no, I didn't use a compass. In the short distance, the neighbor's house sits a lot higher than ours. And all the houses up the hill we're on. Besides that, no major obstructions that I can think of.

There's your problem. With UHF, anything obstructing your signal path will cause significant loss in signal level. The noise margins (the important number) and power levels on Rochester stations jump like 20db going from 10ft to 30ft. Which makes KIMT and even KYIN doable. Getting up into a second story attic or onto the roof would certainly do it.

Phone compass is good enough.
