The C4 is definitely the wrong antenna for your bottom-of-a-hole location with only VHF likely.

If you didn't get any UHF with the C4, I'd suggest getting the Antennacraft CS600 instead of the...

The tree grew. You'll either need to address it or you'll need to find a spot for the antenna which isn't compromised in order to solve the reception problem.

Forget BOTH the stacker and the amplifier, neither is appropriate. The stacker has the long low-VHF elements that are useless in your area, plus it's more directional than desirable.

Combining a UHF antenna and a VHF antenna is simple, there's a device specifically for that called the UVSJ.

Find out which signal you're getting for KCPQ, then we'll know what antenna to suggest.

You cannot and should not use an amp, the signals are already very strong in your area.
