What type of antenna and preamp? The best choice as mentioned would be an Antennas Direct 91XG for UHF and an Antennacraft Y10713 for VHF. Or, if you choose a combo antenna, then a Winegard 7698 or Antennacraft HBU-55. As for preamps, the Kitztech 100 or 200 perform very well in fringe areas due to very low noise figure. The 200 is best if you have no other strong signals nearby. They do make a difference with weak or marginal signals.
