I use that same antenna, with a rotor. The rotor is really the key, get a Channel Master rotor!!!!! Also, in my case, my roof line was blocking the angenna some, so we put on a longer pole so the antenna is just above my high roof line.
I have a friend, Gerry Behm, who redid my antenna to shore it up, raise it up, and rotor. He lives right by you. As a custom installer, he does this for a living. If you're willing to pay, you could contact him to get your antenna setup to work!!!! If interested, e-mail me for his e-mail. But I must emphasize that CLEARANCE and ROTOR are a must!!!!
I have tried amplifiers and they aren't needed here. They actually worsen signal reception, once you have a rotor to maximize reception.
