Here is another scenario to consider. Get a Winegard YA 1713 High VHF antenna and point it at Jacksonville for PBS on RF7, ABC on 10 and NBC on channel 13. This is widely considered to be the best high band VHF antenna available and I can personally attest to the fact that it made a huge difference when I was in a difficult reception situation. If it will not pull in the VHF from Jacksonville, nothing within reason will. It would be about $40 from the same vendor mentioned above.
Add to that the Antennas Direct DB4e for UHF directed at your CBS affiliate on channel 28. That would also give you FOX on RF 31, slightly off target but you are LOS to it as well as a secondary ABC on channel 16 and possibly an alternate PBS on channel 36. The DB4e is $50.
Tie the two antennas together with a Pico Macom UVSJ for $10. The UHF/VHF joiner allows you to point the two different band antennas in different directions, something you can not do with two antennas designed for the same band and one can not simply use a two way splitter backwards. The whole project would cost just slightly less than the Winegard 7698 and would not require a rotor or turning the pole. It would also have the advantage of giving you news and weather from both Jacksonville and I would assume the more relevant Gainesville market. As I said, something else to consider.
