Both stations are out of range. You'd probably have to move 30 miles north to a hilltop with a clear northern exposure, especially for KGPX.

Itemize the stations that were lost when the splitter was installed. Is the list the same for all TV sets? How about the TV set that was used for your initial setup and testing?

Do not use any amplifier. Signals are already calculated (and assumed) to be moderately strong. Inappropriate amplification often opens up the system to new problems.

Well, yes, that is indeed true. The hard part is that the "right place" is somewhere that is not behind the trees.

Given your stated budget and, considering the channel changes coming down the road when that ION station will move the UHF-16, the DB4e would offer your best chance.

If the signal path was through trees and reception went faulty particularly when it rained, the problem is the trees. A different antenna is unlikely to change that.

Comments regarding coax cable

That indicates you probably have QS cable but bought "regular" RG6 connectors. If you have to struggle to get the connector on, you have a mismatch.

Not, by any means. The cheaper stuff at the...

I'd go with a ClearStream 5 by itself aimed at Quincy or perhaps, just a bit to the north from that line (yes, there is a reason). It should pick up the two...

First thing to do is get the 2nd amplifier out of the system. You already have more than enough (borderline excessive) amplification from the built-in feature of that antenna.
