You'd probably get the most cost-effective results if you were to add at least 5' to your mast so the antenna cleanly misses your neighbor's rooftop with a couple of feet to spare. As it is now,...

FWIW, the HD7000 is pretty much the same as the RCA 751 with a few bolt-on extra pieces for optional low-VHF improvement. I've got one that I included in my last antenna comparison shootout from...

My usual suggestion for maximized reception with a plot like that would be a DB4e with the reflectors removed plus a VHF dipole.
