The fairly wide spread of UHF stations calls for a 4-bay panel antenna such as the Antennacraft U4000, Antennas Direct DB4, Channel Master CM4221HD or Winegard HD-4400. All of these have wide forward patterns... but not as wide as I wish. The spread between real channel 33 and 35 is 90 so you may have some trouble finding a single aim point that gives you all stations. Try aiming at about 255 to start, pan left and right to get the best line-up

There are three high-VHF stations at 300 so you'll need an Antennacraft Y-5713 for those. A UVSJ would be used to combine the signals from the two antennas.

Driving one or two sets should not need an amplifier unless you need the 100' run of coax. An Antennas Direct CPA-19 would overcome all of that loss and more.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
