Amps are normally used to hang on to really weak signals in the "red" or start of the "gray" zones on people's TV Fool reports. Amps don't have much tolerance for very strong signals because they overload easily. Overloaded amps create distortion across all of your signals and can make things worse rather than better.

You have LOTS of very strong signals, so any amp you use is surely going to have problems. You should avoid amps of any kind (standalone or built-in to the antenna).

Just follow Dave's suggestions and you'll do well.
Thanks Andy; will do and purchase the antenna that he recommended.
