An easy 'hack' that comes to mind is the removal of the reflector screen from a panel antenna. You would get more gain in the rearward direction, but you'll reduce the forward gain and directivity of the antenna. (I see ADTech gets the credit for that thought)

If you're into the idea of doing some antenna modification, consider building an antenna such as the M4. http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=100137

I personally favor using multiple fixed aim antennas, each optimized for receiving the station or group of stations the antenna is aimed at.

In this case I would use two antennas such as the Antennas Direct 91XG or Winegard HD9095P. One aimed at 121 and the other aimed at 315. I'd use one of the following methods to connect the antennas to the TV.
