Ganging two DB-8e antennas may be the way to go, or at least worth testing.
No, you don't want 2 DB8e antennas. Your single DB8e contains 2 4-bay antennas that give you the null to make the strong signals weaker. Two DB8e antennas would make the beamwidth too narrow.

Ive been experimenting with a DB-8e antenna with a Wineguard preamp.
Which preamp? You need a preamp that is highly resistant to overload.
