Most folks are looking for simple and reliable.

Any of the reputable antenna brands 4-bay UHF panel antenna facing east would give you a fairly comprehensive line-up.

U4000, DB-4, DB-4e, CS4, CM-4221 or HD4400.

However, at the risk of being more complex, if you want to see the signals from other directions, I was thinking of a Winegard HD7698P plus preamp (CPA-19 or HDP-269) and a rotator (NTE U-106 + TB-105). I was thinking of a somewhat unconventional method of connecting the two antenna systems:

The result is that you would end up with one antenna feed that would serve general viewing needs. You would have the option to run the axillary antenna to one, some or all sets... depending on your preference. (For the sports fan with a "man-cave" TV, wanting to see signals from out of town, this idea may make good sense.)

This idea can easily fit on a tripod and 10' mast section. The larger rotating antenna would be at the top.
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.)
