WYBN will also be difficult. It is more than 50 dB weaker than your strongest signals.

A C2V indoors just isn't good enough.

You need an antenna with more gain, in a better location, and with a good preamp for WYBN. As ADTech said in your previous thread:

Your odds of reliable reception of that station are very poor unless you go to a substantially upgraded system. It's a lower power (15 k) station with a directional transmitting antenna located 40 miles away that only sends 9.5 kW in your direction. Unfortunately, there's another mountain peak right in front of Windham Mtn where their transmitter is located which effectively shadows their signal from the direction of Troy. If you click on the call letters for WYBN-LD on your chart, a new tab should open that illustrates the path profile for that station. You'll have to decide how much additional effort (expense) is justified in an attempt to improve reception of that station.
I couldn't have said it any better.

If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
