If you want to get into the DXing hobby, attempting to receive distant stations as atmospheric conditions provide temporary paths for radio waves, A large combination antenna or large UHF plus large VHF would be in order.

An example of a very high performance antenna system would be Antennas Direct 91XG + an Antennacraft Y10713 or Winegard YA1713 or HD5030. A premium rotator such as a HyGain AR-40 would be needed to reliably support and turn that large mass.
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.)
