Thanks for the new report.
all of the rg6 is solid copper
Good, less DC voltage drop. The CPA-19 power supply is 200 mA, I think, so the preamp must draw less than that.
preamp is cp019
Good, the CPA-19 is resistant to overload, which you need with your strong signals, but your tuner might overload in some cases.
the rg6 is in schedule 40 1 inch pipe from the house to antenna base.
That will protect it from physical damage, but the coax might deteriorate from a buildup of condensation in the PVC.
If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
