Outdoor FM antenna signal loss help

Hi all,
I have an Antennacraft FM6 antenna mounted outside roughly 10-12 feet high (say 11 feet average).
My cable run (RG6 non quad shield), is 75 feet long roughly, and I lose the majority of all my upper frequencies. I had this same antenna mounted indoors and I got all of my Pittsburgh FM's clear, but outside, the very upper frequencies have way too much static.
What is the cure for this? I know a preamp would hurt more than help, from the research I've done.
I had a coworker tell me about a long wire run FM repeater, but I have no idea if this is actually a thing..or not.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. - Ignore the red underlines on the FM Fool report, I was trying to aim the antenna for these 2 stations and no luck.
