Yes, I recommended a large all channel antenna... prefaced with "If I were starting from scratch, using the 25' AGL signal predictions..." I later edited the post to include my reasoning.

To be honest, noise on the low-VHF band and co-channel interference from the opposite direction make me think that the HD8200U has very little chance of reliable reception to the NBC affiliate WMC-DT, real CH-5. If there is a better NBC option, I've missed it.

Even a pair of cut-to-channel Yagis, stagger stacked to maximize the F/B ratio may not be enough to 'get' WMC-DT.

It's OK for anyone to agree or disagree with me. Please be polite and professional either way.
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.)
