Please understand the difference between a preamp, which is an antenna mounted amplifier designed to take low-level signals and raise them up, and a distribution amplifier, which takes strong signals and gives them enough power to run multiple TV sets. I didn't recommend a preamp for the same reason that Andy did: you have too many strong signals in the air to safely use a preamp without overloading it, but a distribution amplifier has much higher signal input levels, and would be indicated in your multiple-TV set system.
