The dipole rods on your antenna should be extended so that each rod is about 12 to 14 inches long and the rods should be tilted to be as close to horizontal as possible. The antenna should be facing south, hopefully with a clear view at a window or at least facing an an exterior wall which has no metal in or on it, such as siding or foil faced insulation.

The manual for your antenna indicates it has a built in amplifier which is equipped with a control... I would expect best results when the gain is set to minimum.
