Best Multi-path

I have posted this tvfool for my cottage in the past:

When I originally posted I had issues with my CM-4221HD but mounted a little higher with a preamp and was able to live with it for the limited time I was able to spend there last year. I finally found an option to mount even higher at 20' for this season and it seems some of the recommended antennas have changed over the last year by the experts (from Channel Master to Winegard).

The 116 degree stations (Fort Wayne) have no obstructions and are pretty good now. The South Bend stations at 311 degrees have some normal trees partially blocking.

My question is if there is an option that will give me better reception in both directions? Right now it is aimed at Fort Wayne with the signal strengths between 80 and 96 percent. I am picking up many of the South Bend stations in the 60's and 70's (but not all). Last year a U8000 was recommended but not sure if there are improved designs or hacks to other 8 bays which could provide better rear reception without losing what I have forward. I can't seem to find the information on what forward gains are lost when an 8 bay is hacked?

Thank you all again!
