What about a "Xtreme Signal HDB8X-NI 8-Bay VHF/UHF HDTV Bowtie Antenna"? Would that work?
OK for UHF, not good enough for VHF.

Winegard HD7698P antenna and Antennas Direct Juice preamp. No guarantee because of the distance, rough terrain, and curvature of the earth.

If the antenna is outside, the coax shield should be grounded with a grounding block that is connected to the house electrical system ground with 10 gauge copper wire for electrical safety and to reject interference. For further compliance with the electrical code (NEC), the mast should also be grounded in a similar manner to drain any buildup of static charge which will tend to discourage a strike, but the system will not survive a direct strike.

If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
