Agreeing with mtownsend, I would like to suggest that an amplifier wouldn't be my choice. You have plenty of signal available... IF you place an antenna where it can intercept it. The attic is worth trying, but the roof should be a winning location for sure. An amplifier would be a source of trouble, as it adds noise and distorts strong signals, mixing them together.

The suggested CM4220 or similar Antennas Direct DB-2 are excellent options. Either antenna should have no trouble delivering plenty of signal power with no need of any sort of amplifier. Start by facing 138 per your compass, fine tune the aim, then lock it down. I would expect 31 & 32, WXII & WUNL to make it in through the back of the antenna.
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.)
