A useful idea if the station uses elliptical polarization also.

With circular polarization, equal power is available in the horizontal and vertical plane. With elliptical polarization, the amount of power radiated in the horizontal plane is usually greater than in the vertical. rabbitears is kind enough to publish the values for each station in their database.
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.)
