Mother's TV Fool Reception Report. Any suggestions?

Mother's TV Fool Reception Report: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...e1c625f3fd4b8c

Mohter uses about 35 feet of RG59 cable to make the connection from the antenna to the tv and only uses one tv. Mother has a large Radio Shack UHF-VHF Antenna but I don't know the model number. Would anyone care to help me decide what degrees to point the antenna and help me decide if she needs a UHF antenna to go along with the antenna she has. Also, does anyone think she may be a preamplifier.

She gets NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS at this time.

Thanks in advance!
