I need help getting the right antenna

Here is my Radar plot.
I need help finding out a good antenna to get most channels.
I will use a 15 foot pool outdoor. Right now I will use it for one TV but option to add multiple tv in the future is a possibility.
Appreciate any help.

What antenna and preamp are you using now?

What channels do you want that you are not getting?

Right now I am not using any antenna. The one I had fell down and broke apart.
I'm looking to get a new outdoor antenna again and hoping you can recommend one since the last one I had is already a few years of old technology and I am sure better ones are in market now.

My old one was a ClearStream™ 2V Complete Long Range Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna with Antennas Direct CPA-19 preamp.

Sorry to hear about your antenna. Is the preamp still OK?

Will you be mounting the new antenna in the same location on the 15 foot pole?

The C2V is still current technology and suitable for your location if you can get it up in the air and in the clear. If you want to try something different you might consider the Winegard HD7694P. It has a little more gain, but has a narrower beamwidth which means it must be aimed at the transmitter; you can't "split-the-difference" between two directions.

Yes, the pre amp is ok.
I have new 15 ft pole made out of steel 3/4 conduit.
I already test ran the pole and it's very sturdy and hoisted straight.
So, I will get the same ClearStream™ 2V antenna.

Here's my setup.
It's a 15 ft (10ft+5ft) 3/4 steel electric conduit, top where I have the antenna attached is a 2 ft PVC pipe.
After scanning for channels I got 47 channels but some are duplicate, so about 34 HD quality channels.
