Better antenna suggestion

I am using ClearStream™ 2V Long Range UHF/VHF DTV Antenna with a Antennas Direct CPA-19 preamp installed with a 2 way splitter going to 2 tvs. This antenna is installed in my back fence with in a PVC poll almost 15 to 18 foot tall.

There are couple of channel, for example WPBA-BT 30.1 is iffy. On a very bright sunny and I can get the channel but most of the time I have no-signal issue. This is very frequent and I would really like to get this channel. If I play with the antenna angel, i may get somewhat better reception but I lose many other stations. My antenna is at 260 degree magnetic compass.

Is there a better or more powerful antenna that you can recommend?

Nothing out there stronger than the antenna I have now?

Install a Winegard HD7698P antenna aimed at about 235 degree magnetic compass direction.
