Consider the Winegard HD7696P or HD7698P. You may need a distribution amplifier, but the strong signal from WZRA could be a problem.

Try the CM3414 amp or HDP-269 preamp and a passive splitter.

I see that you live along the gulf coast in Florida, I live along the gulf coast in Louisiana. The winegard 7698P antenna is over 14 feet long.Do you think you would have place to store that monsterious antenna if a hurricane is coming your way?
This is my tvfool report:

This is the antenna I have had for the last 2 years with NO PROBLEMS :
