Lot's of easy to receive signals per your report...

I'd mount an RCA ANT-751 above the roof, pointed west. If you have trouble with reception of the signals from the east, rotate the antenna 180 and try again.

If you have obstructions such as trees that can't be avoided, a larger antenna may be indicated.

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.)
