30518 Any advice?

First thanks everyone for all the info in the forum.
I am in zip code 30518
I have install a 91-XG on the roof.
It is about 25 to 30 feet above the ground.
I have it aimed at 219 degrees magnetic.
Currently it is wired directly to the HDTV, will be adding two more tv's but need to get converter boxes.
No rotor or preamp is installed.

I am just asking if I am doing everything right, would it be worth changing orientation, adding a preamp, etc.
We are about to pull the plug on Directv and go with OTA and internet.

Thanks in advance for any info
Scott

The 91XG is a UHF-only antenna. Were you aware that you have two local VHF signals, WGTV 8 (PBS) and WXIA 10 (NBC) before buying this? If you're lucky and can see those two stations, then you probably need not do anything else. (Expect to receive all the channels at 218 degrees down to WDTA-LP 35 (53.1) or WTHC-LD 42) If you can't, then we need to talk further.
