I'll presume you are looking for access to each of the major network affiliates.
You have challenging terrain between you and the Sutro tower. You'll need a large, deep fringe antenna such as the Combo UHF/H-VHF Winegard HD7698P. Also, a medium gain, high input preamplifier such as an Antennas Direct CPA19 would be needed.
As an alternate, you can get just a bit more UHF performance with the UHF only Antennas Direct XG-91 and the H-VHF only Winegard YA-1723. An Antennacraft 10G221 preamp has separate inputs for UHF and VHF. The mounting mechanism of the XG-91 can be tilted up a few degrees if needed, a possibility at your location.
Aiming at 260° per your compass you should be able to see the major networks from San Francisco.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper.
