A little 400 foot hill is not likely to be in your way unless you are at the very base of that hill and directly in the RF shadow.

You must be in the perfect storm. I cannot even sniff a signal from WXII with a directional yagi. I'm currenly about 5 feet off the ground but will be extending it another 15 ft this weekend, don't know if it will make a difference
