I'm not at all convinced that you would need or even benefit from an amplifier. There's quite a bit of signal power available in the air.

None of the Seattle market is going to be reliably received. You may get some favorable atmospheric dependent signal propagation from time to time but otherwise, those signals are too weak and distant. Of all the Seattle stations I might attempt, KCPQ (real CH-13) is the most promising... I might be inclined to experiment with an Antennacraft Y10713 and an Antennas Direct 'Juice' preamplifier. If I saw some signal but needed a bit more gain, I'd then consider ganging another Y10713. (This would arguably be going to extreme measures.)
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.)
