I ran a search at rabbitears.info using an estimate of your location. The results I saw suggest you may need to mount as high as 60' AGL to obtain line-of-sight conditions which the ANT751 would do best with. A larger antenna will provide more gain but will also have a narrower forward beam width that makes it harder to receive signals to the left and right of the aim point..

It would be helpful if you could run a search using the true location. Based on what I see you will need to set the search range to at least 70 miles rather than the default of 60 miles. Also, set the antenna height to the highest practical value that you could mount an antenna. Clearing/avoiding nearby trees, terrain and structures is a priority for reliable reception.
