Question Improving Reception & Signal - Baltimore

I have 2 old CRT TV's that receive OTA reception with converter boxes. The 1st floor TV has a DTVPal and the basement TV has a RCA STB7766C box. I used a splitter on the 1st floor and utilized the coaxial cables running through the walls down to the basement to split the signal from a GE #24703 Antenna on the 1st floor. So far this setup has been working pretty well.

The TV on the 1st floor gets all local channels clearly. The basement TV only gets 2, 45, and 54 though.

Neither receives PBS, I would would like to be able to get it since I like to watch several show on PBS. Also I want to get more channels on the basement TV.

I tried using a few different antennas for this setup. First was an RCA ANT301, and a Terk HDTVi. Neither seemed to help much to improve the signal.

I am wondering what suggestion and advice the Antenna and Reception experts on here have? What would you recommend I do?

Here is my TVFool report. Your help is very much appreciated.
