Need Equipment Advice - Eastern PA

OK folks, getting ready to cancel the DirecTV and go OTA. Here's my report:

In looking at this, keep in mind my only real concern is picking up the five network channels (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and PBS) that are all aligned roughly 30 miles to the north-northeast. If I can get anything else, that would be gravy, but I really don't plan to move the antenna around. If I can get it locked on those five stations, that should be pretty much all I need.

My plan is to try a Clearstream 2V antenna, since the channels I want are a mix of UHF and VHF. My questions are:

1. Is that a reasonable antenna choice as a starting option?
2. Will I need to add an amplifier, and if so, what type?

Appreciate the input. Thanks!
