Unhappy how can I join-stack 2 uhf and one vhf antenna?

So I live in a pretty poor reception area with the stations color coded in red, blue and violet, the few that are yellow are don't care, go figure eh?

According to the tv's signal quality indicator all the stations are marginal.

virt act strength sn id
4 30 52 20 komo/abc
5 25 49 19 king/nbc
7 24 68 kiro/cbs
7 23 56 22 kiro/cbs secondary alt channel
16 25 48 19 kong/abc
33 33 73 30 kwpx/ion
46 12 56 22 kuse
51 30 51 20 kuns
56 34 74 30 kwdk

poor or no reception

6 6 kymu
9 9 kcts/pbs
11 11 kstw/cw
13 22 38 22 kcpq/fox
22 31 kzjo
22 36 kzjo
44 16 kffv/metv


Currently I have a 40 ft mast with a cell antenna and a original cm-4228 bowtie pointed west connected to 100 ft lmr-400 that feeds into a cm-3414 4 way powered splitter.

I am thinking about adding (stacking) a RadioShack U-120 uhf and a VHF antenna (model unknown at this point) and adding cm-7777 preamp with the hopes of getting more signal

I do have several trees about 100ft west of the antenna that should probably be removed, and a hill 4 miles away that basically blocks line of sight


any thoughts, suggestions or advice on this project?

thanks
