UHF only antennas do not block any and all VHF signal... But they simply don't do a good job of reliable VHF reception either. The symptoms you've described are quite typical of trying to use a UHF only antenna in a UHF+VHF market.

Try the VHF add-on kit from Antennas Direct, or if you prefer, you can use an Antennacraft Y5713 (with this option you'll need to provide a UHF/VHF combiner also). Regardless of which you choose, reception of real CH-7,9&11 would be more reliable.
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.)
