The report you just posted leads me to suggest using the combination of an Antennas Direct 91XG + Antennacraft Y10713 + RCA TVPRAMP1R. (The 'big guns').

PBS may be operating at lower power levels, but the ATSC standard has them operating at the same gross data rate as all other digital stations in North America, 19.39 Mb/s. They can allocate portions of that bandwidth to various program streams, so when transmitting multiple programs, no one program will have access to all the available bandwidth. Transmitted power levels may affect your reception, the transmitted data rate is not a factor though.
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.)
