I presume the 'their' in, "... their C4..." referrers to 'Antennas Direct'... The forward beam of the C4 is fixed and it's peak gain is spec'd at 5 dB less than the DB8e. The DB8e can be adjusted to provide either a narrow forward beam or wider. In this application, I think the DB8e will need to be adjusted to a moderately wide forward beam to optimize reception from the two main groups of signals.

(Note that I am suggesting the new DB8e, not the older DB8.)

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.)
