Help with reception and maybe new antenna

Hi all I am having problems with reception. I do not know if I need a new antenna and amplifier
( I think the antenna I have is like an RCA 3036 with a few less vhf reflectors ) . I'm having some channels fade in and out a lot.
My antenna is about 30 ft up with a radioshack UHF/VHF/FM amplifier model 15-1109. The coax is rg6 about 100 ft. This goes to a 4 way splitter there is 4 tv,s with 2 runs of about 30 ft one 40 ft and one 10 ft.

there are trees in neighbor's yard which probably doesnt help but I cannot move the tower to a different location. I will try to attache a couple of pictures and tvfool report. sorry cannot upload picture of antenna.

Thanks all

P.S. Could someone suggest the optimal direction for pointing my antenna. Please
