Antenna Advice

I have a Philips SDV 2940/27 and it does not really say in the guide how to tilt or aim the antenna.

Here is my location channel listings.

With the antenna indoors and I able to pick up quite a few channels. I am guessing my optimal direction would be 8-10 degrees, but I am not sure which way to aim this antenna.

The 'rabbit-ears' in the above link are viewed from above.

That style antenna is not extremely sensitive to aim. It will be equally sensitive in the two directions perpendicular to the two adjustable length rods. (If one rod points east and the other west, the antenna will be aimed at stations north and south.)
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.)
