Antenna suggestions for NE FL area

I've currently moved into a temporary house (maybe 6 months). I'd like to get all the major networks with a roof top antenna. The home currently has a 1 1/4" J-pole on the peak of the roof. The coax to reach it is about 40 feet from TV to antenna so I assume no amp will be needed. I would prefer a stationary antenna (multidirectional) to decrease cost since this is a temporary dwelling.

I can currently get all but NBC indoors but it requires repositioning and alot of luck. I would love to get the NBC affilate if there are inexpensive options avaiable. I've looked around at antennas but the claims seem quite unrealistic and inflated on many advertisments. i.e. small directional antennas with rotor, remote and up to 35db of gain for $30?! Those seem to follow the axiom of "if it seems to be too good too be true..." 35db alone seems completely unrealistic.

Below is a TV Signal Analysis report for my area (area code 32696). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A ClearStream 2V aimed to the north should work.

Thanks for the response ADTech. I assume that means no NBC on a budget . Should I install a grounding rod with a grounding block or are there other methods out there now? It's been years since I dealt with antennas hence the reason I decided to just ask the experts .

WNBW, real CH-9 is an NBC affiliate and the C2V should be capable of receiving it... If installed clear of obstructions.

Thanks GroundUrMast. I had no idea that was an NBC affiliate. I was looking at the network column on the TVfool signal report which didn't list a network for that signal. That's great news for me!
