Antenna Suggestion for IA

I need some suggestions for a new antenna. I currently have a clearstream 2 with a winegard pre-amp. I have occasionally been able to pick up KWWL and KCRG, but both have been known to drop out and seem to be extremely sensitive to antenna direction. I have not been able to get KGAN with this setup. I'm considering buying a larger antenna, but I want to make sure it will get the job done. Here's my fool report:

Just one TV is connected now, but the antenna feed is run to pretty much every room in the house (6+ rooms). The TV is a RCA Rear projection from 2005. The preamp is winegard AP-8700.

TV Antennas and Reception

I suggest a Winegard HD7697P with No preamp. I suggest have the antenna connected to the one Tv , no splitters. .If more then one Tv is to be connected at other locations then use a distrabution amplifier such as the ChannelMaster CM3412 or CM3414. . Do not use the preamp it is likely to be overloaded by the strong signals of KWKB , KIIN , KFXA . Direct the antenna at about 340 magnetic compass. Here is how to aim Tv antennas , http://www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html . Read and understand this about , Real Digital Tv Channels , Virtual Digital Tv Channels , Analog Tv Channels , http://forum.tvfool.com/showthread.php?t=695 .
