Indeed, I would love to put it outdoors. But this is a townhome development and people are picky and are in close proximity.
As it is, I only need to clear up some intermittent blockiness on 4.1 and 29.1 and bring it 7.1, which has been lost in my current antenna position (although, overall, this seems to be the best and most consistent position for the antenna). Weird thing is, this is the first position that lost 7.1.
If I can clear up those three stations, I'm a happy man. 2.1 comes in with 5 bars and all Toronto stations are rock solid. 17.1 is also reliable in this position.
EDIT: just checked, and 7.1 is back with 4/5 bars. WEIRD.
So, does everyone else think that a 13dB amp is more than enough?
