New antenna and boom on SV305?

So I just got back from a week it in the NTM 305 with the DW and 3 kids... And no all working antenna for the kids to watch TV on their down time, rain, etc.

The antenna is fixed, nonadjustable. In my Prowler, I had a boom that could be raised and rotated and got GREAT reception. I'm thinking of adding the same to the FR - any thoughts?

As a point of comparison, the old setup got 50+ channels in my driveway, the current one gets 10, half of which are pixelated and tiled...

Any feedback is appreciated!

The antenna on my surveyor is quite useless to, but as you say they are supposed to be omni directional, I liked the old raise it up and turn till you get something style.
