If you get something like the C1C, or one of the Turk's, you could turn it to the east, and check out how well you get that Channel (8) even though it is a 1Edge. Don't be afraid to experiment a little, you can always put things back like they were !
I am still quite confused about antennas. I looked up the C1C, and it looks like they have a non-amplified antenna that you can use indoors. I'm not sure about amplifiers because I tried a winegard ss3000 antenna and didn't find any difference between it and my flat/rabbit ear type, so I returned it. We don't have an attic, just an alpine roof, so I don't know about going to the expense and trouble to mount an antenna up there (could not possibly do it ourselves.) I've also seen an antenna that looks like a flat piece of cardboard that you put on your wall. I've noticed that wind really affects our reception, too. Is there a good indoor antenna that is nice and strong and not too expensive?
