Do I need to buy a booster? | Installing

I'm 84. I lived in France for 30 years. I now live alone atop the cliffs at Folkestone, looking directly through my lounge window at Boulogne Mont Lambert Freeview (TNT) transmitter about 60 km (40 miles) away - over the horizon.

I cannot use a loft or roof aerial. I am able to receive Chans 32, 34 & 37 ((Mpx R7, R1, R6 ) reliably, and Chan 23 (Mpx R2) unreliably with a One For All amplified indoor loop aerial (SV9360 R01) plus a grill from my oven as a reflector. I get Chan 26 rarely & Chan 30 never.

I would like to try a compact yagi or log-periodic, and would really appreciate your advice or opinion on a type or a make & model that would cover the whole band reliably.
