Sounds like you need a better outside antenna. Or a Booster

Antennaweb says he needs a medium sized directional antenna with pre-amp. His ABC is from Bakersfield, in the VHF range, about 59 miles away. Since his stations are spread all around the compass, he will also need a rotator.

I have over 200 bucks into my Antenna, Rotator & Booster and I can't get a HD channel over 45 miles. But I live in Flat ass Florida so since the earth's curve is 12 miles that puts me out of sight of most distant towers. Now you being in the LA area you have alot of hills to bounce the signal off of so you may be ok.
