Do you really need the distribution amplifier? The TV antenna and 
amplifier are both rather broad band, and process your 6M signal along 
with the VHF TV signals. Interfering with all channels sounds like an 
overload problem, so the simplest solution may be replacing the 
distribution amp with a low loss, passive splitter. That reduces the 
amount of 6M signal reaching the TV tuner. If you can get good TV 
reception without the amplifier, removing it may be the easiest and 
least expensive solution.
