Default 2M Antenna for roof?

Been trying to get into the NTS net on 145.310 for the last couple weeks, but they are just receiving static. I'm just using my FT-2900R and an N9TAX Slim Jim on a painter's pole in the back yard.

I'm wondering if a rooftop antenna will help me reach out better. If so, what would you guys recommend? I don't have any stupid HOA rules or anything, so I can put whatever I want up there. One of my neighbors has a pretty funky looking antenna, but I haven't been able to talk to him to see if it's a ham antenna or something else.

Maybe I should mount a Slim Jim on the roof?
