Try a Pacific Monolithics MMIC for $20 in units of 1:
here's the datasheet:

here's where to buy it:

SKU=3078&T1=3&SK1=PM&PNO=&PNM=

This device will easily fit between the RF-input N-connector and the 
decoupling capacitor (you will need to lift the input from ground).  It has 
13 dB of gain and a 1.5 NF, getting you comparable performance to the TSI 
3733.
