Thought I'd post an update on the results.

I installed an RCA ANT751 in the attic. At first, it worked well, receiving over 30 channels. Then I took down an old satellite dish that was mounted outside on the roof close to where the antenna was inside in the attic. Immediately we lost all our channels, even though the dish wasn't connected to anything.

I tested the equipment by trying the antenna on the roof, and it worked. Then I put the antenna back in the attic and installed an amplifier. Now we receive 80 channels.

Maybe I'm crazy, but I have a theory: the satellite dish was reflecting signals into the attic.

Anyway, it's working now, and that's what matters.
