You best opportunity for reliable reception year-round is to mount the antenna outdoors, clear of obstructing buildings and vegetation. A roof covered in wet snow is going to absorb more signal that a clean dry roof, so an antenna in the attic may have trouble as the weather changes.

Your TV Fool report suggests that you may benefit from a amplifier. If the antenna stays in the attic, consider locating a Channel Master CM-3410 distribution amplifier near the antenna... It would provide plenty of gain to overcome all the losses caused by splitting and the cable runs to each TV.

If you move the antenna to an outdoor mount, consider using a Winegard HDP-269 preamp.
