What are your thoughts on the "Mohu Sky 60 Amplified Attic/Outdoor HDTV Antenna"?
The larger an antenna you use, the more "antenna gain" you get. There is no disadvantage to a too-big antenna for a given location, other than the physical size and wind load. You can use the added antenna gain to overcome the attenuation of however many splitters you want.

Antenna gain is superior to amplifier gain. An amplifier will always decrease the quality of the signal as it increases the amplitude. A bigger antenna will increase the signal amplitude with no loss in signal quality.

Be skeptical of little antennas with big claims.
