I would expect an indoor install to come at the price of signal strength and quality, especially if you have to shoot through nearby trees as well. But barring metal roof or similar construction materials, you should be able to have enough signal available.

I would suggest erring on the side of caution, if you have room in your attic, use a bit more antenna than needed. A Winegard HD7694 or larger, pointed toward 140 per your compass. You may have trouble with WUNC-PBS because it's going to be arriving from more than 90 off the line to the rest of the stations.

If you have trouble with PBS you can add a rotator or a second antenna plus an A/B switch. Other options are possible but the $50 budget requirement rules them out.
