Thankfully, K28MA is a duplicate of KXJB so I'm not really concerned here.

A quick < 1 minute view of all the XX-1 channels shows that they are at least coming in. No clue if they suffer from any dropout or pixelation issues.
That tells you the attenuator is making the signals weaker, but you don't yet know if reducing the signal strength reduces the dropouts and pixelation.
If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
