Please HELP!

Here is my link: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...e1c6a082b2e08b

All I am looking for is CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox. My confusion is that on antenna web it says that the channels I want are yellow and that I would need an attic antenna. This report says different. I basically want to know if I can use a one direction (better reception) indoor antenna with just VHF and what specs would I look for in an antenna? Thank you for any help you can give.

TVFool, is the standard on most antenna forums.

An attic is an unpredictable location and many of the veteran posters on forums, advise against it.

Great, I didn't feel good about that anyway. Any other advice you could give me? Is multi directional or one direction going to make a difference? I appear to be about 22 miles away from signal.

You need to generate a TVFool report. What you've linked to is an incomplete link to the input page. Check out this sticky from GroundUrMast on how to create the most reliable report. Make sure you copy the url from the actual radar plot that's generated.

Almost certainly yes, but whether it's a good thing or a bad thing depends on a lot of variables, and the TVFR is needed before anyone can say which, or which antenna(s) is(are) most suitable.

I always advise that attics be treated like Forrest Gump's Mama's box of chocolates.
