Suggestions please to improve attic installation.

Here's a link to my TV fool report

I'm trying to get an in-attic installation working, and so far it's not great. I did have some success with a smaller antenna on a mast, so I was hoping that a larger one would be sufficient in the attic. We have shingles on plywood construction, single storey.

I'm using a Winegard 7697, and a LN-100 pre-amp located with the antenna in the attic. The antenna is aimed pretty much at 170 magnetic, +- < 10 degrees. The coax run after the amp is about 35 feet to a Hauppage tuner card. I'm getting only a couple of decent channels. removing or adding the amp doesn't change much.

Could I have a bad tuner card?
