Thank you for the generic information, but I was looking for more specific answers to my questions in the opening post. Particularly, someone who can analyze/compare the signals power and distances and maybe recommend a course of action; I'm looking to add to my current configuration, not to completely replace everything.

My antenna is in the attic (it's been there for about three years) and I don't plan to move it or to replace it anytime soon. I understand that a roof-mounted antenna is probably needed to pick up red channels, but I have already picked up one of the red channels listed in my signal analysis without a pre-amplifier: ABC (22.1). And, since it seems to be a weaker signal than Fox (44.1), I am willing to try a pre-amplifier to see if I can pick up Fox (or other red channels). Also, I would like more stable signals from the yellow channels.

I really hope that someone can help me with my specific questions (six bullets in the opening post).
