It's actually easier than that.

Since you explicitly said "basic stuff" (major networks only), you only need to worry about two specific groupings of broadcast towers that are specific to the Lansing DMA: The towers at 101-103° true )CBS, PBS) and 163-168° true (ABC, NBC, FOX). The stations from the adjacent cities (Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Flint, Detroit,etc) are probably superfluous to your basic objective.

NBC is available on WILX, VHF 10 out of Battle Creek.

That said, my first choice would be a ClearStream 2V as it allows the flexibility to dismount and aim the VHF section independently should that be necessary. The 2nd choice would be the ClearStream 2MAX which has the advantage of being available in local retail stores (Lowe's, Walmart, & Best Buy) and is extremely easy to assemble. In either case, the desired aiming would be southeast and then tweak from there as needed. Both of the suggested antennas have very broad beamwidths and should be easy to aim.

What is not included on the TVFool data are details about the immediate surroundings of the condo's attic area. If the available location(s) happen to require that the antenna be aimed point blank into another building or trees that are in the signal paths, then all bets are off.
