New antenna help for Eagle Mountain UT

Hey Guys I am looking for some help,

Here is my report:

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...a362bbe99a7f36

Right now I am just using some old rabbit ears and I can pick up channels 2, 4, 5 and 7. Usually with no problems.

I am trying to pick up channel 13 (fox) and 30 (cw) and no matter how I move the anetenna I can not even get a signal for those stations.

I was thinking about getting one of these for my attic:

http://cgi.ebay.com/AMPLIFIED-VHF-UH...83472438337503

Would this work? If at all possible I don't want to put it on my roof so I don't have to worry about grounding or lightning strikes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks.

The e-bay antenna is well known to be junk , junk , junk and crap , this cheap china antenna is a straight out rip off. The High Quality antenna manufactures and importers are Winegard , Channel Master , Antenna Craft , Antennas Direct. The antenna for your location is the XG91 , http://www.solidsignal.com , http://www.amazon.com . Also read and understand this http://forum.tvfool.com/showthread.php?t=695 . All the receivable channels are in the UHF Tv band at your location. Point the antenna at 318 magnetic compass. Put the XG91 in the attic , no amplifier and see what channels ya get.
