Attic Antenna Help

I am a newb trying to find an antenna for my attic to receive the major network HD channels in green from my signal analysis:

I have a two story house with brick on 3 sides, siding on the back. There is a coax cable that runs from the attic to my crawl space where there is a splitter that feeds home run cables to each TV.

What antenna would you recommend? Would I need some kind of a signal booster because of the long runs?

Thanks in advance for your help.

The Raleigh-Durham stations are less than 20 miles from you, an you should use a VHF-high-band plus UHF antenna aimed at 100 degrees as measured by your compass. I would recommend using a Winegard HD-7694P or an AntennaCraft HBU-33. if you are running multiple TV sets from the antenna, consider adding a small distribution amplifier in line before the splitter to be sure that you have enough signal for all of your TV sets. Good amps include the Winegard HDA-100 and the Channel Master CM3400
