Antenna help please in tacoma WA area

Here is the TV analysis report. http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...267e6bed79c1ad

First off I would like to use a channel master CM4228HD to receive channels but want to do attic mount due to HOA rules. The analysis factors in a 30 foot height which is correct for my attic. Just want an opinion on if this setup will work given my average low signal strength at my house. Also plan on useing a CM7777 preamp to boost what signal I get only plan on hooking up two TV's both with 40 feet of the antenna.

Tv antennas and Tv reception

Here is the FEDERAL LAW that has been effect for 16 Years. This Federal Law OVER RULES , Hoa's , housing coven-nuts , neigh-boor hood restrictions , cities , counties , states , and All other crazies that dislike and even hate antennas. http://www.fcc.gov/guides/over-air-r...n-devices-rule. Hoa's are well aware of this Federal Law that says Yes you can install and use antennas above the roof of your house. Yet still try and scam people into thinking that they can not have antennas. Federal Laws should be for human rights and stuff like that , but because there are some real nut cases out there that were trying to take away every ones right to have antennas there is now a Federal Law that says Yes you can have and use antennas.

If a antenna is installed in the attic , the first 3 tv stations in the green reception zone of the tvfool radar map will be received and thats it. The other digital tv stations/channels are Very Weak , CW , MyNetwork , ABC , CBS , ION , NBC , and more digital tv channels Will Not be received.

Install a Winegard HD7698P antenna with a Winegard AP8700 preamp above the roof aimed at about 335 degree magnetic compass. Here is how to aim antennas , http://www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html. Here are some strong and sturdy antenna mounts , http://www.ronard.com/909911.html , http://www.ronard.com/34424560.html , http://www.ronard.com/ychim.html , http://www.ronard.com. Buy the ronard mounts from solidsignal by typing the word ronard in the solidsignal search box or buy from ronard.

Think about this , would a Federal Law be written and passed into law that says you can install and use antennas , be written and passed into law , if it was a few locals that agreed that they were not going to have antennas?? The answer is no there would be no Federal Law. The Federal Antenna Law became a Federal Law because there are in fact crazies that will make Laws that No One can have or install antennas. Even now as I type this they are working at all levels of society and laws to make it so no one can have antennas. Think I'm off the deep end ?? Think again.

Sadly, the hill just north and northeast of you blocks the signals from Seattle and Tiger Mountain near Issaquah.

I agree with Electron, attic mounting will leave you with KCPQ-FOX, KTBW-Religous & KBTC-PBS.
