help with attic and outdoor antenna

Hi all,
Thanks in advance for the help. Here is my signal results (height at 10ft):

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...e1c676f64250e5

Channels at the ~330 Magn direction should be sufficient for me, as these cover all the major networks.

I have 2 TVs with the potential of adding a 3rd one. I plan on using SiliconDust HDHomeRun PLUS as well.

What I am looking for are options both in the attic and the roof top. The more compact the better, as it will be easier to get around the wife-factor.
I have read through the forum and totally understand the negative aspects of an attic installation. But wouldn't the strong signals that I am seeing overcome the drawbacks of an attic installation?

Yes start reception in the attic.

Aim a , www.antennacraft.net , HBU11K antenna at about 330 degree magnetic compass direction.

Here is how to aim antennas, www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html

Use a Real and Actual magnetic compass to aim antenna , do not trust a cell phone or tablet compass.

--->Many<---Digital Broadcast Tv Stations/Channels will be received.

A antenna system amplifier is Not required.

For 1 Tv connected use No splitter.

For 2 Tv's connected use a 2 way splitter.

For 3 Tv's connected use a 3 way splitter.

For 4 Tv's connected use a 4 way splitter.

-------------

If reception situations.

Such as and not limited to Multi-Path -->Strong Multi-Path Tv Signals Bouncing All Around in the Attic due to the Strong Signal Strength Local Tv Transmissions , happen in the attic that are not resolvable with antenna aim and location adjustments in the attic then move the HBU11K antenna to above the roof in such a manner that reception is not , obstructed , impeded , blocked , by the roof and building in the directions of , North West , East , North East.

Yes put the antenna in the attic.

And Yes at some time in the future it is Ok to move the HBU11K antenna to above the roof.
