Yet another thread I'm sure for you guys for antenna selection, but I promise I have searched and no one seems to be from where I am. (Oshkosh, WI)
As I would like an attic only install, I understand my options are more limited. If necessary, I can do a roof installation, but I'm not sure I have to if I buy the right antenna. (Plus, I don't have the outdoor wear and tear on the antenna)
For reference, I have been considering these two recommended antenna's as I figure more gain is always better than less. I'm just concerned about size (4 ft high attic at it's peak) and if I get an UHF only antenna, about the VHF-HI range than FOX (WLUK) channel 11 is on. Also, I would like to get channels 15 and 43 if possible, but those are in different directions. I have a second HDHomeRun tuner that could be used on a separate antenna if I have to. Otherwise, it's going on the Time Warner Cable line in for open QAM channels.

Antenna's Direct 91XG
What kind of Terrestrial Antenna do you presently have: None
Is the Antenna to be/or installed: Attic
How high above ground is your Antenna installed/proposed: only ~10-12ft :/
Do you have an Antenna Rotator: No, ideally I would like to be a couch potato.
How many linear Cable feet is it between your Antenna and the most far TV: I will be using an HDHomeRun with ~1-2 ft RG6 cable from the antenna in the attic.
How many TV sets will be/are presently being used, on this system: N/A
Are you/do you plan to integrate Cable or Satellite Services with this system: No
Is there anything else you would like to provide concerning construction, obstructions or geographical issues? There is a large brick apartment building (2 stories) directly to the east of my location. As I don't see any channels to the east, this shouldn't be an issue.
