Thank you. So I stuck my antenna out a second story window, same antenna, same TV, same direction, etc and it is worse than in the attic. It didn't even get UHF. Of course the attic is higher. I will take everyones advice and build one with the 9 inch whiskers, put it in the attic and call it a day. I hope it gets better UHF as well. Next weekends project. Thanks for the advice.
