You know, when I tried out the CM Stealthtenna just for the heck of it last fall, not only did it pick up all the UHF channels at 90 - 95%, but it was also picking up all of the analog channels from hi-VHF on up beautifully and clear as day. This was from 41 miles out, with a 75 foot coax run and using a CM7777 pre-amp, but from only 7 - 8 miles out, I'd imagine it would probably perform similarly without the amp.
It is totally bi-directional, so I don't know if it would work in his attic or particular outdoor situation, though.
But I just thought I'd mention it anyway, since you were looking for something that wasn't too large and designed to pick up both hi-VHF and UHF well.
