I'm mainly interested in the Boston stations around 177-180º but if I could easily get the closer LOS channels too that would be a bonus. Thanks!
I think you have a very promising TVFool.com report. Have you googled the call signs to see which channels you would like to have? That's the best first step.
Taking a quick look, to the north, you have...
WBIN @344 Antenna TV, Grit
Cozi; WNEU is rumored to be an NBC affiliate come the first of the year
WMUR ABC, MeTV
WENH PBS, Explore, World, Create
WUTF @210 Unimas, Bounce, GetTV, Escape
WGBH @165 PBS, World
WCVB @165 ABC, MeTV
WBZ @165 CBS, Decades
WFMP @163 The Works, Comet TV
WHDH @162 NBC, This TV
WGBX @165 PBS, Create, Kids
WLVI @163 CW, BUZZR
WFXT @163 Fox, Escape, Laff
WSBK @165 MyNetwork, Heroes and Icons
WBPX @163 ION, Qubo, ION Life, Shop, QVC, HSN
WYDN @165 Daystar
WJAR @177 NBC, MeTV, Comet
WNAC @177 Fox, MyNetwork, Laff
WPRI @177 CBS, Bounce, GetTV
I would consider pointing a DB8
pointed towards 165. I suspect you will be able to pull in WBIN and WNEU from the back. (If not, you can remove the reflector.) You might even get WNAC and WPRI (I used to get vhf 11 on a DB8). If you are interested in WMUR/WENH, add a Stellar Labs 30-2476
vhf antenna to the mast.
This is a gain chart for the DB8 with reflectors.
Usual caveats apply for an attic install.
