If you want to use an attic antenna without resorting to an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner"), try this intriguing antenna design from Stan Gibilisco (W1GV). The antenna is a simple, easy to make, and fairly efficient dipole using end-loading coils.  Most of the material for this "stealth" antenna can be ordered online from Amateur Radio outlets or obtained locally from the nearest building supply or hardware store.
