Any suggestions on what indoor to use to get Fox 8.1? I am in Cleveland using an amplified Mohu Leaf and get everything but Fox. I know it is VHF and that is my issue, but any recommendations for a VHF indoor or am I out of luck?

The signal for WJW is blanketing Cleveland rather nicely, so there must be an issue on your end. The Mohu Leaf is not designed for VHF channels like WJW, but I have had some luck receiving WJW with it in Akron, and you have a better shot at it than me. It's very touchy though, and I have to place it outside for it to lock onto WJW. If you can purchase a long coaxial cable and set the Mohu on a deck or patio, then that would be your best bet. Building materials can shield TV reception, especially aluminum siding. And indoor antennas are prone to interference from common household items. High-VHF channels are more prone to this type of interference as well. An antenna that's equipped with good old-fashioned rabbit ears may work decent enough to receive WJW. You said you're receiving everything except WJW... are you receiving WOIO? That's also a high-VHF channel, and it's weaker. So I wouldn't understand how you can get WOIO but not WJW.

If you can receive WOIO, then you shouldn't have an issue with WJW. Where in your house do you have the antenna located? Have you tried moving the antenna to a different location? Also, make sure it's as close to a south facing wall and pointed towards Parma.

Make sure it's facing Parma through a window. UHF penetrates walls better than VHF, aiming through a glass window (preferably without a metal screen) should improve your reception.

Also you should not need an amplified antenna anywhere in the City of Cleveland. An amplifier will overload with all the strong signals.

Me-TV was out again just after 2pm Wednesday. They must be using the SES 1 bird at 101.0°W.
Saw that it went out again today. I think you are right about the solar flares interfering with the satellite as someone on Me-TV's Facebook had problems with their affiliate losing the signal, but noted that it happens just before 2 PM. WOIO was quick to post the "difficulties" message though. Grit and Bounce were not affected.
