I panicked on Saturday when I was receiving drop outs and low readings on the HD reciver(60-70 signal strength). Previously I was recieving a signal strenght in the low 90's.

My area Zip Code is 11545

I rotated ther antenna almost 80 degrees and low and behold I was in the low 90's again.

I wonder why I needed to rotate the antenna after almost one year?

I also noticed that CBS, previously optimally tuned with a large Yagi in the attic has dropped completely out. My RS bow-tie by the set still gets so I am sure I can repoint and get it back. Something defintely changed

Which way was your antenna pointing before you moved it?

Also, which way is pointed now after you turned it?

I noticed dropouts last night for thr first time ever. Something changed.
