First, note that the TVFool talks about true AND magnetic north. Make sure you are using the correct one (my phone app toggles between the two). Second, reception can vary even in a small area, so see if changing the location and angle affects the signal. Third, too much signal can cause as much of a problem as too little. If you have a device that shows signal strength and/or signal quality, it will be easier for you to make things work. Finally, identify/remedy any potential sources of interference. Other metal stuff, trees, etc.
: 2 (magnetic), LOS ==> this is VHF; the DB8e is optimized for UHF
69/17: 261 (magnetic), 2 edge ==> obstructed and nearly 50 degrees from the panel pointed to 308
48/47: 355 (magnetic), LOS
66/27: 342 (magnetic), LOS
68/32: 355 (magnetic), LOS
38/39: 355 (magnetic), LOS
62/18: 355 (magnetic), LOS
60/18: 355 (magnetic), LOS (broadcast from WFMP)
56/41: 356 (magnetic), LOS
25/31: 356 (magnetic), LOS
These should all be fine. Make the panels parallel to each other and point them to (342+356)/2 or 349 magnetic. See if that helps.
