Welcome to the forum, Rick.
I'm beginning to think multipath rather than weak signal is behind my problems and maybe yours, too. I sure don't understand why things seem to be worse now, though. The common symptoms seem to be a varying signal, macroblocking and dropouts. The usual solutions involve fiddling the location and orientation of the antenna (up, down, left, right, this way and that), using a more directional antenna, or maybe lowering the signal strength (with an eye to dropping the reflection signal low enough for the tuner to ignore it).
I even tried turning my antenna 180 degrees away from KMPH's transmitter to no good effect. I'm frustrated that the tuners in my cheap-o digital converter boxes seem more immune than the tuner in my pricey TV, but they are a year newer.
For now, I guess, the solution is to experiment, experiment, experiment.
