For most of the summer I have been getting glitches on channel 8 and it has been getting progressively worse in the past couple weeks. I even lost it all together Sunday night a couple weeks back. I added channel 10 to my tuner and it is much better.

Does this happen OTA as well?

EDIT: I take back my statement that it only happens on WOOD TV. The difference is obvious when switching back and forth between WOTV and WZZM (same content - LLWS documentary). WOTV looks like it is severely bandwidth-limited.
Yes it does OTA. It completely went blank for about 5 seconds and my wife actually thought the TV was on the fritz. Channel 8.

I believe the 4K antenna as much as the "digital antenna". I'm still using a 22 year old medium size antenna that pulls in all the GR TV channels, FM and FM-HD. I use a rotator, but rarely. I do NOT LIKE ladders and I owned it from our last home in RI, I had the guy put it up just in case.
