That explains why I get better recption with cloudy weather. WCNC is coming in fine this morning, I guess the signal is bouncing off the clouds.

I'll take a look at the antenna suggestions you guys have made and see if I can get an outside one up.

Does this forum cover weather radio signal reception for weather radios?

I have a fairly new Midland WR-120 weather radio, and I have seen times when I got no alert in spite of warnings scrolling across the TV. I've ruled out incorrect radio settings. My reception signal comes from Spencer Mountain.
WBTV-3, WCNC-36, WJZY-46, and WMYT-55 all broadcast from tall towers in Dallas. Only WBTV has a top mounted stick antenna which is more omnidirectional. The others are side mounted panels which may have nulls in certain areas. Also, several radio signals are broadcast from these towers also, including 107.9, 105.3, 95.1, and 96.1. 105.3 used to be a popular local station in Gaffney, SC before it was "relocated" to Charlotte in a controversial move that still angers SC listeners to this day. And WSOC/WAXN has a translator from Crowder's Mtn. for 9 and 64.
