For what its worth I am downtown at 55 Public Square. Our office is somewhat high. I have both a hdtv amped indoor antenna connected to a vizio and a cheap kworld usb atsc tuner on a computer using the single telescoping antenna ear. I have the antenna pointed at the window and had it angled pointed straight out. Was getting 20 channels. All locals except WOIO. Most locals at full strength. While Trying to get more power from a Canton station I noticed it i have the antenna pointed straight down I receive a much higher strength. It is pointed at the magnetic radiator now and I get 28 or so channels on my KWorld including WOIO. Will rescan the Vizio now. Hope this info can help somebody. I am guessing it is now pointing more level to the antenna and the reflection issues of the radiator are now being used to help and not hinder reception.
