Yeah, an outdoor antenna isn't an option right now.
Even if the guy who owns this place allows me to put something outside (and he well might), I'm not willing to pay for one.
I get nearly rock solid reception of the major CLE market stations except for WOIO's main RF 10, and down here I get that with ease via the RF 24 repeater. Even WJW is trouble-free at this location. (Of course, WMFD/68 is missing this far north, to be expected.)
Since I posted, WKBN cleared up that morning, and aside from a dropout or two occasionally, has been pretty good. Since I'm mostly just curious, and don't NEED WKBN/WYFX, I'm OK with it.
I doubt it's Detroit coming in. I've never gotten Detroit on an indoor antenna even with the best of skip conditions (including one day where Detroit/Windsor/Toledo stations were overwhelming my car radio!). I don't think they're putting enough of a signal here even to disrupt locals.
