Well thats not supposed to happen. Leaky microwave ? or leaky antenna system ?
RFI ......... temporary but not 24 hours ..... no
Too many gadgets........ filters, splitters, amplifiers, wireless links, etc..... Can be the weak link to the problem.
At the antenna pole ...... every 30 to 40 inches up or down should be a sweet signal peak spot.
Highest quality balun is required.... or build one for channel 7
Any amp should be low gain 10db and low noise under 2db
Basic $ 1.99 splitters only. And thats for 5- 900 Mhz usually stamped on them or stamped VHF-UHF
So called gold plated "Digital splitters" have loss as high as 7db per port..... Yes Avoid "Digital splitters"
No wireless delivery. Cable to one tv only so you know what the normal signal levels are ...... (For about a month)
Sounds like a total equipment issue / equipment failure to me.
The microwave comment ..... shows problems.
Especially when the antenna is outdoors .... far away.
