Norfolk, VA Antenna Help Needed
I’ve been having fits with my antenna reception. I live in Southeastern VA, 20-22 miles from my tv stations, which are all within 4 degrees of one another. It’s flat here, and I have my antenna in the attic of my 2-story house. We’d been getting good reception for months with an antenna like the one pictured (channel master metrotenna), and an amplifier at the tv. Recently it started to consistently suffer, so I went and bought a yagi-type antenna, and that did great for a few months. Now, however, neither antenna will get all of the channels we used to get. This has been consistent over a few weeks, and not just a bad-weather thing. I’ve been messing around with them and about at my wits end. My next thought is to mount both of the antennas with a splitter/combiner. Any other suggestions? Preamplifier?
Any idea why the signal seems to degrade over time?
Thanks very much for any help,
