I don't know if it's weather related, but my problems with KTVU seem to have been introduced just this week
I am pretty sure my problems 2 decades ago was with an old analog tuner... I don't think I was "digital" back then...
For the most part, ... you can't compare reception problems 2 decades ago, ... with today.
A lot of stations have moved transmitter locations since then. Think channels 8, 11
, 14, 60, 50, etc. ..... And some homes still have "Stacked" antennas used for that problem. Decades ago.
Plus todays digital stations are using lower
wattages .... You can't compare.
Like comparing a 1980s car .... to a 2017 with touch screen and voice demands, etc.
As far as the little indoor Muho Leaf 50, that works indoors.
It should work .>>...that is until you start walking around the room creating multipath & signal break ups.
Heatwave ? KTVU coming in & out ?
Something as simple as a box fan can create indoor multipath & problems.
When you have something so small, that barely works. There is no wiggle room for problems. And that will soon drive you crazy. (Think tin foil on rabbit ears
If you oversize the antenna, ... expect cable company reliability.
Unless you have a battery portable tv for camp outs, sporting tailgates, etc, .... that you can use the Muhu Leaf antenna for..... I'd junk it.
