Okay, I’ve been doing this for a year now and am, for the most part, satisfied with what I am getting, but I could use some help with fixing signal issues with a few (three) stations (one is VHF).
I’m in a small dip, about 100’ below the hill. I get most stations well all the time, how do I figure out what is causing the other three stations from coming in all the time? I get them well in the morning and over night, but during the daytime they go anywhere from breaking up to too weak to receive. I’m not sure if I should try raising the antenna, getting a stronger antenna (current is Antop Big Boy), adding an amplifier, or if it is directional. The antenna is on the chimney, so going back-and-forth to make small (whatever that means) changes is more than a bit of a pain. I’ve seen signal meters on eBay and Amazon, but that’s an overall strength and not granular, for that matter I’m not sure if they’re really any good ($25?). Any help here?
