Thanks to all in the past for help with reception issues. It seems to be much improved after complete rewiring, new weather boots, aiming, getting it up, etc.1) It seems at night my reception "quality" (according to new tv with what seems to be a better tuner) shows, but it shows QUALITY, not a particular strength. But I tend to get slight pixelation more at night. I do have a new preamp attatched as well. Without it, signal is not usable. Is it overamping due to my reception getting better at night? I know there are multiple factors including humidity, atmosphere (can receive reliably CW 30 from Knoxville all night..weird) Most signals are approx 35mi away by air...obviously terrain doesn't help but it is much improved. Total wiring about 50-75ft, no splitters and no couplers. Even put electrical tape around boots to seal. 2) How close does lightning have to be to cause pixelation? Obviously the more intense, it seems the farther it can be as the atmosphere is "charged and primed.." like tonight. Signal quality is 92 but some pixelation. Thanks to all.
