Leave and Tree Interference

I was getting a couple of over the air stations with a small soffit mounted antenna. Now that the trees are full leafed out I am not longer getting a signal. Is this coincidence or is it due to the trees? Can I freely assume that a bigger antenna mounted about 15 feet high would restore my signal?
The water in the leaves does absorb some of the radio frequency signal, so it could be the cause of your problem if the station is in the direction of the trees.

The only way t know if a better antenna mounted higher will fix the problem is to actually install the antenna and connect it up.

Updating ATSC Standard Could Put an End to Manual Channel Rescans

Could this crack in my preamp plug be affecting my OTA signal?
