I have scanned and gotten all the channels I want. One of them is a bit flaky in reception.
If I re-point my antenna, is it best to rescan again in order to get a better signal for that channel?
Hmmmm

MAYBE, but you shouldn't have to, if it's already scanned in, even if it's a little weak. IF you only have one antenna, it's typically best to aim more towards your weakest station, and hope the other stronger ones still come in. Try to find the best compromise azimuth as you can. Sometimes just raising the antenna 5-10 feet or more might make all the difference.
