No I didn't remove the reflector.

@adtech could you show me what the break difference would be if I stayed the db4e sideways?

I don't know. I'm aimed at about 10 degrees and attached are the channels I get. This antenna had a pretty wide pattern. I thought about getting a db8e and offset the panels but, it's a bit large.

Channel 23 (real)

No dog fences or anything right around me.

Signal glitch every 18ish seconds on one channel.

I find it hard to believe that it's a signal problem when like clock work it's 18 seconds. Aiming the antenna doesn't fix it.

Thoughts?

I live in Saco and use a DB4e antenna on my roof at 25AGL. I'm able to get everything in the area. I would aim around true north.

Is there any reason why one couldn't just install a new ground rod near the antenna location? I would think that having that line run into the house would be a mistake.

rabbit73 brings up a good point!

ABC and NBC are only 2 degrees apart according to your TVFOOL report. I also think elevation is a key player here and that tree I saw in the photo.

I agree that it was premature as I didn't notice the inaccurate note on the report but I don't agree that his response towards me helps the thread. If anything it just creates animosity.
