I'm wondering if the TV picked up & re-mapped one of the weaker UHF translators when you re-scanned? I would try disconnecting the UHF antenna & then try rescanning to see if it sees RF 8.

Does...

FM trap will work the same either way. You probably don't even need one, but won't hurt.

No need for quad shield cable either. Really only needed for cable TV applications where egress is a...

Simply put, you should never overtighten guy wires to the point where there is absolutely no movement. This has been my understanding & what I have always done. Turnbuckles made it super easy to dial...

I would think wires will let the antenna system "breathe" better than a rod would allow. The mast still needs to move slightly in the wind.

Keep the mast above the rotor as short as possible. I suggest no more than 1-1.5 feet total.

Antenna selection is fine.

Are all channels affected? What amp are you using? How often do you experience dropouts & how long do they last?

Bouncing signal strengths are usually an indication...

4 feet if possible, although at 1 foot separation I haven't noticed any signal degredation between the 91XG/YA-1713. YMMV

I would give the attic a try, but keep the fingers crossed tightly, especially for channel 13. Unfortunately their highly directional signal is pointed away from you, so even outside it would be...

The 2 antennas seem a bit close & may be interfering with each other.

You certainly don't need more amplification. What you do need is more signal AT the antenna.

How close are your antennas to each other? Can you take a pic & post it?

Powerline interference is usually worst during dry weather (low humidity) from my experience. As humidity rises the interference tends to lessen, especially when raining.

Antennacraft is no longer in business. They DID make SOME good antennas. The Y10-7-13 is/was my favorite of the bunch.

My 2 cents. . . . . . Do you ever see or hear any aircraft when outside? Anything below 2000-3000 feet can potentionally cause the kinds of signal interruptions you are describing.

Are any of the boxes Zeniths?

Could be FM, or just the difference in where the antennas are mounted. Once you try the HLSJ(s) we will know better as they will eliminate any FM concerns.

Maybe / maybe not. I have successfully used one with a +8.3 db FM station .25 miles away (90.9) I would certainly try it first.
