I took off the juice preamp and everything is coming in better now. Even PBS is watchable now but it does have a 12ish% error rate with the sun out so I'll see what happened tonight.

I could try adjusting the backside lobe to line up with 246 degrees and the front side would end up at 16 degrees. Or do you think removing the reflector and adjusting the front side to 331 or 357?...

So I will likely lose maybe 2-3 db on the front end on each of the 4 patterns?

Also what do you think would happen if only one reflector was removed?

Removing DB4e reflector

How would removing the reflector change the gain? How would it look compared to the reception graph of the DB4e?

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)

2.7NM(db) I can move the db4e a good 15 degrees and have the same signal. 90% with signal quality in the 60's.

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.
