@ TV Fool

I'm not willing to call this a "good primer", just a quick attempt at some words on the subject:

Rapidly changing signal meter readings on most TV's is an indication (but not absolute proof) of multipath with one or more paths changing in length and or attenuation. Signal can bounce off of layers of the atmosphere, vehicles, foliage, etc., all of which can be in motion. The result will be that the signals from different paths combine at the receiving antenna, they may add - in phase - or subtract from one another - out of phase.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
