Antenna quit picking up signals

I've been using a Mofu Leaf Ultimate since Jan 2013. It scanned 12 available channels. Several days ago, I could only get 2, channel 36 (CBS) and Fox. A day or 2 later, I could only get 1. I've tried rescanning.

My tv's in the same place. I've moved the antenna around to several locations but nothing.

We have had heavy rains recently, not sure if that matters but would like to get my channels back.

I do have the analysis report for my area. and the channels I was getting were all listed in the green circles. ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX plus some Ky educational channels as well, which aren't as important to me. The other four are.

Analysis attached.

Any help is very much appreciated.

It sounds as if the amplifier built into the antenna has lost power or has failed. The least expensive test I can think of is to get an inexpensive non-amplified antenna to test with.

My suggestion would be the Terk HDTVi (not the HDTVa).
