Odd Issue - NBC

Hey folks, first post on this site. I have an issue pulling in local ch 8.1, NBC. I live in the New Port Richey/Trinity, Florida area, North West of Tampa.

I have the ANTOP UHF-262 yagi antenna mounted on a mast above the house. I believe it is greater than 20-25 feet, if I have to guess. Below the antenna I have the channel master cm-7777. I am also using the Channel Master DVR+. I roughly have the antenna pointing to about 120 degrees. When I first erected this, I scanned and pulled in 58 channels. I believe I had the antenna pointing roughly 140 degrees. I pulled in NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC and about 54 other channels. CBS was fairly weak hence changing the antenna heading 20 degrees. CBS is quite strong however, the odd issue I am having is at first I had NBC and now I cant pull it in. From the report NBC and FOX are nearly the same heading about 2 degrees apart.

Ive had other antennas and just could not get FOX and CBS and only pulled 26 channels on a good day. I am just looking for some advice on how I might be able to pull in NBC. I feel like this setup is working better than my wineguard ms2002.

Your antenna is a UHF-only design.

See if you can return it for the version that includes the VHF elements. It, at least, will give you a chance.

I thought that may have been the case but I wasn't sure since some other info I had looked at may have had misleading info. Ive had this antenna for over a year, its only been mounted outside for a week now.

I had my eye on this: https://www.parts-express.com/antop-...tenna--210-512
