Missing One Channel

My signal analysis is here:

All my stations are between 165 and 180 degrees. I get everything perfect with the exception of WVEC, which is our ABC affiliate. It comes and goes so often that it is difficult to watch. It keeps pixelating and pausing and then it comes back. WVEC is the only station that I am having issues with.

I have a clear stream 2v antenna ( mounted above the chimney on a ranch style home. It is pointed to 175 degrees. I do have a lot of trees in the neighborhood, but all the other stations are coming in great. I am wondering if a different type of antenna would be better for me. Any help would be appreciated.

Multiple possibilities:

1. Unfortunate antenna location (dead spot or reflection that affects that particular channel only). Move the antenna and retest.

2. Interference from localized electrical noise, very common on VHF frequencies. Move antenna and retest.

If you're effectively married to that spot on the chimney, you'll probably have to experiment with a larger antenna that has more directivity on channel 13.
