Loos of reception

3 weeks ago channel KLSR -DT in Eugene, Or
http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...3e479fd06c99b4

began breaking up as if it was a dirty DVD. NO change in Antenna location or orientation. All other channels are receiving fine.

Any suggestions welcomed.

Can you describe your antenna system?

Antenna make & model
Mounting location & height AGL
Aimed in what direction
Accessories such as amplifiers, splitters, switches, etc.
Coax type & length
Number of sets connected

Thanks

Thanks GUM,
Antenna is an RCA ANT1500 Multidirectional
approx 20ft from ground level
current positioning is perpeindicular to signal tower
runs through Tivo box (one) no splitter involved
coax, was existing, unknown of type run is maybe 35 ft.
single TV

note: a test of positioning the antenna at 10ft off ground using 6ft coax shows the signal to remain the same. All Stations excepting KLSR are good.

Before making any changes of the antenna I suggest call KLSR , talk with engineering department and see if something has happened with the transmission.
