Stronger Signal with Lower Height?

Report was run with 20' and then 30' heights. Channels in question like WFLD (Chicago) actually report lower power/nm when going higher, what's up with that?

Sometimes broadcast waves tend to run closer to the ground. That isn't
usually the case but it does happen. I do not know why. The TV Fool
report I use as a "guide" and not a rigid tool. What is most important
is what works best for you! The only way to determine that is to "walk
the roof," with mast and antenna in hand and have another at the TV
to see what works and what does not. A signal meter on most TV's
is always a good guide...... A few feet in any direction or a few feet higher or lower can make all the difference!
