TV Antennas and Reception

As you can see the channels in green are all strong and are all line of sight , a excelent reception situation. . Yes you can turn and move the antenna for better reception. Look in the connectors of the RG-6 quad shield , the common problem is the foil shields and shield wires are pushed in toward the center conductor that carries the signal this 'shorts out' the signal , reducing reception. Push the foil shied and shield wires away from the center conductor. Looking at the coax to matching transformer antenna connection , is it corroded ?? Also do not assume the matching transformer is good. Replace it with a good quality outdoor matching transformer. Are there any large obstructions near by that can be interfering with reception??
