I checked the voltage along the coax, section by section...found a stretch of cable and connector that looked like they'd gone bad. Replaced them and I've got signal!

Performance of the Kitztech unit is clearly stronger than the old RCA, and longevity would surely be much superior even if they were both new; I'll enjoy having it whether or not the RCA has actually completely died as I had thought.

Will go back up one of the next two Saturdays to do some more weatherproofing (rubber boots for connections if I can find some online, and more electrical tape and duct tape lots of places), and replace a couple more bits of cable and connectors that are older and/or longer than they need to be. With luck, I'll then be set for at least another 5 years.

Thanks again for the helpful advice here.
