I was able to receive WTAE until a couple weeks ago.

Now it's very pixelated and is watchable very infrequently.
WTAE is listed as a Tropo channel. Atmospheric changes will affect the signal.

I'm an old fart so I need my son to climb for me.
I know what that feels like; I'm 87.

Like to get WTAE because that's where the best college football games are
WTAE will always be difficult for you because there is a hill in the signal path. You would need an expensive tower to get your antenna high enough.

Your location is in a dead zone (no color).
