Hello, Ken

That sounds like intermittent electrical interference. The antenna must be near the source.

I have radiant barrier to the left and right (on the slopes of the roof). If I go up higher, do you think that the reception will be worse due to the narrower wall in front of the antenna, with the barrier being on either side?
It's difficult to predict. If there is no metal in front of the antenna to block the signal, it might improve the reception.
