Replacing Old Antenna

I'm starting to lose channels slowly and was wondering if it could be the antenna. It's 9 years old. Looking for a replacement. https://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_w...b0febba265de5c

It could be the antenna if you have missing or broken elements or corrosion. But it is more likely to be:
  1. Coax connectors
  2. Grounding block
  3. Coax cable
  4. Balun

Slow loss of channels over time indicates corrosion of the connections or the balun.

Which does not rule out the antenna, it has connections too.
