I should note though that the weather has changed, and that it may rain at any time.

I can tune into all the channels. I don't get any square blocks or anything during normal weather.

I take that based on that, the antenna should be re-aligned?

Thanks for all the help.

I would suggest that you should consider making sure (but in good weather conditions) that the antenna alignment, especially the skew angle is optimum

I have tried to increase the signal quality with the help of an installer, but it didn't work much. I was not able to get a signal quality better than 90%. I will let you know via this thread whether there are any improvements.

Thanks for the help.
