OTA reception.

Have used OTA in previous camp sites. Did usual channel search. Came up with 5. 1st night no reception. Next morn, clear channels. That night, zero on main tv, but bedroom had 1 clear station? Understand location and weather have input in reception but why bedroom so clear??

Yes, what Bob said..

Check all connectors on the antenna system. Even the connections at the splitter that splits The antenna signal to the different TVs. Might be hidden somewhere. Make sure that they are tight. Check especially the connections at the antenna that are out in the weather, and if the wiring up there is old, make sure that the wire has not dry rotted from weather and sun damage. Sometimes it will crack and allow water in.


Ps; greetings for a fellow Long islander!

Different brand/model TVs? Not all off-air tuners are created equal.
