    Default why does the signal pixelate on windy days

    On good weather days I have great reception with digital strength into the 90's, but when the wind blows knocks the signal way down and starts pixelating and losing the picture. I have a DB8 antenna in the attic. We are approximately 27 miles from towers. Would like to know how to correct this problem.

    Larry, are you located near trees or some other type of object that could possibly cause signal deflection?

    I have 2 trees in the front yard but they are not really in the way. What else other than trees could be causing it and what if anything can be done if it is trees?

    it is probally either a low signal strength or it could be multipath or to high of a signal how far are you from the transmitters andwhat kind of antenna do you use give us your zip code and we can look at your tvfool results to see what is going on.
