How big of a problem is this?


The Graveyard Shift
One or two birds shouldnt unless its already marginal.

Vertically polarised yagi antennas dont have this problem. And in any case, its nothing that $1 of cable ties couldnt fix.
If people moving around can affect an indoor antenna, a dozen birds GOTS to do sompin.

I had to check to make sure they weren't the same antenna. Was afraid the cat ate the birdies ... :evil:

"This was taken in Long Stratton, Norfolk, England. This cat had almost lost one of her 7 lives, when fell from the top of the building, but fortunately got caught by the TV antennas, that seemed intriguingly embracing her. She was there meowing for 3 hours before the neighbours were able to rescue her".
