   If your antennas is new(er) and you still have poor reception problems ...

There is one more thing to try. An antenna signal booster.
These are available in 1, 2, 4 & 8 output versions.  If you are using one to run numerous TV's, use a unit with the  appropriate number of inputs.  But, if you are using one to try and improve a weak signal, then go with the single output unit, and place it as close to the antenna as possible.  For this, we like the Channel Master CM-3410 as it is weather-proof. If placed ourtdoors, near your antenna, be sure to securely wrap all connections with electrical tape to keep moisture out.

Whichever brand you choose, you want between 10 & 15 dB of gain. (Remember, the more outputs, the lower the gain to each one.) Still, nothing is guaranteed. No amplifier can boost a signal that is simply not there.

At the time of writing, the CM-3410 was available from, for $39 including shipping.  There are, of course, other sources - though nearly all are on-line.
