    woi-tv channel 5.1 problem - help please

    I am having a problem receiving channel 5.1 with my over the air antenna. I can get channel 5.2 and I used to get 5.1. I'm only a few miles from ankeny so I know it is not a strength issue. I was wondering if they were having a problem.

    Thanks!

    Yep, TV reception over the air for HD is similar to the olden days of regular broadcasting - not so good. Snow on the ground, moisture, level of clouds in the air, etc all serve to affect the fringe houses.
