To all concerned,sometimes it has been found that the strongest signals from any transmitter have been
found at ground level espically hilly areas or places below the radio horizon,if you can't get steady reception
on the roof,try searching around,it has worked.Radio waves are so unpredicable,they do the strangest things
at times.
