KH is fine here on the south side of the water. Check your aerial and coax and connectors for damage. Our recent high winds and rain might have moved or damaged your installation. My chimney log came down last week, but I was able to re-fix it temporarily with a ratchet strap - and will do a proper job when the weather is friendlier!
