Rooftop TV Antenna problem
Living in the Stone Age as I still am, I have a 25-inch Sony CRT TV with no cable, but a rooftop antenna which up until now, brought in stations just fine. One night, stations 2,4,7 & 9 refused to come in -- just lots of snow. The UHF stations came in just fine.
When I put on my VCR and use it as an antenna, the VHF stations come in perfectly as before, so I'm guessing the problem is with my rooftop antenna, not the TV set. I checked all the connections at the inside rotor control and to the outside and everything is connected as it should. The rotor has the antenna turning as it should also.
I"m guessing that perhaps a wire or something from the actual VHF antenna arms itself may have come loose or worse, broken. Sound plausible? I checked with binoculars but couldn't see anything. It's 20 degrees out and my roof is covered with ice. Could it possibly be anything else or do I have to wait for warmer days to go up there and see if it's a broken wire? Suggestions? Thanks.
