  1. 1

    Move your antenna to a different location. There are variables within a home that can affect reception. Experiment with placing your antenna in different spots to find the area with the best reception.

  2. 2

    Mount your antenna high. The higher the antenna is displayed, the better reception it will receive.

  3. 3

    Refer to the owner's manual to ensure that the antenna is assembled and connected correctly.

  4. 4

    Inspect the antenna's wires for loose connections or corrosion. Either can weaken the signal's transfer from your antenna to your TV or radio. Replacing or tightening the wires can improve the reception received.
