Just to get the obvious out of the way, you did install the low VHF extensions on the antenna, right?
Yes, I did install the VHF.
It seems that maybe I have enough signal (maybe even too much). I'm still trying to figure out what kinds of things could result in the parameters I am seeing (see the screen shot above)?

I tried making a folded dipole from the directions here:https://matthews.sites.wfu.edu/misc/dipole.html

I made a 2.5 meters, 1/2 wavelength dipole. Should have been tuned to Ch 2

Unfortunately, it didn't help. Good signal strength, but now very poor quality and poor symbol.
