Signal Quality Level & Fluctuation

Post by NOYB »

Recently KGW (NBC VHF 8) changed to UHF 26. Signal strength meter is solid 100%. So actual SS is probably well above that.
However the SQ fluctuates rapidly between 75% and 85%. Occasionally dipping to 70%, and reaching up into the 90's%.

KATU (ABC UHF 24) has SS and SQ in the mid 90's% and is pretty steady.
KOIN (CBS UHF 25) has SS and SQ in the upper 90's% and is pretty steady.

All these transmitters are in the same area 90 degrees true north (east) less than 20 miles.

Wondering why KGW signal quality is so much poorer and fluctuating so much.
