    Using a low-loss cable might improve things - not cheap though and you would need to consider the effort required to install it.

    Well, antenna quality, of course, is a factor. If you're getting weak signal, or multipath problems, you might benefit from a more highly directional antenna. That can be problematic, though, if you're receiving signals from stations in multiple directions.

    On this point: in my experience, there's no substitute for a large, hefty, multi-element array antenna. Right now it seems there are a lot of antennae on the market with built-in amplifiers, designed for low-profile installation, and that sort of thing--I have never found any of those to work particularly well. Much as we'd like, it's hard to defeat the laws of physics...
