[chbot] TV aerial fitter

It might not be related to the cable. Wet weather makes any leaves and
branches damp and if these are between your aerial and the TV transmitter,
the absorption of the UHF signals increases and you can lose reception. A
higher gain aerial is one way of improving the situation. If you have
splitters in the house, a preamplifier ahead of the splitters can also
help. If your aerial system includes a VHF aerial and a VHF-UHF diplexer,
you may get some improvement by removing both the VHF aerial and the
diplexer, as there are no VHF transmissions any more.
Or you could grab a chainsaw...

Good luck
