Do you have an amplier between the antenna output and the receiver's
RF input? In areas where there are strong signals as well as weak
ones, amplifiers can overload, making reception (especially reception
of the weak signals) even worse. But it doesn't sound as if you have
any strong signals (except, maybe, "27") at your location, which ought
to make it a good candidate for an amplifier.
