Out here in Spencer, MA I've been having problems with WBZ 4, as well as
all the WGBX transmitted signals including NBC Boston on 15.1 and 15.2.
It was fine right after the repack, but after the last several days it's
been really hit or miss if I have a watchable signal. Didn't know if it was
the humidity/wx conditions.
