Some of you may be experiencing interference or poor signal quality especially in the early morning or late evening. This is happening because of something called “skip”. Skip is a result of changes in the upper atmosphere called temperature inversions. This occurs when the air is hot and humid, or “thick.” The smoke from out west and coming in from Canada may also be playing a part. What happens is that signals from broadcasters a long way from us get bounced around or skip between the ground and the upper atmosphere. Those errant signals cause local interference. As a result you may have difficulty receiving channels you usually do not have a problem with and sometimes you may pick up channels you don’t usually get. Once the air thins out this problem should disappear.
