    It's possible. Maybe there's something in the construction of your house zapping the signal...

    I'm with j. It's worth a shot but it sounds like your house is in a dead spot. But it never hurts to try

    It might be worth checking into an after market signal booster/antenna. I have seen some in the past that seemed pretty good, kinda pricey but seemed to be rated fairly well. Just a thought anyway
