The last week or so, I’ve been experiencing complete HD dropouts on KXJM.
Normally when I get into spots of multipath, I’ll briefly lose the HD lock for a couple seconds at a time (going to no audio when I’m tuned to Too Wild on HD2), but the last week I’ve been experiencing complete dropouts where my radio will cut over to the analog signal after a second or two (and in locations where I don’t usually have multipath dropouts). From there it takes about 15-20 seconds for the HD to come back up and then I can tune back to the HD2 signal.
It happened this morning at about 6:33 AM during the traffic report on Too Wild. Anyone else noticing any strange issues?
I have had it on since I read your post and it hasn’t missed a beat…beat…beat…beat.
Signal strength appears to be about the same as I recorded about 5 months ago on the tiny S-meter under the Dx cat’s paw.

Wet trees? Corroded antenna ground? New reflection paths?
