Besides, I get multipath when someone stands near the antenna or in 
just the wrong place in the room and used to get it in my apartment if 
there was a car waiting outside beneath the line between my antenna and 
the stations.  And it's likely that I was seeing some form of multipath 
from terrain because the best reception for WRAL and for WRAZ were 
often acquired at slightly different directions, and both of those 
broadcast antennas are on the same tower.  (I live in the suburbs of 
Raleigh, significantly away from downtown).  It hasn't been a 
difficulty since WRAZ moved up to regular strength, but when they were 
only at test broadcast strength, it made it tough.  Multipath may not 
be as big a deal if you've got a nice rooftop antenna, but it shows up 
a lot when you've only got an indoor antenna, even if it's a 
directional one.
