Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That's interesting. That may be a matter of local signal reflection, wave interference, or shielding by a metal structure.

Shielding by a metal structure would have to be shielding from the (presumably) satellite signal, or at least one satellite signal. If there's a large metal-lattice structure, or steel-fame building nearby, it may be in the way of one satellite.
