After the Denver area switched to the digital signal we

After the Denver area switched to the digital signal we bought a new LG model RC897T DVD Recorder/VCR and a new LG model 32LK330-UB LCD TV and a new antenna from Radio Shack, the next to the most high-capacity one they sell, and new coax all around - not the el-cheapo ones, but the better quality ones. We aligned the antenna according to the on-line chart of where you bare VS where the transmitter is and sat back to enjoy. Everything works great except channel 4. Terrific picture and sound all around, but channel 4 freezes and pixelates often (like every time they snapped the ball during the Super Bowl) and stays gone for three to five seconds. At that time the signal strength goes from about 70% (as good as it gets) down to about 30% and sometimes to zero. The other channels live around 80% all the time, even the ones that live way up the dial. Denver has a big fancy mast on Lookout Mountain that is shared by a half-dozen stations and channel 4 is one of them. I installed a signal amplifier in the line even though the Radio Shack guy said I shouldn't need it and it makes very little difference regardless of where it is set on its gain control. There are no tall buildings between here and there, there is no bus that goes by, and there is no other signal being transmitted in my area that would interfere. I am out of ideas and my wife is driving me nuts about it. What can you do for me?
