Will angling an antenna upward improve reception?:confused:

Currently I live in an apartment in Kansas City and I've been using a CM 4228 (older model not new HD) mounted a couple of feet off the floor facing a sliding glass door. I have found that some signals will improve if I do tilt the antenna forward about 45 degrees. I lean the antenna against the sliding glass door to accomplish this. I am guessing that it cuts down on the multipath that affects most of the signals I watch.

My guess is that each environment is a bit different and in some cases tilting the antenna will work and in others it will not. Also, it probably depends upon the kind of antenna you are using as well.
