E-Log interefering with Digital Antenna?

We live on the main road through town and frequently lose tv signal to our powered antenna (interior). We've noticed that it seems to happen when a big truck goes by, No Signal, then varying recovery - moments to minutes before signal return. Can E-Logs knock out our antenna?
 
E-logs seem to be GPS and cell phone related which I doubt would interfere with the antenna.
The truck would be more likely to physically block the signal from the transmitter. An antenna with more gain might help but there is no way to know but try it.
Getting the antenna above the truck is more likely to work though. If the problem is cable length you can use a coupler to attach a longer cable to the existing one.

Sure, your antenna could be effected by EMI/RFI from the passing trucks. They could also be blocking line of site on an already weak signal, causing a drop in reception.

Do you have the option to raise your antenna more?

We are south of the transmitting towers, the antenna is at full stretch as high and as north as we can get it. The trucks are running 60 feet to the east of the antenna. We don't usually have signal issues, otw.
Since we are as far south as we are, we opted for the powered digital antenna - just didn't anticipate traffic not in path causing issues... :/
