Yes, the atmosphere can affect reception. In some situations, it will block certain radio signals and other times it will carry them, which is called skip.

It seems to me that on warm, summer nights, I get really good VHF-Hi, UHF reception.

Hi Hemi and all,

How does the weather affect WHAT reception? The radio spectrum is huge and weather affects parts of it quite differently as do seasonal changes and solar activity. Such a vague question opens up a library of answers, a real can of worms, so as always I say ask a specific question for more specific answers.

Already they're way out in left field as you can see, "skip" is in no way related to the "crappy reception" you asked about. Perhaps you should rephrase the question and tell us what you mean by "crappy" to begin with.
