      Hmm. good point.
      But what then would be my best option?
      Don't have much to spend on a beam antenna.
      What would be a better way to fix this issue?

      As multipath interference involves two signals that are mutually
      interfering, adding attenuation would not only reduce the strength of
      the second signal, but the first as well, so the interference would
      still be there in theory.
