Noise is a good possibility; here's another:
Not sure about LA, but when I lived in the Bay Area, it was
a pretty common experience to copy both WWV and WWVH at about the
same strength (here usually one of the two is very dominant.)
It's possible that isn't helping any, and you're better off
with less antenna than more.
