VP2/Vue wireless 'channels' are just different time delays on the same set of frequencies. The only time that changing channels helps (other than by coincidence) is if you have another Davis station within range broadcasting on the same channel.

First step in trying to troubleshoot reception issues is to look at the average RSSI value for that transmitter. See the top right parameter (4) in the second wireless diagnostic screen - https://www.manula.com/manuals/pws/davi ... monitoring might help.
