Look at others in your area. Did they drop off two? Weather can impact flights. I see a pretty good drop off on days when the weather is bad. Less training and tourist flights. VFR only pilots not flying etc.
Water or ice in the feed line (coax) especially the connectors. We saw this happen at a location in the North East last year. If the antenna is outdoor, then ensure that dialectric grease is used on the inside and self-sealing tape on the outside.
TV or other electrical device interfering with the device. I have one setup behind a TV in our bedroom. When the TV is on, I lose about 20-30% of the traffic.
Remember the old adage for fault find "Something was changed or broke".

I was wondering the same thing - my stats on here were down somewhat in the last couple of days, but seem to be OK today.
I have the issue of a partial obstruction to the south of my location but also my reception is very dependant on local weather conditions and how that affects aircraft in and out of Sydney airport - for example whether they are taking off and landing north to south or vice versa.
My only suggestion is to give it a few days and see if it comes good.
