That's easy to explain. As you're so close to the mast, and it's at high power, all the little electrons are flying past you too fast for your phone to grab hold of - thus no signal.
The further away from the mast, the slower the electrons and the easier it is for your phone to lock onto them.
kinda, but not quite...
an antenna has a propogation pattern that is determined by its shape and physical design. Its more likly that the frontal lobe of the antennea is missing your house because it is too close and the angle of propogation means that its in a dead spot.
The electrons dont get slower the further away from the base station, its just thats there is less of the signal ones mingling with all the others.
now if you meant your post tongue in cheek, then dont i look the donut!!!
