    CM4228 Pre-amped

    It's best to go w/the largest antenna you can handle and then add a pre-amp if you need to.

    Got my antenna upgrade yesterday...(sigh)

    See if they will swap out the OTA rcvr, may/may not help.

    OTA Antenna HELP!

    My vote is for the silver sensor, unless you can get the SS to point at the station on an outside wall.

    TIP: How to increase the voltage to the OTA antenna

    Antenna Booster

    Actually the squareshooter may work well for you. We need to know if your OTA's are UHF or VHF or both.

    OTA and Diplexer?

    if your that low on a clear day then removing the diplexer MAY help on perfect days, but you'll probably crap out in any kind of atmospheric disturbance.

    Voom Installer Here NOW - Quick Question!!

    I'm going back and running 2 lines myself. My installer didn't ground anything and shot staples through the cable jacket. I want double shielded RG6 anyway. I can't expect them to supply that.
