Product Description

An outdoor passive TV antenna with a signal booster will detect and strengthen the signal received by non-amplified outdoor antennas. If you receive low-strength, fuzzy, or pixelated channels, your amplifier will fix them - and in some cases, the number of channels you get will change depending on your distance from the tower.
DESIGN THAT IS WEATHER PROTECTING - Durable material is built to withstand harsh weather conditions and install in the most suitable location to minimize interference from walls and other building materials. An amplifier such as this can be mounted on a mast, a wall, or even
QUICK AND EASY INSTALLATION - Included is a power inserter, a power supply, zip ties (4), rubber boot (2), and a user manual that is easy to read.
Please note that using an amplifier does not guarantee that you will receive additional TV channels, but it will strengthen the signal of the channels you already receive. Your reception quality and the number of channels you receive will vary with distance from the broadcast towers and antenna position, as well as obstacles such as hills, buildings,
Backed by a lifetime guarantee and free U.S. shipping, our support is based on the latest technology. To assist with any other questions or concerns, we provide US-based technical support Monday through Friday, 7 am to 8 pm, Central Time.

Questions & Answers

Can the antenna amplifier be used with any outdoor antenna, not just those made by GE? Where is the splitter located in the basement, is it possible to locate the antenna amplifier there?

My question to you is thanks for your input, RanJay. The amplifier we offer is compatible with multiple antenna brands that use RG6 F-type cable This is a coax cable type. Both indoor and outdoor mounting options are available for the antenna. Please do not hesitate to respond or to call between 7 and 11 a.m. if you have any further questions.

Measurement of this item what are the dimensions?

The dimensions are 20" long by 9" wide. Two and a half" x three inches. The height of the display is 6"

Signal quality during severe weather, such as heavy snow, how is it?

The snow has no effect and the stereo FM station 65 miles away is often staticky for a very short period of time depending on atmospheric conditions. It will be eliminated if you turn off the stereo.

Do you think this will work with two-meter and 70-centimeter HAM radio yagis?

We designed this antenna to work over the air In the This is not HAM radio, it is air television. For your application, we recommend an antenna specifically designed for it.

It is the most advanced preamplifier on the market
5/5

During the last few years, I have owned and used the majority of amplifiers on the market LNA for Winegard The RCA TVPRAMP1Z, Channel Master Titan and an old Archer with adjustable gain are among the equipment I use. There was also a selectable FM tuner available for some of them The trap awaits. Having an engineering degree There are two components to signal quality signal level (strength). The following equipment is used at my location (different amplifiers mentioned previously) Neither signal level nor volume was an issue for me. The problem is the random signal quality drops I experience on a few channels (UHF 38, 39, In case you don't This is referred to as "pixelation" or "dropped audio/video. ". In order to test all variables, I used every option There are different amplifiers with different gains, positions, and amplification methods. There was no help for quality drops of this kind. On my tuner, there are separate bars for the quality and level of the signal. At a perfect 100% for both It suddenly looks like there are problems with the Once you have a perfect signal for a while, you return to it. I had them in all kinds of weather, so it has nothing to do with the A GE amplifier was switched to as a first step. This is a really cool product The cost of some of them is almost three times greater). Jasco is a Taiwanese company that makes the product for GE. Look at their website and you will find that they manufacture high quality electronic accessories for companies like It is interesting There is no numerical technical information available for the There is only a mention of "Low-" An improvement in signal quality is achieved by amplification of noise As a result, I would certainly agree that there is a "noise ratio. ". There is no doubt that it is the best performance yet Amplifiers like the one above have a lower price. There is a good build quality (design, AC adapter, signal injector, and even the boots to cover the RG6 connectors are included, instructions included, etc. ). There is nothing like this on the market yet Since it will only be available in May, there are no details at this time. It's so sad that Amazon is mixing the reviews of all different GE products together at this price point.
At this price level, this amplifier is likely to rise rapidly to segment leadership. The review count on Amazon for this amplifier is 593. It turns out there are only a few reviews of this product when you sort them all. My quest to be the winner on that signal quality drop It was difficult to find the right filter. It's not a signal but a filter that detects 4G/LTE (by thinking nearby cell towers might interfere) Not even a shred of help. The FM- station did not work for me This filter traps particles Unfortunately, nothing could be done to If you are going to fight all possible sources of interference My mind wandered to the possibility of VHF-communications Do you know that there is a UHF band-pass filter? As it turned out, it did The item was actually purchased from the other "bay" web site for a lower price. It came A couple of things it does are The only frequencies it passes are VHF and UHF In addition to UHF frequencies (which helps you get around your local HAM radio transmitters), it works on HF frequencies as well. As a result, the signal quality improved. Even so, I do experience milder drops every now and then. The 5G network comes into play when we switch As a result of interference, OTA TV signals are likely to be less reliable during the summer.

I've finally found a working antenna
5/5

The 10 star rating is incorrect. It should be 10. What a shock. A couple of hours ago, I received it. It has been 40 years since antennae were used. On a table in front of a window inside. On the initial scan, there were 38 channels that were good and clear with Rescanned 38 channels and 36 came up as good after a minimal move. The flat things I bought were 3 pieces. Using money for such a waste. For those three, I also paid the same amount as I did for This is such a wonderful present
that I am not going to put it outside. I don't see the need to do so. The attached photos show what it looks like inside and how it is being assembled. There is no way I can tell who gave it There is no such thing as a free lunch. My pick up will be 40 miles away in Toledo, then I'll drive to Lansing, MI. The distance between Detroit and Toledo is Were going to pay professionals to install it. It is likely that there are hundreds of them. It costs $37 to install an antenna. I am buying a new coax cable of A $10 bill. There are 00 minutes left. I guarantee you that you will not regret buying this 4 hours hence. My jaw dropped when I saw how fast it picked I listen to music in the living room on the north side of my house. The top of the tower is about 8 feet high. I wonder how it was attached to the old outside antenna mount 28 feet up. I'm now 76 so I can't climb any more, so I'd have to keep it in the sitting During over 30 channels with no flickers, we finally have a clear picture pitcher. I really like this update because it is The frequency went from 13 to 15 after experimenting with moving it around. I created a new post for the mount using 1 inch conduit that stands 36 inches The number of channels reached 53. This is the case with most However, I need two det areas in my Det area to watch A wooden base was made. A 5 X 8 shape so I can turn it over and use it as a desk top. It is not uncommon for me to scan two The attic or outdoors is a good place to use it. If you are going to use a broken antenna, make sure the thing is broken. I am certain it would have a significant difference in picking up if it were on the outside mast. The set will be in my living room and will pick up 43 to 44 channels avg. Since I am unable to climb, I will be watching it from there.

My home is 38 miles from the TV antenna farm at Mt
5/5

Wilson (Los Angeles). I previously installed one of these antennas on my roof. It worked well since the antenna is pointed at my house. It takes me 20 feet to run a cable from the antenna to a two-way remote There is first a two-way splitter and then a 30-foot run to a three-way splitter It is a three-way splitter, one of which has a 20-way splitter Three TVs are within 30 feet of each other. It is my expectation that I will need an amplifier just before the 3-day race There was not a split in the way. On each TV, I get 166 channels that are all sharp and clear with no dropouts. The one I ordered is to be installed on my friend's roof so he can have the same OTA service as I do!.

It worked great with my GE attic antenna and Fire recast set up
5/5

This was the particular solution that made my set up work. Having picked up the GE attic antenna, and using direct input into my TV, signal quality was good. I then picked up the new DVR, but started having weak signal issues on almost all channels. According to what I read, the recast seemed to have issues with amplified antenna signals, but this amplifier has good reviews, so I figured I'd take a gamble once it was available (because it may not always be available), and it appears to work smoothly. There is no need to run electricity from the antenna to an outlet It was straightforward to add to my setup, and I don't have to worry about constant weak signal notifications from my recast unit!.

There are 44 channels available! It seems to work well
5/5

It's been fun to watch the Yankees since Comcast took them off the air in 2016. I've been trying to find a way to upgrade from paying $250 a month for TV, Unlike other phones, the Ohone is used exclusively by telemarketers. In that case I will eliminate the television and phone and just upgrade to Internet only for $105 per To make up for that loss, I bought a TV in Tenna as a back-up, and I'm going to subscribe to internet TV streaming for an additional $50. A few minutes later, I had 44 channels on my antenna. There is an amplifier on the back of my TV that automatically turns on the major New York networks, except for ABC (I live about 65 miles south of New York city). 57 other channels are now available if I add an amplifier. There is no need to drill holes in Anenna since it is so It might be better to try a longer range antenna if you are too far away and very rural. For what I want to do, I was very happy with the performance!.
