Signal was enhanced, and it works well (as measured objectively)
Regardless of how powerful your amplifier is, you will not be able to gain access to all available channels at your location and antenna. Thus, I prefer to see objective and not purely subjective reviews that claim "no improvement" in reception and then conclude the amplifier must be defective. With that in mind, the review I wrote includes before and after HDHomeRun strength and quality measurements. The application I am using is called A .

The TV reception has been greatly improved
Approximately 60 miles east of Sarasota, I am located in the center of Florida. The reason I do what I do is based on a deep-seated issue The antenna is mounted on a 20-inch tube With a rotor attached at the foot, the mast stands 20 feet tall. I live in an area surrounded by trees that tower over 20 feet in height. While I lived in Jacksonville and Miami during the good old analog TV days, I could receive steady TV signals from those distances. The Tampa-area had over a dozen stations, but with the introduction of digital TV, the number fell to only six Local area of Sarasota. In addition, these channels were frequently intermittent and plagued by pixelation, out of sync, and related problems It was difficult to get certain stations to sync, etc. It also depended on the time of day and weather conditions. The Winegard LNA-G looked appealing at first, but then grew disinterested As I read the specifications for the LNA, I was greatly impressed It was about the same for 100. The LNA was installed without removing my antenna - it was a much preferable approach for me When I first heard about the LNA-200 I had to give it a try It has an indoor unit number of 100. It was a pleasure for me to do it. I am attaching a diagram of my system in the attached photo. Ensure that the LNA is compatible before purchasing it and installing it As a subscriber to channel 100, I could only receive six stations with their subchannels, for a total of twenty Once the LNA has been installed, After 100, the number of stations rose to 13 and the total number of channels rose to 45 when combined with their subchannels. I am able to receive several stations located in Fort Meyers for the first time. While intermittent reception and the tedious pixelation and erratic dropout have all been eliminated, the most noticeable improvement is the addition of seamless, real-time streaming. As of this writing, all I have seen is rock-oriented Receive all 45 channels without having to rotate my antenna a few degrees from one end to the other in order to keep reception for a particular Besides the superb gains in digital TV reception, I appreciate the fact the LNA-based digital TV receivers offer a range of additional benefits On the box it came in, and in Winegard's info about the unit, the 100 is made in the USA. The fact that the power supply is a USB adapter is also extremely convenient. When I measured the device's voltage output, it was in the standard range of 5 volts. The DC volts are 0 volts. The amplifier is located in a small plastic case, the top and bottom of which seem to snap together if the power supply should fail. If the power supply should fail, you might be able to replace it with any cheap USB adapter from Walmart, for example. Having never opened an amplifier, I cannot tell if there is any way to get inside, but if the top could be pried off, it might be possible for those with the necessary knowledge and tools to get inside to repair the circuit. If I were to pay just $32, I would instead just buy a new one. With my LNA, I can prevent a failure due to a spike in a power line In a surge protector, I plugged in a USB adapter that supports 100 watts.
Finally, my dislike of too much TV has been reduced considerably by the addition of this amplifier to my TV system In the You might be frustrated by trying to watch a television program in its entirety when you watch air digital TV.

The program does not act as it is supposed to
It didn't even boost signal strength a bit! MAKE SURE YOU DON'T WASTE I ordered this because we don't have access to channel 7 in Phoenix. It is my responsibility to design audio equipment that is dangerous. Originally purchased this 10dB video amplifier hoping it could fix a problem where I was unable to hear one channel. No, that is not acceptable. I would say a resounding It is easy to see how much signal strength I have on each channel on my Samsung TV. 10dB of boost should have some effect. However, this video amplifier had no effect. In order to strengthen the signal, set ZERO. The 23 dollars were a waste.
