are available in 1, 2, 4 & 8 output versions. If you
using one to run numerous TV's, use a unit with the appropriate number
of inputs. But, if you are using one to try and improve a
signal, then go with the single output unit, and place it as close to
the antenna as possible. For this, we like the Channel Master
CM-3410 as it is weather-proof. If placed ourtdoors, near your antenna, be sure to securely
connections with electrical tape to keep moisture out.
Whichever brand you choose, you want between 10 & 15 dB of gain. (Remember, the more outputs,
the lower the gain to each one.) Still, nothing is
guaranteed. No amplifier can boost a signal that is simply not there.
the time of writing, the CM-3410 was available from Amazon.ca, for $39
including shipping. There are, of course, other sources -
nearly all are on-line.
