    Re: TV SIGNAL BOOSTER

    If you're suffering from a very weak TV signal and you have already replaced your aerial then your only chance is a TV signal booster ..
    These divices can be connected to one or more TV's in the house ..
    Boosters are especially useful with poor signals on Digital TV ..

    Here are examples:

    Re: TV SIGNAL BOOSTER

    TV signals comes in from the antenna in microvolts size and a booster is an rf amplifier with some DB gain and inpedance matching capabilities. sometimes even in good area of TV signal there is a problem the wire lenght lead in must be cut to a certain wave lenght to provide max signal. people don't pay attention to that but they should. a 50 ohm cable at some freq and lenght the signal is actualy a short.

    Re: TV SIGNAL BOOSTER

    HI DEAR,


    You would probably need a SIGNAL BOOSTER amplifier if you have three or four splits (three or four TV's) connected to the incoming cable or output of your Satellite receiver.

    If you have a home antenna and need to improve signal strength of your off air signals. TV picture quality of distant channels will be "snowy" or granular. A SIGNAL BOOSTER amplifier placed at the antenna output can improve picture quality decreasing granularity and making distant channels viewable.

    First always recheck cable connections. The SIGNAL BOOSTER has a patented fitting at all its inputs and outputs. This fitting clamps onto the center conductor of the cable with a good quality (recommended) cable fitting. Note you can push on the protruding plastic and the metal inside the fitting closes or clamps onto the center conductor. Some of the lower quality fittings do not have enough metal at the back end to exert force on this plastic mechanism
