          Comments about RadioShack® In-Line Signal Amplifier:

          I have bought this item in 2008 when TV signal was changed by the government. Free TV isn't so free. Had to buy converter box, this amp, and antenna. With out this item the signal isn't good. Even if you buy a really good antenna. I had an older tube style TV worked great on. Now I have a flat screen, Now I don't need the converter box and the amp still works great.

                caused all but one channel to drop out

                Best Uses

                  Comments about RadioShack® In-Line Signal Amplifier:

                  We got a digital television just before the broadcasters' switch to digital transmission and were so pleased with the picture quality and the number of previously unknown channels we received. As soon as the switch took place, we lost all those new channels, and have been limping along ever since with a no-name amplifier (no DC bypass switch) installed at the television end, ABC & NBC coming in reasonably well, CBS & PBS pixellating and freezing regularly. I had hoped that by adding amplification at the antenna end, we might correct that. I first tried taking out the no-name amplifier and installing this unit. All but CBS dropped out. I tried putting the no-name amplifier back in (next to the TV, with the power injector next) - no change. The "DC Bypass Switch" on the amplifier in the attic was set to OFF both times. I've given up for now and gone back to only the no-name amplifier at the TV end.
                  Here's my point about the documentation: It tells you nothing about the conditions under which you're supposed to set the DC Bypass to On or Off. You're supposed to somehow understand what that switch does and where it needs to be for your installation by looking at the pictures. You're also supposed to know whether you have an amplified or not-amplified ("passive") antenna. I am guessing you could tell by whether the antenna itself has power run to it by something other than the RG6 coax cable, (ours doesn't) but I'm not sure. It doesn't tell you.
                  The instructions do at least seem to be the same on the inside and the outside.
                  I may try again another day with the DC Bypass switch in the other position - but then why did one channel still work with it off? Some people can obviously make this unit work, but I don't seem to be one of them. Suggestions welcome.
                  If you're going to try this, remember to buy a piece of RG6 coax to go between the amplifier and the antenna - if the antenna is in the attic, you want a short piece, and Radio Shack sells them in 1-foot lengths. Also, the "no power needed" comments only mean you don't have to have power up in the attic - you DO need to have an outlet available near the TV, to plug the AC adapter into for the power injector. I had to get a power strip since we already had an adapter for another device at that outlet.

                        Comments about RadioShack® In-Line Signal Amplifier:

                        I tried at least 20 different types of boosters and this is by far the best and easiest. Wireless no need to run power to this one. Put one at the antenna end and the other at your TV or splitter. Plug it in the same place you plug in your TV and that is it. If you are still having problems add the rotor to the antenna.

                        I get 33 over-the-air channels 9 television stations in the Pittsburgh area and I am 20 miles South. Sweet and HDTV is clearer then Comcast and Verizon.

                              We are about 50-60 miles from TV stations and needed a little extra boost to keep weak stations from going in and out. Not only did the booster accomplish this but also brought in a few more stations.

                              Comments about RadioShack® In-Line Signal Amplifier:

                              I had only 7 stations. After installation, I had 0 stations. I think this system may not be compatible with Digital Converter boxes. It hooked up easily, but I suspect the output drive was too much for the converter box to handle. Also, the 4 dB noise figure is not much to shout about; doubles the noise out???? Other possibility is that large FM signal in my area may be swamping the amplifier's dynamic range.

                                The instructions for this amplifier are practically useless. It appears that although I followed exactly what they say, I've destroyed a rather expensive antenna. It wasn't until I read another reviewer's comment explaining that the instructions IN the box are wrong and the ones on the OUTSIDE of the box are correct that I had the courage to try it with another antenna. So far, the performance has been pretty good, though I'm scared to touch anything for fear of damaging something else. I would recommend the product with one caveat: only if they rewrite the instructions! Otherwise, tread carefully.
