          Comments about RCA TVPRAMP1R Outdoor Antenna Preamplifier:

          I dropped cable and went with a medium range directional outdoor antenna. I was able to receive excellent reception of ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, and PBS from the antennas 10 miles aways(not only the primary feeds, but their 2nd and 3rd channels). However ION, 37 miles away, was pixelating. The pre-amp solved the problem. The only drawback was that my strongest original stations had poorer signal strength with the pre-amp, probably because they were overamplified slightly, but the picture quality is still excellent on all channels. So don't buy this unless you KNOW your antenna needs a boost.

          Comments about RCA TVPRAMP1R Outdoor Antenna Preamplifier:

          This works very well. The only minor issue I have is that the power injector has a soldered in tail of RG-59 with a cheap old style crimp on end instead of a female connector or a RG-6 with a good compression end.

            Comments about RCA TVPRAMP1R Outdoor Antenna Preamplifier:

            I live about 50 miles due east of Manhattan. TV reception is very poor due to the distance to the transmitter in Manhattan. I had cancelled cable TV because of the ridiculous cost, but missed news and sports events, so I bought an outside TV antenna from Radio Shack, and this amplifier to see if I could bring in signals from that far away.

            I'm pleased to say that I get 76(!) stations, including CBS-HD, NBC-HD, FOX-HD, ABC-HD, PBS-HD, etc. The picture quality is outstanding. The amplifier is very easy to setup, with an attachment outside to the antenna mast.

            There are three coax connections, one from the antenna lead, one for VHF/UHF, and one for just UHF. If you use the combined VHF/UHF connector, the UHF is not used. But there is no rubber cover provided for this unused connector, so I worry that it will get compromised by severe weather. Nothing yet, however, after three snowstorms and rain.

            All in all, very easy to use, and provides clear, crisp picture quality.

                Comments about RCA TVPRAMP1R Outdoor Antenna Preamplifier:

                WOW!! This little thing works. Dropped paid cable service and went back to Over-the-Air antenna. That seems to be coming more of the normal now, with prices for TV going up and up. Anyway, had 6 channels with a new HD antenna and live about 60 miles away from the city. Ordered this to give it a try. Well now I have over 30 channels and HD. Signal strength is better than average on all channels. This may not work for everyone, but it worked for me and I am completely satisfied with the results.
