Excellent Results Feed Driver - Wallace NC, Wallace NC - 11/30/2011 I installed this the same day it arrived along with a signal attenuator. I needed it to increase the signal of the CBS station in Wilmington NC. The other three stations already had perfect signal strength. In order to max out the problem the signal Attenuator is at 75% of the peamp output.
Has proven to be reliable for 10 years. Recent degradation has been experienced. Engineer3152b - Burlington, WA - 10/17/2015 4:13:16 PM A lightweight unit. The current from the power supply to the amp on the mast has been 55 ma for the past decade. It has recently dropped to 30 ma and TV signals are less strong to the TV. Installation is on a 55' hi mast with cable length about 100' from amplifier to tv. We live 60 mi N of Seattle and 60 mi SE of Vancouver BC. This amp picks up a fringe weak tv signal and drives a long coax. This amp was in operation before Canada went to digital TV. There was no ghosting (delayed reflections) or cross channel talk with this amplifier. It's an indication that the amplifier is reasonably linear and clean. With digital signals ghosting and cross channel talk would not normally be noticed, but a good amp should benefit for being able to decode the DTV signal reliably. When installed, I covered the mast-mounted amplifier with a sheet alumnium housing I fabricated just to keep sun and some weather off the amp. This review reports the reliablity using such a covering. Also, Several thunderstorms passed within about a mile of the antenna, both with amp power on and off. No lightning strikes closer than about 1/3 mile were suffered on my recollection. The input (or Front end) is probably reasonably robust against these strikes. I presently face a debug problem on why the current has dropped and if it's just a coax connection I made or truly an amplifier problem. 10 years of service should speak well of the amp in any case. It costs to fix something on a high mast. Consider well the cost of replacement of a cheaper unit.
