A Great Product Bigwillie - Princeton, eton WV - 3/28/2013 I found this to be one of the highest gain UHF preamp on the market.I live about 100 miles from Roanoke and I can pick up all their UHF digital TV stations at my home with this preamp.Without it I get nothing.I have used it about a year now with no problems....
The price is great for the gain 28 db Whoo Da Poo Da - Texarkana Texas, Texarkana Texas - 3/28/2013 If you don`t have any VHF stations this is the amp to purchase.
Good performer David - Ortonville, nville MI - 3/28/2013 Long term reliability is the big concern since it is mounted high atop the mast. So far all is well.
