You have installed your TV antenna on your roof and have run your coax cable from the antenna to your TV. So why are you only picking up a few local channels? It’s probably that long cable run. This reduces your ability to receive a strong signal from your antenna to your TV. A TV antenna pre-amp might be what you need. This device will produce the juice your antenna needs to deliver more local TV channels.

This Antennas Direct pre-amp is an ultra-low noise, VHF/UHF mast-mounted device. It provides a gain of 15db, and features a 1.8 dB maximum noise figure to improve your TV antenna’s power. Antenna Direct is a top-selling manufacturer of TV antennas and pre-amps, and Solid Signal proudly carries the company’s products. Do you think a pre-amp would be a benefit to your TV antenna installation? We’d be happy to answer your questions and make a product recommendation. Just call us at 877.312.4547.

Antenna Amplifier Installation

The PA-18 is a powerful low noise signal amplifier. It will perform best when connected properly. Remember an amplifier cannot create a signal. It will help over come the loss caused from cable runs and splitters.

 The PA 18 comes with:
  • Low noise pre amplifier
  • Low loss power inserter
  • 12V DV power supply
  • 2 foot coax cable
  • 4 foot coax cable
A pre amp will work best when it is amplifying the signal at its strongest point; nearest the antenna.
 1. Connect the antennas transformer to the pre amp "In" port as shown using the supplied 2 foot cable.
2. Strap the pre amp to the antenna mast using the supplied cable tie.
3. Run your coaxial cable down lead (not supplied) inside your building and connect to the right port of the power inserter. (Do not reverse the connection!!)
4. Connect the left port of the power inserter to your digital receiver using the supplied 4 foot cable (above). (Do not reverse the connection!)
5. Plug the inserter to an 110v power source.

Worked great
- Fox Lake, IL -
The PA-18 antenna amplifier really brought my signal to life. I installed a whole house antenna system and it tested fine going to one TV only missing one channel. When I hooked up the other TV';s using a splitter, now some channels were struggling or not appearing at all especially when there was over-cast weather. Now I can see all the channels without any issues but an occasional flicker on a hard to reach channel, but it seems to correct itself on that.

Well worth the money in my situation. I also received great customer support!
performs as expected

delivers performance as advertised. took very poor stations and brought them to a watchable level. this preamp is being used with an xg91 antenna(which also performs admirably). the big plus(and reason i chose the amp) is that it is powered by 12volts dc and by eliminating the 12volt transformer and feeding 12volts directly to the unit i am able to use it in my camp trailer that is without any 1
