Simply the BEST preamp available
by TV Tech
I install nothing but Winegard LNA-200s and they out perform and outlast every other preamp on the market. And Solid Signal has the best prices and fastest service so my customers are never kept waiting.
MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE MINIMUM PRICE

The LNA-200 is built to last and has class leading low noise figure performance. Plenty of gain for even the longest coax runs yet plenty of AGC overload protection and filtering
Improved both signal strength and picture quality.

Installed as directed in combination with a Winegard HD8200U TV antenna. Numerous new stations for free-it's all good.
Works Great! Pulls in a lot more stations!
Purchased the LNA-200 Pre-Amp with the Winegard HD769HP antenna. Got it all set up w/antenna pointing SSE this weekend, 5/6/18. The antenna is 10ft. above our 1-story roof peak. We're 30+ miles from Cedar Hill where the vast majority of the station towers are located for DFW area. The Pre-Amp drives 3 Sony TVS (32, 40, & 55) off a 3-way splitter. My old antenna (a Radio Shack long-distance one, about 10ft. long) picked up 20+ signals. This new setup pulls in 117 digital and 1 analog signal. FYI - I already had a 120VAC electrical outlet box in my attic so it was convenient to plug in the Pre-Amp's power supply. Also, I used RG-6 coax cable rather than RG-59. I read that it's a better coax cable. Just wanted to let you know this setup works great. Hope this helps.
I highly recommend Solid Signal for all your OTA needs. Customer service is tops. Technical representatives are very knowledgeable and helpful.
Before investing in OTA (Over The Air)equipment, make sure what stations you intend to receive. Be aware of the FCC mandated Repack which is ongoing which will change the number of stations remaining on the air and those which will go dark (Off air permanent). Once completed, the repack will have removed all UHF channels higher than channel 36. Few stations have opted to go back to the low band channels (2-6), some will to the High Band 7-13), some will revert to a sub-channel on another station and some will leave the air permanently. The low band stations will be very isolated and few in number. If you live 40 miles or more from a station, use an outdoor pre-amp mounted right under the antenna and a rotator if you have stations in different directions. Avoid antennas in the attic due to the shielding from metallic insulation and foliage (trees) which also blocks signals. If you still have concerns or questions...contact Solid Signal.
Best amplifier available for over the air tv
Use this in freedom NY and arcade NY area in southern tier NY to get MeTV and a few other station and it never fails always works like a charm and often get them on sale for like 39$ making it that much better
It's a wash
After spending two hours installing this unit, I am sorry to report that it has made no appreciable difference. The stations that I hoped to pick up more clearly are no better and I have actually lost some of the other channels. The weather boots that are provided to seal the coax connections are useless because they won't stretch over the cable ends. Also be sure to buy two extra coax cables, one for the antenna and one for the powered cable box at the TV. If I didn't have to spend two hours removing this unit, I would return it. At this point I am tired of dealing with it.
Perfect for most antennas

Added to a Clearstream 2 antenna, 35 miles from towers, could not get abc, now get abc with no problem and no distortion from any channel, have 5 other friends and family hooked up the same way and everyone loving it.
The original model worked just fine.
The only problem is the power supply. It loosens up and then TV is intermittent. I got the newer version from the company and one was a failure and the other got just 30 of the stations I previously got. So I just used the NEW power supply and the old one worked fine. The power supply is a horrible design would be much better if it was a transformer, which is much more stable.
This amplifier is an outstanding extreme low noise Design that is the backbone of excellent quality digital YV reception. Brings out the best of most Antennas.

I used this amplifier with an Yagi Antenna RCA ANT751R s and Antenna direct 91XG and also compared with AP8275 low noise amplifier. The TV picture quality was very good because of very low noise floor and higher signal to noise ratio. 18 to 20 Db gain is more than adequate to take care of the cable attenuation( my TVs are about 125 feet of cable, about 8 Db loss) from the signal Antenna source plus an additional 6db. splitter and combiner losses. A second antenna( FL6550A) faces towards Boston TV stations. FL6550A also has similar built in LNA200 amplifier design. The combined signals(Two fixed Antennas pointing in opposite directions, no rotor needed) feed multiple TVs getting good Signals of different channels of viewers choice at the same time). Separate Gain stage( for VHF and UHF Frequencies) and low noise frontend components Makes this amp. differentiates from many other products in the market. A nice device indeed.
