You never told us what the reception problem was that you were trying to solve, you only told us what you did.I was hoping for a better outcome with the new powered amplifier. I naively thought that it would solve my reception problems. It did not.Thanks for your help.
Yes, I see that. Your earliest posts were in 2013, and your previous post was in 2016:I've had a love/hate relationship with OTA for the last 5 years.
You also said that you didn't have a preamp at the antenna just the power supply down below:Airplane interference.
I have a new Digiwave ANT7286 Ultra Clear Digital Outdoor Antenna, mounted on the roof of my duplex in St Laurent, connected to a signal amp. and A-B splitter going to 2 tvs. I tuned the antenna to the best possible setting. I get basically all the channels I should, except ABC. I noticed severe signal loss when ever planes approach for landing. I am right under their landing next to cote vertu and highway 15.
Here I am thinking that this is actually a preamp and it turns out to be just a power supply. I myself have nothing up by the Antenna. I only put up the Antenna as I bought it without adding anything to it. Does this mean I have to buy an amplifier? If so, will it really help in strengthening my signal on the weak channels. If so,Any recommendation for a good pre amp?
Thank you for the excellent photos. You DO have a Winegard preamp at the antenna, but we don't know what model. So, when you replaced the Winegard power supply with the CM3412, the preamp wasn't getting any power.Hey rabbit73,
Thanks for the reply. My antenna is and has always been tweaked for the 148.5 signals (NFL centric) but still always had problems getting a strong enough signal. Winegard pre amplifier on the mast. Attached pics to see power lines mentioned as possible reason for weak signals.
Forum member holl_ands had a lot of examples on his ImageEvent, but they are gone because he hasn't paid his renewal fee there. He is an expert computer modeler of antennas, but we haven't heard from him lately; just like 300ohm who was also an expert modeler.Using CM4221HD's, (without modifications), the Reflector Rods limit how close the 4-Bays can be mounted. With modifications, the Null-to-Beam Angle could be increased a bit more.
