    I bought a nice big yaga 80" antenna from RT. Installed in my attic... picked up very limited NYC channels and some PA channels (while pointing towards NYC) so I swung the antenna around and now I get the 4 main stations in PA, sweet! [​IMG]
    Only problem is that I don't really get NBC (30 signal) and the other signals are between 60 and 75. Will an amplifier solve these problems? (i'm 55 miles from PA) Any suggestios of amps?
    thanks guys!

    I ordered the Channel Master 7775 amp. I'm hoping this will help improve signals.. anyone have any experience?

    thanks,

    my understanding is that an amplifier Hurts HDTV signal.

    I added a preamp, (same model as you ordered) to my set up and all of my signals went up. I was at a 50 to 60 in signal strength and everything jumped to 60 to 70 or better. (Of course, ALL of the stations I am trying to get are 40 miles or more away. Any local stations are nothing but snow.)
