Flint, MI: Are My Signals Too Strong for the CM-7777

#1.) Firstly;
I Own BOTH The CM-7777 (and) the CM-7778
I Only Own the CM-7777 Because I used to live in the Sticks (i.e. Country)
But Now; that I'm in the City are these Signals too Strong for the CM-7777-???
If These Signals are to strong to have a CM-7777 on a Tower at 55-feet.


#2.) Secondly;
I may just Save the 7777 To help boost a pair of non-amplified rabbit ears in a bedroom.
Since I am so close to everything I'm Thinking the CM-7777 Will help the rabbit ears Cut though the walls
of the house better?
and put the 7778 on my 55' foot tower. Would this be the better route to go???











Because I have a Home Theather PC
My Screen Name is a Cross between Microsoft and Theather
A Clever one there LOL

Not much info to go on....how many Tuners are you trying to drive from that Antenna? And you need to enter your location into www.tvfool.com and THEN copy/paste the Results URL (Webaddress at TOP of Browser) into a post on this thread so we can see your signal levels....

I think we just went through all this with you a short time ago. You might want to review that here:

CM-7777 / 7778: "New & Improved"?

The list of stations you posted is basically useless. You still need to post a LINK to your TV Fool report.

A higher gain preamp is not going to do you any good with rabbit ears. Gain is not the determining factor in how much improvement a preamp might provide.

Homemade nearly zero loss combiner for either UHF or VHF that uses a 1/4 wave matching section of 50 ohm coax to match two identical antennas stacked. It is not for combining a UHF and VHF antenna.
