Is this amplifier to powerfull at 20BD gain?
location Montgomery AL,36111near JD only a few miles from all TV broadcast station.
I started w/ the single Y-tube antenna in the attic workedgood for the first few years, then started to drop out I had a choice watcheither all channels but 8CBS or all channels but 12NBC.
I added another single Y-tube actually making a CM4228 minusthe rear deflector
I actually tried a oven tray and a piece of cardbroadcovered w/ renolds wrap for a rear deflector it worked better w/out the reardeflector.
this has been working excellent until recently channel 12NBCisn’t working weird thing is in the other room w/ a terk indoor amplifiedantenna all channels come in even 12NBC.
Maybe adding a amplifier to the Y-tube antenna will pick up12NBC?
I have a Magnavox DVR it has a 3BD gain amp. Usalley whenreception demishes I use the Magnavox and it will pick up the missing channelswhen now even the Magnavox won’t pickup the missing 12NBC.
Am I wastseing my time fooling w/ amplifiers or should Ijust go ahead and get the CM4228?
I’m still confussed about long distance, directionale ect.
This looks just like the cm4228 however it’s a long distance
from what I’ve read me being close to the broadcast stationsthe longhual will be worst than my Y-tube?
I read a lot and found this Yagie type was the best
this had the same problem as the single Y-tube it was likedirectionale like it picked up all channels expect of either 8 or 12 it had tobe adjusted which isn’t a option to be crawling up in the attic to adjust eachtime I change from 8 to 12.
The SolidSignal Xtreme Signal HDB8X is bendable would it be worth the effort to bend mydouble Y-tube?
