Hello I have a Channel Master 4228 on a mast that is about 40ft up on the roof , 19.8 miles out from the ESB in Westfield, NJ. There is about a 20ft run of Quad Shield cable with no splitter or amp connected. I get all UHF channels fine with excellent signal strength. However I have problems with VHF 7.1 WABC. The signal strength is right at 40% and just at the edge of being able to tune. In fact when it rains I guess due to multipath it comes in fine. No ability to tweak or rotate the antenna has yielded improved signal strength.
I bought a Channel Master 7778 VHF and UHF amplifier mast mount. Connecting it overpowers my UHF channels and I lose some of them. So this is not a great option.
Can people please share how they solved this. Anyway to just boost the VHF signal inline. I really dont want to have to combine a second antenna (yagi) to just pull in one channel.
