Well, I'm qetting zippo with my 4228 and preamp. I pull in all other stations with great signal strength. Of course my location sucks, I am at the bottom of a big hill with huge trees everywhere (Inverness Parkway area off of 280). The best place for me has been on the ground in a particular spot leaned up against a garbage can (attractive, huh)? I never had any luck pulling in the stations with the antenna on my roof or in my attic. Now, I'm not sure what to do (other than to buy a VHF only antenna and see if it can resolve the signal). I was hoping that because other users' UHF antennas were working that mine might to, but as with everything....location, location, location. If anyone wants to "volunteer" to help me out, I'll buy the pizza and beer...Dave Richardson, are you listening..smile?
