Hello Aceshigh22; welcome to the forum.Thanks for posting the photos.Your antenna is a good first effort, but it is not optimum for your location or your mom's.Your prototype is two 4-bays side by side, so it should properly be called a DB8.Her signals are a little stronger than yours. This is a tvfool report for her zip code:http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d5ed6bbb20d154eThat creates a problem because the signals coming from the east will have to...

That sounds like WIWN. Tvfool for Milwaukee:http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3de779a612f63ff0Maybe it's overload, or maybe it's this from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WIWN:If you have maxed out the signal strength indicator, there will be little difference in strength.The Apex that Trip in Va is using at home for WBRA, RF3, is more sensitive than his Zenith DTT900 for VHF-low.
The signal strength meter on my Apex DT502 #1 doesn't go any higher than 84, no matter how strong the signal is; #2 doesn't go above 87. See this post where I made some meaurements with strong signals:http://www.avsforum.com/t/381623/the-official-avs-antenna-and-related-hardware-topic/9570#post_15414426If you are going to compare two antenns or aim an antenna for max signal, you must keep the signal strength indicator well below the max point using an...
Hello, Rich: This is your tvfool report for Providence: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d9900a7436961df With signals that strong, a preamp would probably be overloaded, unlesss something in your attic (like an aluminum foil vapor barrier or aluminum siding) is making the signals much weaker. This is your tvfool report for Seekonk: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d9900beafa85090 I think this is your exact address...
Thanks for the details on your antenna system and the link for further information.Excellent design, Chuck!73,rabbit
Hello, geogabby: Welcome to the forum. t8? If you mean the TIVAX STB-T8, you should read these threads, and post your question on the first thread: Tivax STB-T8 http://www.avsforum.com/t/1108054/tivax-stb-t8 TIVAX STB-T8 help please! http://www.avsforum.com/t/1149424/tivax-stb-t8-help-please
Note: turrmoil is not the thread starter for this thread.He has posted his question on an old thread because his problem is similar.Hello, turrmoil:No, it will hurt because the preamp will be overloaded by WATC, which is only 1.1 mi away from you in Atlanta. Even without a preamp it might be strong enough to overload your tuner.The only way you could use a preamp for your weak signals, if that is what you want, would be to insert a custom bandstop filter to attenuate WATC...
tnd2252: Welcome to the forum. Your tvfool report doesn't look very hopeful. Please try it again using your exact coordinates, for a more accurate report with your difficult terrain. Your report puts you near the intersection of Johnson Rd and 519. What you are receiving is WKMR: http://www.rabbitears.info/market.php?request=station_search&callsign=WKMR I tried an approximate report for your area and I needed to put your antenna up 300 ft for LOS...
Some pieces of equipment don't like modified sinewave (more properly called modified squarewave) inverters. For example, according to Home Power magazine, battery chargers for drills can be damaged by a modified sinewave inverter.http://dimensions.sensata.com/Application_Notes/121613.pdfhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_inverterhttp://www.solarstik.com/stikopedia/stiktm-u/inverter-schoolAPC makes a sinewave inverter called the...
