I, (and a few other Boynton area folk), had to add a VHF-Lo filter to reliably get all the Miami stations. The filter eliminates the overload from the channel 5 antenna at Lantana and 441.
BTW I don't use an amp. Bought it but since I got all the stations without it, I don't use it. I have been thinking of trying it back in the line because I seem to be the only one complaining about occasional retrace lines on channel 4 Miami. I'm thinking that a marginal signal might be choking the bandwidth, but only visible at image changes with maximum data transfer.
If you need the filter specifics, start here:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...236#post910318
and note the different part numbers in my post a few messages down:
For anyone contemplating building the filter, the combiner/splitter RS Cat.# 930-0061 David listed may be an online order number only, but the store has a 15-1237 ($9.99) which exactly fits the spacing of the VHF-Hi and UHF ouputs of the three band splitter, and the 75-Ohm Coax "F"-Type Terminator needed is Cat. # 15-1144.
