I used my modem to test the signal strength at the end of my drop at the house, and it was like -2dBmV before my splitter. My house is like 210ft from the pole its tap is on. I can see it’s a 14dB value tap. The drop to my house is RG11, and I saw a chart showing that RG11 looses about 4-5dB/100ft. and that would be like a 10dB loss from the pole to the house. I hear the tap gives out about 10dB? An amp at my house wouldn’t be good because its already weak and somewhat noisy there. Can comcast put a 10-15dB amp on my drop at the pole?? So the signal is like 10dB after the 220 ft of RG11? Or can they only put an amp at the house? Please help. Idk if it matters but I live in md.
