I have had experiences where amplifier's, pre-amps complicate the signal and are not necessary in most cases. It is just overkill. I would recc. to any person just starting out, get the best antenna the tallest mast you can safely install and the best coaxial cable. Then tweek it to get the best possible results. IMO. Peace

Well I had a bit of a breakthrough this morning. Since I got my rooftop antenna a couple of years ago, I've had it run through a Winegard DA-1009 amp. For a while, I picked up everything with no problem, then I started having problems getting FOX, WPIX and UPN. Constant breakups from all of them. CBS, ABC and NBC haven't given me any issues. So this morning I decided to disconnect my amp and voila, FOX, WPIX and UPN started coming in with no problem! Don't ask why I never thought to do it earlier. Live and learn I guess.
