No reception from Lusby. We are using the Winegard HD9095P on the roof, and we can get a snowy analog signal, but absolutely no digital signal from any direction (DC, Balto, Salisbury). A sad day, and a waste of $$. (zip 20657)
If you get no signal, would a preamp do anything?
I have no idea where Lusby is and what your circumstances are, but I can tell you this. When I moved a couple of years ago, I used Davis Antenna to move my antenna from my old home to my new. What a disaster! I will never spend any money with them again. I was never satisfied with the install and I don't think the two clowns who showed up to do the install had a clue what they were doing. They charged me over $500 (just in labor) which I had to negotiate down from the $800 they wanted to charge.
Last fall, I was still not getting WBDC-DT, but the Isabel hurricane knocked over my antenna, so I called Fairfax Antenna. It was like night and day compared to Davis. The owner of Fairfax asked me what channels I was having a probelm with and used a spectrum analyzer to find a much better location on the roof. He moved and re-installed the new antenna and WBDC-DT increased 35 points in signal strength according to my receiver. It is rock solid now.
I say all this to say that it is just like Davis Antenna to waste your money and not deliver anything. So, if I were you, I wouldn't rule out getting OTA just because of your experience with them.
