What can you pull in from across the Sound?
Do you have specs for the pre-amp? (i.e. - Noise Levels?)
The 4228 is UHF only. There are four stations in NYC using VHF (3, 7, 11, & 13).
Sorry, I have the 4221 not 4228. Doeant change the no VHF thing, but still, don't know why I typed that lol. NJTV comes in at night only.
Anyway, right now at 6 PM with the overcast skies, this is what I can pull in.
Turned towards NYC:
And all their subs of course.
All are between 50 and 70% signal strength on my LG TV. Get occasional pixelation on many channels
Pointed towards CT this is what I get in daytime:
26 ION (heavy pixelation, better at night)
The CT channels come in with better signal strength than the NYC channels. And I pull in more at night from NYC, and better strength.
At night I can get NBC, WOR, ION, and some Chinese and Korean channels and maybe more if I remember correctly. I'll have to scan again tonight.
Strange thing is before I mounted the antenna on the roof I brought it out on the deck and with some poles from an old trampoline I hoisted it up to around the height it is now and hooked it up to a small insignia tv I brought outside and was able to pull in 7.1 WABC at night. Haven't seen it since though.
Many of the other NY channels will only reach 25% on the LG signal meter but the TV won't lock on to a signal until it hits about 28%
The preamp is RCA TVPRAMP1Z
22db gain uhf and supposedly 3 nf
