From a John Stephens post here earlier:


"When a high quality amp causes you to lose the signal, means that you are over driving the front end of your receiver".


Ideally, preamps should be deployed with full knowledge of the signal levels at the set as measured with an RF power meter. Absent this, get your self a handful of small in line attenuators(or a variable attenuator) and adjust for best reception. I want to point out that many of the ancedotal stories in this thread may serve to mis-lead users on the cause and effect. It is an absolute fact that a high gain low noise preamp(properly deployed) will improve reception dramatically. But remember if you are doing it blindly, you may have to

experiment with attenuators to set the levels.

John Stephens


Whoops, I forgot this step. What signal level does the 6000 module like to "see" to perform optimally?


I have the Channel Master 3010 Stealth with matching preamp.

I know most TV tuners like at least 7db. A tuner usually operates from

-7db to about 15db. Every TV IS different, these are levels I've found

using a signal meter when building in house systems in large homes.
