Hi All,


I'm looking to boost my VHF band only. I have two antennas and a Channel Master #0549 UHF – VHF/FM Joiner/Separator. I need to boost the VHF side only.


Will the CM7777 do it for me? The product description: http://www.channelmaster.com/Pages/TVS/TitanAmp.htm

Models 7777 and 7778 cover both VHF and UHF bands with separate amplification in each band for maximum signal handling. They may be configured for either separate or combined VHF and UHF inputs. They include a switchable FM trap.
I could place the amp before the joiner, but would the power go through the joiner?


One more question: What is an FM trap?


Thanks,


Frank

The FM trap blocks out the FM frequency range (88-108Mhz) which neighbors with the range VHF channels 5 and 6 are in (76-88Mhz.) It's to prevent the FM frequencies from causing interference with your VHF channels your trying to receive.

Place the amplifier between the VHF antenna and the joiner, you should be OK.
