The other type of amplification, amplifies the signal after it is received. Ensure there are no coaxial cable splitters in the line. Flat antennae also have superior range and reception in relation to other more traditional antennae.

This will ensure a higher level of quality on your TV, and the cable will be less prone to breaking or succumbing to the elements. However, if you were having issues before any splitters were introduced then we may need to look at purchasing a directional antenna with higher gain.

In weaker signal areas or if the antenna will supply multiple TVs a signal will likely be needed. Nearly all modern aerials will work. Selecting the proper preamplifier with the proper signal gain is important.

In general, though, setting your TV's input to "TV" and flipping through channels should do the trick. The costs of putting in the new transmission and other broadcast station equipment to do ATSC are high, so small cities are having a hard time affording the job and also of finding the resources to do it.

In my spare time I build and play guitars and bass, ride motorcycles, and like to sail—hobbies I've not yet figured out how to safely combine. Not Helpful 16 Helpful
