Variable Gain UHF Masthead Amplifier Features

This unit is used in conjunction with a Power unit and a UHF TV Aerial to

  • boost TV signal in poor reception areas - which might be caused by:Long distance from the transmitter
  • Interference caused by an obstruction e.g. (hill)
  • A low gain TV Aerial is being used

The  filter screens inputs of  


Pros

  • Can achieve a 20dB gain which can transform a hazy picture into a clear picture
  • The fact it is screened means it can boost the signal without dragging in excess interference - from CB, private mobile radio, Tetra etc
  • Reliable robust unit
  • Low cost unit
  • Can be used with power passing splitters to feed a number of rooms
  • Generally more effective than a using a distribution system at improving signal quality
  • Can be used in conjunction with a Power passing splitter to feed TV signal to several televisions

Cons

  • Can only handle UHF signal - not VHF
  • Medium gain is not always enough and sometimes you will need to use a high gain unit (which also risks possibility of higher interference) for optium results
  • It a balancing act to select the correct masthead amplifier (if any at all)
  • If used incorrectly or if there is a large amount of background interference, a power unit and a masthead amplifer can actually make matters worse - particularly in a strong reception area
