In Line signal amplifier question
Posted 04 December 2008 - 05:20 PM
I have a run from sat about 140 feet give or take a few to receiver and thinking of buying one of these amplifiers just incase as I'm doing a pole mount underground line run, and just thinking of all possibilities now rather than later.
At what point in line is it best to hook these babies up? I would like to do the run -sat to ground block(grounded of course) then ground block to amplifier -then about a 59 foot cable run to the receiver. Hows this sound? They are pretty affordable so may just order one, is there any down side?

Just make sure to use solid copper core RG6 or better cable.
