    ok so i broke down and bought the usb dongle for my hopper 3. i can pick up all of my locals via antenna although channel 5 KTLA is a little screwy breaking up freezing. i am think that an amp would solve the problem. what are you guys all using and how long have you had your amp as there's a few out there that burn up with in a year

    don't rush to install the amp - most likely you'll need good antenna, for sure outdoor type and do post your RF OTA diagram from tvfool/rabbitear/etc sites

    I like the Channel Master mast ones. Low noise and good gain. Works well here with low power translators. For an antenna (UHF) I use a 91XG Yagi, as all of our translators are at the same location.

    I wouldn’t install an AMP unless it came with the antenna.

    I would get an amplified splitter if your sending the signal to multiple televisions.
