5 Installation Tips For Great Over-The-Air HD Reception

N ormally the higher an Off-Air antenna is installed the better. This is because higher installations have better line of site towards the broadcasting station. If you are planning on installing your antenna in your attic as many people do its best to purchase a larger or stronger antenna than what's recommended for your geographical area. Doing so will result in better reception because signals become weaker as they pass through walls and other building materials.

U sing quality RG-6 shielded coax cable and high quality cable connectors can dramatically improve your signal. Often people do not connect connectors properly resulting in poor reception. The main problem is that the connector may look like it's properly installed but in fact it's not. You would be surprised how often we go and trouble shoot a problem were a connector was the cause of bad reception in both off-air-installations as well as cable TV installations. So make sure you check your connectors.

D on't cut costs by using low quality splitters combiners and amplifiers. We understand that it may be tempting to use a $2.00 splitter verses a splitter costing $20.00 or more but in this case paying extra for a quality splitter, signal combiner or distribution amplifier will bring you years of clear reliable television reception.

I f Combining two antennas together it is best to run equal lengths coax cable from each antenna to a good quality signal combiner. It is also recommended to use the same type of antenna fairly distant from each other. Combining two antennas can be a better alternative to using an antenna rotor as you don't have to wait for the antenna to move from one position to another in order to watch TV.

I f your cable run from your antenna is greater than 50', we highly recommend you use a pre-amplifier. A signal amp will not help you in any way to bring you distant stations. The only thing it will do is help you overcome signal loss from long cable runs and splitters. It's also important to weather proof all your outdoor connections using coax weather boots. Doing so will bring you years of trouble free operation.
