Distribution Amp Suggestions
 
I recently installed an Antennacraft HBU44 in my attic, with broadcast towers 65 miles away. I have it connected to one tv and no preamp. Everything looks great and am getting between 60-80% signal strength. I'm wanting to split to the rest of the rooms in my house but am looking for distribution amp suggestions. 4 rooms total. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

forgot to mention... each cable run from the antenna would be roughly 25 feet.

Install a low noise, medium gain preamp with a four port splitter instead.

Like a Winegard LNA-200?

I'd suggest our PA18, it's quieter.

Would it be an issue with the power insert being in the attic along with the amp? It gets pretty hot/cold up there. I would be splitting it in the attic.

No problem putting the power supply in the attic. However, with the correct type of splitter, you could locate the power inserter behind or near any of your serviced outlets. All you need is a "Satellite-rated" splitter that you can pick up locally, it will feed preamp
