Thanks. I don't know any of the specs on this particular amp, but I'll give it a try. If it's not up to snuff, I'll buy a new one.

It drops off all at once from signal quality in the 90s to 0. What kind(s) of equipment/interference could cause this? I live in a rural area with no kind of equipment around for miles.
