Some new preliminary results.
If they hold, it's great.
I'm making this report with cautious optimism.

The first preamp to get here was the Winegard.
The Pa 18 may not arrive until tomorrow..

First, I hooked it to the DB8e and bypassed the CM 3414 and connected to only one TV.
Every station came in as either "Normal" or "Good"

Here's what I got: (Only UHF)
Virtual channel Call Letters
2 KDKA
3 WPSU
4 WTAE
6 WJAC
11 WPXI
22 WPNT
40 WPCB
53 WPGH

Subsequently, I hooked everything back up through the CM 3414 with 4 TVs.
No loss of signals or quality on any of the sets.

Weather was snowy and cloudy.
Next, I plan to hook the VHF only to see if I can get WWCP in addition to my usual reliable VHF stations.

After that, I'll try the preamp between the combiner and the CM 3414 with both VHF and UHF connected.

Wish me luck and I'll report back
