I want to make sure I am not overdriving the tuner with my inline amp.
Since you didn't give us a tvfool report, I had to make an estimate of your location to give a better answer.



Your signals are quite weak and 2Edge (interference from terrain). You will need a high gain antenna for UHF and VHF-High aimed at 60 degrees magnetic.

You should use a preamp at the antenna. If you have more than one TV, try a passive splitter before adding a distribution amp.

WQPX is the weakest signal you will be able to receive, except when there is signal enhancement from Tropospheric Propagation
