We routinely recommend our CDA4 DA for non-traditional use when both amplification and splitting is needed whenever there is a risk of strong signal overload with the PA18. This is based on my experience and recommendation to our staff, so it didn't just get pulled out of the blue sky. You're pretty close to translator W28DP which shows up as 'green' on your plot. I've simplified our guidelines for customer service to simply avoid the PA18 whenever the plot has one or more "green" stations.

A sensitive pre-amp with high overload resistance would usually be a better fit, but we have to work with what we have available to recommend. Our replacement for the overload resistant CPA19 will finally get here this autumn.
