(I will describe all channels as real)

1. Dissatisfied with channel 39 CBS reception out of Seattle and
2. Being told my PCT amplifier was not a true TV preamp

I purchase a second antenna, a 42XG, which I pointed toward the CBS repeater on channel 26 in Silverdale, WA, about three miles away. I also purchased a combiner/preamp, an RCA TVPRAMP1R, from Walmart for 22 dollars.

This combination runs circles around the previous setup! The TVPRAMP1R works so much better that, including sub-channels, I now get 12 more channels! Except for occasional 1Edge and 2Edge dropouts almost all stations are 100 percent. Now I am much happier.
