I've installed a DB4 on a 10' stick strapped to the chimney.
I had a 100' piece of RG59, so I used that to connect the antenna to the set.
Antenna is oriented to 130 MAG.
Got marginal reception on WFMY, WGHP, many dropouts.
Shortened cable by half, reception improved.
WFMY is now pretty solid at 20/100, WGHP shaky at 10/100.
WXII is 70/100, WUNL is 60/100.
I'm guessing that I should change the cable to RG6, and possibly add an inline preamp.
Any suggestions for preamps? I have AC in the attic available for injection.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks!
