How to Improve Reception
Understanding how to improve antenna reception will help your antenna perform better. Let’s take a look below.
- Mount the antenna as high as possible.
- Clear of clutter in tower directions.
- Pointed in direction of broadcast towers.
1. Frequency Bands
Most broadcasts are in the UHF band, but in some cases, a UHF antenna works for VHF signals
Use a VHF / UHF antenna to get all bands
In addition to receiving only VHF / UHF signals, our premium antennas can even receive a DTV / FM signal. Check the antenna models below to learn more!
2. Weak Signal
Use a high gain antenna.
Install an antenna pre-amp.
Most of our outdoor antennas come with built-in low noise & high gain amplifier, so you don’t have to spend extra money on the pre-amp. Check our most valuable deal now – Installation Kit Package
3. Distant & Spread Out Headings
Use 2 or 3 antennas.
Use an Omni antenna (360° coverage). Omni antenna can pick up signals from all directions within its reception range, therefore no need to rotate the antenna.
Rotor antenna (high gain and 360°). Typically, the rotor antenna can reach further distance than the Omni antenna.
RG-6 coax cable (F-type connectors).
Cable runs as short as possible.
Installation Package includes one antenna, one flat cable, one 40 feet coax cable, one 4-way splitter, and 15 cable clips.
Make sure all connectors are tight.
Check outside connectors for corrosion.
Outside connectors covered with a rubber weather boot or electrical tape. The surge protector will prevent high voltage surge & lighting strikes.
Unused ports covered with a 75 ohm load.
