What is a Pre-Amp and should I use one?

Question: What is a Pre-Amp and should I use one?

Answer: A Pre-Amp amplifies the signal your antenna receives to allow for weak signals to be read by the tuner in your TV or digital converter box. An amplifier will NOT make your antenna more powerful it will only boost the signal the antenna already is receiving. Using an Amp when it is not needed could cause you to have signal issues due to over powering the tuner, so before ordering an Amp with any antenna it may be necessary to contact Antennas Direct customer service for their recommendation.
