PA18 UHF / VHF Antenna Pre-Amplifier Kit is rated 4.1935 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from PA18 UHF / VHF ANTENNA PRE-AMPLIFIER This amplifier did not work the first time- sent it back to be checked out and tried again - this time it degraded the signal. The over the air channels were weaker by 50% and some were not available at all. Antenna works better with out the preamplifier. I'm about 50 miles from the tv stations. I tried the pre-amplifier on both of my antennasdirect antennas. I had better results with a different manufacturer which did not degrade the tv signal. Antenna works good but pre-amp does not work at my location. Antenna is placed in my first floor condo window, can not put the antennas outside.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does it Work? Not sure! I have had this pre-amplifier now in use for 9 months, however, I'm not sure if it works for me. I live very far (nearly 40 miles) from the broadcasting stations for 4 channels and was hoping this kit would boost my signal sufficiently to view them (my antenna is in the attic). Before installing this kit, I could view these channels occasionally but they were really hit or miss. After installing the kit, I still have an intermittent signal. It seems to be better than without but cannot throughly verify this is the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Antenna is 5 times better than my old one An Antenna's Direct engineer advised me a DB4E antenna with the PA18 preamplifier would be good for my remote location in rural Ohio where cable is not available. The antenna arrived promptly and directions were easy to follow. I mounted the antenna high on top of my two-story barn. It worked immediately and we now receive 50 stations clearly instead of 5 to 10. Most of these are 50+ miles from our farm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from assume it is great. I bought this unit on the recommendation of your office. It made no changes in my reception. However, our son-in-law suggested I run the signal through a unit that was used to get a signal for an earlier model TV. We are now getting most of the St. Louis channels, but we still do not receive channel 9. It we take it off the unit all we get is a very bad set of interruptions no all channels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally After cutting the cable tie and installing a digital antenna, I can now receive several of my favorite networks. I live 50 miles from the nearest transmitter, and with four TVs hooked up to the antenna with a standard four way splitter, I was only receiving a few channels. After installing the powered four way splitter, my channel selection improved three fold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more monthly bills for junk stations We get most of the stations we ever wanted. Mt.Wachusett is in the way for Boston stations from where we live so have to rely on CT news and our pbs station can be hit or miss but we get to watch the Patriots so we love it. No more high monthly bills for junk stations we ever wanted. We are so happy and have convinced my parents to get an antennae also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well! Been running this unit on my antenna for about 6 months with no problems. So far, rock solid performance. So glad I got rid of cable. $100 a month richer these days thanks to Antennas Direct. Don't miss Cable at all. Get 32 channels free here in the Detroit Metropolitan Area. Couple that with $9.00 for Netflix and you're all set

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product worked great, service was better. I purchased two versions of a digital antenna from Best Buy. I got frustrated because the sales people there said if that one didn't work, try this one. I called Antenna's direct, they told me what to buy and why. I gave them my address and they said I need this, that, and another thing. I installed it and it works perfect.
