Variable Attenuator

For those living very close to broadcast towers, problems with multipath interference can occur because the signals are so strong they bounce off nearby buildings and other objects, causing a complete loss of signal reception. With our Attenuator, you can adjust the signal power to minimize multipath interference.

Variable Attenuator is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as it is supposed to, but didn't work for me This product does attenuate (reduce) the signal strength, as it is supposed to do. However this didn't work in my situation. I had a bad case of multi-path interference. I was hoping the attenuator would reduce the signal strength, thereby reducing or eliminating the multi-path interference. It did reduce the signal strength but didn't reduce the multi-path interference. I then relocated my indoor TV antenna from the living room to the attic and that solved the multi-path interference problem. The attenuator didn't work for me but that doesn't mean it wouldn't work for someone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works just as desired and expected! Simply put, I'm greedy. I have two antennas so I can tune more channels than I can with just one. Generally speaking, my setup works well. I was experiencing enough multipath interference that I lost two channels when I combined antennas. I use this variable strength attenuator to dampen the signals on one antenna enough to cut out the second path for the two channels experiencing multipath interference. I can get all the channels I should get now in part due to this lovely piece of antenna tech. Do not hesitate to buy this item if you are facing a choice between these and competing products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does What It Was Made For! I have the Clearstream 4, installed on the roof of my home. I have this product installed from the Clearstream 4, to the variable attenuator, to the tv. I noticed when I turn the knob on it clockwise, the strength of the signal is strong, allowing me to receive channels clearly. I also noticed when I turn the knob on it counterclockwise, I get less channels, but still clear. So, I leave it on clockwise, to maximize the signal strength. It controls multipath interference, just enough to do what it's suppose to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what I want it to Have a 70 mile antennae and what to have 70 mile reception and 20 mile reception on local channels (Boston and Providence RI) adjusting the knob allows for just that no heavy pixels for local channels. Works GREAT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for me I set this up on my outdoor antenna before the FM trap. It helps with some of the weaker channels for me.
