Amplify BEFORE The Line Loss!
- Virtually overload proof
- Mast mount for best signal to noise ratio and performance
- Also works great for low power FM transmitters
- Put your power at the antenna not in the feedline
- Very well filtered with 5 sections of low pass filtering
We developed this unit to try and receive a small college station about 35 miles away. Sure, we had a pretty good omni directional FM antenna on the roof, but we also had a big 50KW local AM station about 3 miles away! Any preamp we tried simply overloaded and replicated the strong station all over the band. Our solution was to take our popular broadband LPA1 one watt (!!) amplifier, add lots of low pass filtering and selectivity for the FM band, and put it in a nice weatherproof housing. To make things even easier, we added a power insertion box to feed the DC power up the same coax as the signal! Wow, did it do a job! Then - as an experiment - we tried using it to boost one of our FM transmitters, cool! We couldn't believe the increase in transmission range, and the lowpass filtering made us feel pretty good about not futzing up anyone else's reception! Naturally, this is a no-no in the USA, but great for the export markets. Includes the outdoor PVC enclosure and the matching black case & knob set. Discover the first rule of amplifiers...do it BEFORE the noise, with the FMBA1C!
