F Type 75 Ohm Terminator

Also known as Dummy Loads, terminators are an essential component in the proper termination of unused outputs of line splitters and amplifiers which utilize a Type F interface.
     During a channel scan, sometimes your TV tuner will reject a weak signal that flashes on your screen (then disappears).  So you know a signal is reaching your antenna, but it is "too weak" to maintain quality reception (digital signals cannot be fine tuned).
A preamplifier may help strengthen that signal. 

Weak Signal


     A preamplifier (or preamp) is used for weak to moderate signal areas to allow a weak signal that is present at the antenna to be amplified to a viewable strength.   A preamp is designed to be installed at the beginning of a long coax run or before a  splitter in order to offset loss in the coax/splitter.  
     Sometimes when multiple signal splitters are installed, you may need both a preamplifier and a distribution amplifier depending on what it takes to maintain a good signal.
     Check out the noise figure and dB gain of the amplifier.  The proper signal amplification is determined by computing the signal loss that will occur getting the signal from the antenna to the TV.   Match the dB gain of the amplifier to accommodate your antenna system to select the correct amplifier. 
     Use a distribution amplifier (not a preamp) in strong signal areas when you want to divide the signal to several TVs in your house.
