Submitted TV Antenna Recommendation Form from Surprise, Arizona.
1. Address: ________________ Surprise Arizona 85379
2. Email: ________________
3. Approximately how many feet above ground level will the antenna be installed?: 7-9
4. Will the antenna be installed outside above the roof line or in the attic, other: no
6. How many TV locations within your home will the antenna supply? In other words, will a signal splitter be in use and if so how many times will the splitter divide the TV signal?: 3 TVs
7. Approximately how long will the coax cable run be from the antenna to the TV. If a signal splitter is in use how long will the cable run be from the antenna to the furthest TV: 85ft
8. Include any additional information you feel may be helpful when evaluating your reception conditions.: have you heard of success with powered indoor antennas penetrating through stucco? what if I place it near a window?
TV reception when the signals must penetrate stucco is usually not as good. However, if you can place the FlatWave Air antenna in a window that faces East or South the reception should be very good. The built-in preamplifier of the FlatWave will easily supply good signal to 3 TVs. The only issue may be the reception of VHF TV signals. The Phoenix market has 3 VHF TV stations. FOX, ABC and PBS are VHF stations.
If you have any questions or if I can assist you further please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks for your quick reply. In thinking about it, it will probably be easier and cheaper just to get an outdoor one and place it on my existing satellite dish pole. I've seen you recommend the EZ HD Antenna > for others in my area so I assume that's the one I should go with since it won't be mounted above the roofline but which amplifier do I use? Is it dependent on the distance of my furthest TV?
Also, do all these antennas go thru coax cables? We are using computer monitors and projection screens without those connectors but our DirecTV satellite receiver has coax input so maybe we can rig it with that since I believe we bought the receivers and won't have to give them back after 'cutting the cord'.
You're welcome for the response.
The EZ HD TV antenna > is an excellent choice for an outdoor application. The EZ HD is designed to receive both VHF and UHF digital signals. The preamplifier best suited for the conditions is the LNA 200 >. This unit will supply up to four TV locations.
Yes, the antennas all use coax cable.
Do I need any addition amplification or is the LNA 200 all I need?
I think your best amplifier option that will avoid overload and provide enough signal amplification for the entire system is the Winegard LNA 200 preamplifier. This unit has a excellent signal input capacity and offers 20 dB gain on the LNA 200 should be ideal.
The EZ HD antenna will provide strong incoming TV signals to the LNA 200 preamplifier. The LNA 200 will add the 20 db gain to the signals from the EZ HD. Between the gain of the EZ HD and the gain of the LNA 200 the signal coming out of the LNA 200 should be strong enough to supply the entire system.
Ok I made my purchase!
Great! Keep me posted.
