Re: New Silicondust LTE Filter

It's been more than a month. Is it just empty words? I was not aware Amazon was charging the customer for shipping if the total order is under $25. They are charging us for shipping as well. I will talk it through internally - we can probably offer an alternative shipping where we ship for free. Nick

Re: Antenna recommendations?

A signal map may be useful to see which channels are available, signal strength, direction and in which bands (VHF-lo 2-6; VHF-hi 7-13; UHF-modern 14-36; UHF-legacy 38-51). https://www.rabbitears.info/searchmap.php OTA with no fuss. Sounds like an oxymoron. But as kyl416 said. Start with a pair of r...

Re: Lets Talk LTE Interference

Purchased mine in Oct. 29, 2020. It also has the 5-599 / 600-3000 label. Though the third party frequency response measurements I've seen were done Feb. 12, 2020. -3.3 dB on channel 36. That's about the same as a two way splitter and similar to the third party measurement I've seen of the SD filter....

Re: Lets Talk LTE Interference

Have you actually measured the frequency response. Others have. I have that device. I can see the label for myself. Labels are marketing, not specs. I have copy of the spec sheet as well has actual measurement results done by a third party. You obviously have access to necessary equipment to do act...

Re: Lets Talk LTE Interference

For me the channelmaster did indeed negatively affected things on 35 and 36, SD's filter did not even though being told that it (CM) should be 608. Frequency response comparison should be able to confirm that. But the only frequency response comparisons that seem to be publicly available do not. Su...

Re: Lets Talk LTE Interference

I posted about that in different thread several months ago. CM said the 600MHz on the label referrers to the 600MHz LTE band. Not the the filter spec. That also coincides with actual test results that have been posted in the AVS forums. Where it is down about 3.3 dB at channel 36. That is similar to...

Re: Lets Talk LTE Interference

Probably could be but would require a dynamically applied filter depending on mode/what is tuned in. Probably not worth the cost for it to be built-in. Besides many antennas are split to multiple devices/tv's and thus should have an external filter anyway.

Lets Talk LTE Interference

I have some mixed feelings about posting this because I don't want to promote SD LTE filter sales. But there seems to be some misunderstandings about LTE interference and the use of an LTE filter. Though by well meaning people I think it tends to mislead people into thinking they don't need a filter...

Re: LPF-608M LTE FILTER

According to CW's review on Amazon with measured specs.
"Ch36 (602,608MHz): -2.2, -4.7dB respectively"

From specs I've seen this is substantially the same as the Channel Master LTE filter.

Re: New Silicondust LTE Filter

We've seen spec sheet of the Channel Master LTE filter and 3rd parting test results. Where is the SD LTE filter spec sheet and test results?
An extra 99 cents for the SD logo. Oh and it looks like plus shipping too.

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

Antenna physics didn't begin with HDTV. The modest bowtie TV antenna many people and I use conforms to physics. That's why they were designed and built. That's why they work. The modest bowtie that has about 30" of 300 ohm twin lead was common place back in the days of analog TV transmission and wer...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

Go back and look at the conditions I cited. Within 20 miles LOS. That frequently results in favorable reception situation. Very modest antennas can and do work very well in those situations. Even for VHF low band. Piece of wire, single rabbit ear, 13" x 3" bowtie. A dedicated antenna for VHF low ban...
