Re: New Silicondust LTE Filter

What do you mean reversing? I don't think there will be any filtering if you do that. I mean exactly that. Reversing. Why would you think there would be no filtering? It is a passive device. The CM LTE filter seems to work just as well in either direction. I'd suspect the SD LTE filter is nearly id...

Re: New Silicondust LTE Filter

So in order to add it to the existing setup the following is needed: a piece of coax with 2 RF connectors on the From Antenna end https://i.postimg.cc/8cGWJ7PC/51-Mdg8-Hue-SL-AC-SL1200.jpg gended bender on To TV/Amplifier end https://i.postimg.cc/gkNRjk9Y/41r1-O1-Ks-N2-L-AC-SL1000.jpg Why aren't bo...

Re: New Silicondust LTE Filter

It is an inline filter - you attach it to the back of your HDHomeRun or the back of your RF amplifier. No cables required. Unless running an amplifier at the antenna. The filter should go upstream of the amp so that the amp doesn't get over driven. The LTE filter being a passive device can actually...

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: 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 an...

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 V...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

Don't believe every online calculator you see. That calculator also thinks a ch. 10 (195 MHz) bowtie would have to be about 4 feet wide (2 feet each side). When I know for a fact that a 13 inch wide (6 inches each bow, 3 inches high, and 1 inch feed point gap) works just fine. Gets 100% indoors at 1...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

Yup. A folded dipole is what I was going to suggest giving a try. Though twin lead doesn't have to be used. Even if not using twin lead a 1:4 balun should still be used if connecting to coax. i.e. 75 to 300 ohm "transformer". It does more than just match impedance. It properly converts the...

Queried Channel Master Support re: discrepancy between the CM-3201 LTE filter device label (Pass: 5-599 MHz. Block: 600-2000 MHz) and the tech spec page (Pass: 5-609 MHz. Block: 610-2000 MHz). Not going to cut/paste the response, but to paraphrase. The tech spec is the true range (Pass: 5-609 MHz. B...
