Amp is a 2 part system.
The part down below I'm guessing is the power supply. Again: If turning it on only makes things worse, just remove both bits entirely. Having it in there passively isn't helping you, either. It may be hurting you.
Coax is only 1 to 3 years old.
It's probably ok, then.
Unfortunately my current antenna is in the best position possible. I cannot move my house or the neighbors or the neighbors beyond them to a different position. I am trying to make the best choice with the limited options I have.
Well, then, I guess what you have is the best you're going to get.
Highly unlikely, in my opinion. You can try it. RF is a strange beast, and sometimes things work that, on paper, should not. Make sure you can return the antenna if it does not.
Btw: Gain is not free. Gain is achieved by narrowing the radiation pattern. So your stations off-axis will probably get worse. E.g.: Compare my antenna's radiation patterns: Winegard Model HD7078P Engineering Specifications
to the slightly higher-gain Winegard Model HD8200U Engineering Specifications
. You'll notice the latter antenna's radiation patterns are somewhat more narrow. That's how gain in a directional antenna is obtained.
Thanks JSeymour Looks like an antenna is not in my future. I figured that I can get 2 channels somewhat with an cheap indoor antenna that i'd be able to get much more with a good outdoor antenna.
As with Larry, above: You can give it a shot, but don't be surprised if the results are less than satisfactory. Again: Theoretically speaking
, you've got a steep hill to climb. If you can get an antenna to try you can return, it's only your time, right?
I didn't know what any of that information meant on TVFools, but since it's looking pretty bad, ill stick with my Prime device.
It's not looking just "pretty bad," it's looking very bad
. But if you're getting two channels "somewhat" with a cheap indoor antenna (which you failed to mention initially), then who knows? Maybe you'll get lucky.
