Hello,

yes, mounting the sdv8622t/27 antenna higher will improve its reception. The more the antenna goes up, the better the reception it receives. There won't be any interruptions if the sdv8622t/27 antenna goes higher. So, it is better if you mount the antenna higher as you intend.

As for the booster, it is not okay for the booster to stay outdoors. The booster should remain indoor, while the antenna stays outdoor.

I believe this is clear to you now. If you still have any more questions about your sdv8622t/27 antenna, please let me know as I would be please to respond to you.

Yours sincerely.

Have a bose wave and live in a metal building. Can't get hardly any am fm radio recept. 3.5 mm antena jack. Can I get an am fm antenna? And do I need to mount antenna outside?


The Bose has the option for external antenna, but uses the AC cord as the antenna, so first try stretching your AC cord to its fullest extent in a straight line, then in different directions to see if that improves the situation. This is for FM only. The AM uses an internal ferrite rod antenna, and this is sensitive to direction, so try rotating the radio in different directions to see if signal improves on AM, and place unit as near a window as possible.

If none of this helps, you will be able to use an external antenna, and no it is not mandatory that they be mounted outside ... as long as you have room indoors. In fact, several manufacturers market indoor antennas for apartment dwellers and others under restrictions against mounting antennas outdoors.

But, logically, the best way to improve reception is the largest antenna mounted as high up and as far away from obstructions between the antenna and transmitter as possible.

Good luck.

The signal comes from low in the Southern horizon, so if you have a trailer it is blocking the antenna. You would be best off to buy a special trucker antenna that mounts on your mirror and gets it a little bit higher and away from the trailer blocking the signal from the south when you're driving North. Okay? good Luck.

Is Clear-Cast TV micro antenna device legitimate?


From a basic standpoint, yes it is legitimate and it will work. How well it will work really depends on a number of things. it depends on where in your house you place it, how far you are from the transmitters and what your house is made from. The structure can interfere with reception.
As a general rule, outside is better than inside for over the air digital reception. Higher is also better, so place any antenna as far up on your house as you can outside, next go to the attic space if you can;t mount it outside. And even if you are in a condo or HOA , they have to allow you to mount a TV antenna on your house outside under FCC regulations.

It needs to be pointed in the correct direction of the transmitter with no obstructions and mounted in the correct orientation for your area (horizontal or vertical). I'm not sure if this can be mounted horizontal or if you should have got the SDV8625T/27.

I took my 2006 Trailblazer through the car wash and the antenna broke off. I have replaced the antenna, antenna mount and cable that leads to the radio. If I'm in the bigger town where I live radio...


Did you replace the antennea with the EXACT same one,or did you get an aftermarket one ? Did you replace/reinstall the rubber/plasitic gasket that sit's under the base where the antennea mount's on the truck ? If you answered yes to ALL of these question's,then your problem lie's in the cable itself. Be sure that you have the CORRECT one (cable) because where the cable connect's to the antennea there can be no play (looseness) or you WON'T get the proper signal.

The FM antenna is insufficient. I there a way to improve reception? Another antenna that will fit?


To improve reception, use a 75 Ohm outdoor antenna instead of an indoor antenna. Disconnect the indoor antenna before replacing it with an outdoor antenna.

Improve reception


HI there,

Well Yes you can improve the reception, please follow the below steps -

Improve FM Radio Reception -
 
1. If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver, purchase a simple dipole antenna--a simple T-shape flexible wire-- and connect it to the FM antenna inputs on the receiver. Because FM signals are directional, you'll want to experiment with the positioning of the wire to find the best reception of the station you're trying to receive.
 
2. If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
 
3. If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
 
4. If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
 
5. Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.


Improve AM Reception -
 
1. Gradually rotate the radio 360 degrees. Leave it in the position where it sounds best.
 
2. Reverse the AC plug if it isn't polarized. (If you can flip the plug over, then it's non-polarized.)
 
3. Plug the radio into a different AC outlet.
 
4. Move the radio closer to a window.
 
5. Experiment to learn if appliances and powered products in your home are causing interference: computer monitor, television, electric blanket, light dimmer, fluorescent light, hair dryer, air conditioner, smoke detector. If possible, turn off the offending item. Otherwise, move the radio to another room.
 
6. Upgrade to an external antenna if your receiver, tuner or radio has a place to connect one.
 
7. Buy a passive AM antenna that doesn't need to be connected to a radio or receiver.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Poor antenna reception


That's a problem with the digital broadcasting. Signal strength is critical, and the frequencies used are more directional. Some people are finding they get no reception at all. Your antenna may not need to be higher, but aimed in a different direction. Did you have a rotator installed as well? An outside antenna really should be pointed toward the station. You might also be able to add an amplifier to the antenna to boost the signal. But get a mast-mounted version that mounts right at the antenna, not the kind that goes at the TV set.

Need a smart antenna to go with the Digital TV converter box


First, you don't need a Smart Antenna, the manual is simply stating that your converter will use one if you have it. Any standard antenna will work, so there is no need for a coupon to pay for a new one, whether indoor or outdoor depending on your location and distance from each channel transmission tower. Since you don't give details of what antenna you are using, I will assume you have rabbit ears for each converter. Rabbit ears are notorious for poor reception and any metal or persons nearby will change the reception quality. I would recommend a roof mounted external antenna with splitters for the 3 converters if you have the option. If not, use an amplified internal antenna and mount it closest to the channel towers you will watch most and as high as possible. If you can find a smart antenna, which is an amplified indoor/outdoor antenna with a control cable for changing the direction of reception, for a decent price, you can use that but keep in mind that to use the control feature you will need one for each converter. Also, check antennaweb.org for information on digital channels in your area and their direction and distance. Antennaweb.org will also tell you if any digital channel in your area uses VHF frequencies. If they don't then a UHF only antenna will work fine.
