Just looking for thoughts from the community on the best sort of inline amp to use


Current aerial gets enough signal to direct connect one tv, but i need to split it into 4. There is no masthead amp, everything currently passive.


I can access the connection inside the loft space easily, and have power in the roof to put a good unit in and keep it away from the elements. Even have nice house studs to screw it to :-)

You dont access a power point for a domestic Mast head amp, just mount it inline as close to the top of the antenna lead as you can,


You use a specific 12 volt power supply that is fed up the cable from the socket in the lounge/ wherever,


Just make sure that any Splitters you use allow power pass through

You don't need a masthead amp, you need 4/ way distribution amplifier / splitter to feed the outlets
