Features 75 input for convenience and easier installation. Universal housing can be used with any off-air TV antenna. Made of high impact ABS material, mast mounted for easy installation. Flexible polyethylene boot covers on 75 ohm.   Zinc-plated steel hardware; all mounting hardware included.

Selectable FM trap reduces FM signals (88-108 MHz) -15 dB to prevent overload, tunable FM trap reduces a 3 MHz band width by -12 dB. Both adjustable — switchable without opening the housing.
Transistor burn-out virtually eliminated with specialized circuitry featuring fast recovery diode that protects against lightning-caused pulses. Operating temperatures -40° to +140° F. 117 VAC UL and CSA approved power supply is included. (Does not include F-connectors.)

U.S. Patent No. D335,887, D358,365, 5,515,240 (Power supply housing design)

A preamplifier is used to overcome any losses in coax cable from the antenna to your TV. Preamplifiers cannot pull in signal or extend the reception range of an antenna.
