I thought I would update my little project. I bought a Digiair Pro ATSC signal meter the other day and have been using it to help me with my Channel 7 problem. Channel 7 shows 51.6 db signal with my distribution amp and 41.0 db without the distribution amp. I was going to get rid of the amp until I tried my system without it. I couldn't get hardly any channels without the amp turned on. My guess is that my current crappy coax is way too long of a run. That problem will be solved shortly when I get time to get up on the roof to run some new Belden RG6 Quad. I also bought the compression ends to go with it. It took me a little while to make my first coax cable yesterday evening, but hopefully it will be worth it.

I also bought an FM Trap at Radio Shack yesterday evening, and I haven't had any pixelating problems on Channel 7, so far. Hopefully, this solved that problem. All the folks on this forum have been a great help. I still plan to buy a separate VHF HI antenna and UHF antenna in the near future, in order to hopefully get a couple more channels. I currently get Ch. 7, 14, 16, 22, 26.1, 26.2, 26.3.
Thank you!
