Essential Info

With all the TVs, VCRs and satellite receivers found in most homes today, the demand for video signals can easily overburden the video signals coming into the house (i.e. signals from cable companies or antennas). The result: A degraded video signal that leads to noisy, distorted TV images. The good news is that that problem can be easily remedied by adding one of these 1GHz RF Bi-Directional Amplifiers before the signal is split, resulting in clear, noise-free performance throughout the house. Power supply included.

What's Included

  • 1GHz RF Bi-Directional Amplifier
  • Power supply
  • More Info


    Each time you split or divide the RF signal to feed all your equipment, you lose about half the power, or 3dB. For example, a passive splitter with 8 ports may have more than 10dB of loss! One way to overcome this loss is to install an amplifier. However, this solution may cause additional problems if the original signal exceeds the amplifier's rated capacity. But thanks to the high 20dB forward gain, the 1GHz RF Bi-Directional Amplifier offers more than enough support to handle the demand. Plus, integrated 20dB adjustable attenuation allows you to control the signal without over-amplifying the TVs. Example: If you hear buzzing when type is superimposed on the TV screen, like on commercials that display a phone number, then you have an over-amplified signal.

    Unlike standard amplifiers, this model was constructed with a diplex filter to separate the forward and return path, allowing it to send and receive without any signal loss.

    Additional Amplifiers Available
    A 1GHz 1X1 RF Bi-Directional Amplifier is also available with 15dB of gain.

    Steve -- anchorage, Alaska   7/11/2009
    I first bought this unit on 7-25-2005 and it is still working great. All cable channels are clear with no pixelizing and the cable modem never looses its connection. I just hope they continue to carry them so if for any unexpected need I can still get one. Thanks
