Is this a good signal amplifier?

www.radioshack.com has one for the antenna and inside the house. It says for TV/HDTV/VCR/FM Antenna mounted high gain signal. Model number is 15-2507 and it cost $59.99 should I buy it and try it.

With any OTA antenna amplifier it is best to amplify the signal at the antenna so that you don't amplify the noise. I have the 1507 and it works quite well. The advantage is that it can be adjusted for how much amplification you need.

GJP33usa,
NO! Go to www.solidsignal.com and buy the Channel Master CM7777. It is a mast mounted amp. It has 2 - 75 ohm inputs one for VHF and one for UHF and 1 - 75 ohm out, a switch to combine both UHF and VHF to 1 input and only 2.0 db noise for 23db gain on UHF, 2.8 db noise for 26 DB gain for VHF. With shipping it will cost less than radio shaft.

You need to remove the "," at the end of your link for it to work.
