Folks: Ever since the U.S. went digital, I've had trouble with TV reception. It's the law of unintended consequences working again. At least when the signal was analog, I could see the picture, even though it may have been distorted. Now when the weather is bad, for example, a storm front moving in, I can loose some channels altogether. I live in eastern Idaho and we get the brunt of the jet-stream when in drops down to ground level. So I have decided to replace my existing TV antenna (which is now on my roof) with a new, first-class system mounted on a meteorological tower. I just don't want an antenna on my roof any more. Plus I'm going to replace the roof soon anyway. I want to install an antenna rotor and an amplifier. My problem is the required distance that I need to locate the met tower in a place that is inconspicuous. Can I have a 200 to 300 foot run of coax cable to my TV? I will have power to the met tower to run the rotor and an amplifier. And I suppose I will have to install a lightening rod on the tower. Can I place the amp at the tower location? Is this set-up feasible? Can you make any suggestions as to hardware? Is there such a thing as a low signal loss cable that is better than the stuff that you can usually buy in the big-box stores? Thanks in advance for your feedback.
