Wanted to give our over the air TV antennas a little boost. Came across this circuit to see if it would work. Ihave already done several instructables about antennas, though it would be nice to something a little different.

Antenna instructables: http://www.instructables.com/id/Antennas-TV-Wifi-and-etc/

Notice: This amp is for use with indoor antennas only where there is safety from lightning or other power sources. Also can not guarantee you will have the same results with your amp.

Step 1: What's needed.

2 - NTE107 rf transistors.
5 - 100 to 120 pf capacitors
1 - 1k resistor
2 - 47k resistors
1 - 3.3k resistor
1 - 10 - 12 volt power source such as a walwart. This project shoul not use much power.
Assorted wires for connections.
1 -  Breadboard to prototype the project.
I have a TV card for computer and dish cable connected with it. but seemingly signal strength is low. pictures are not steady and sometime colorless. can i use these circuits to boost the strength of signal from dish cable?
<p>There are a lot of variables. Check with your provider first.</p>
Great project! Does this amp work for digital TV signals? Thanks.
The digital tv antenna is the same old antenna with a fancier name, Same is true of the amps. Signals are in the same way but are decoded differently in the tuner.
