Quick Links

The TVPRAMP1R is designed specifically to improve the
performance of outdoor antennas in low signal strength areas,
extending antenna range to give you the most channels and best
reception possible. The TVPRAMP1R is engineered for digital
signals, so it outperforms old preamps made for analog.
Preamplifier Installation
1. Set the VHF/UHF and FM TRAP switches on the
bottom of the preamplifier.
By default, the preamplifier is set
to work with a single, combined
VHF/UHF antenna. If you want
to use it with separate VHF and
UHF antennas, use a small flathead screwdriver to set the switch
on the bottom of the preamplifier to SEPARATE. (The switch is
protected by a weatherproof cover that you'll have to remove
first.)
The preamplifier's FM Trap is set
to ON by default. If you would
like to turn it off, use a small
flathead screwdriver to set this
switch to OFF. (The switch is protected by a weatherproof cover
that you'll have to remove first.)
NOTE: For best perfomance, keep the FM trap in the ON
position. If you use your antenna for FM as well as for TV
broadcasts, switch the FM trap off. Please note, however,
that switching the FM trap off may affect TV reception
performance.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the weatherproof covers for these
switches are back in place before you mount the preamplifier
to your antenna mast.
2. Mount the preamplifier to your antenna mast.
Position the U-bolt on the
antenna mast where you want
to mount the preamplifier. Make
sure you mount it within easy
reach.
Put the preamplifier on the
U-bolt as shown. Then place
the washers on both ends, followed by the nuts.
NOTE: For best results, mount the preamplifier as close to
the antenna as possible.
3. Slide the weather boots over the antenna
downlead(s).
Attach F-connectors to the
coaxial cable(s) if necessary.
4. Connect the antenna downlead(s) to your
antenna(s).
Leave enough slack in the cable(s) to form a drain loop.
You can secure the coaxial downleads to the mast with
weatherproof tape or cable ties.
Slide the weather boot(s) over the cable connector(s) and boot
collar(s) on the antenna(s).

5. Connect the other end(s) of the antenna
downlead(s) to the preamplifier.
If you're using separate UHF
and VHF antennas, connect
the separate downleads to
their dedicated jacks on the
preamplifier.
If you're using a combined
UHF/VHF antenna, connect the
single downlead to the UHF/
COMBINED INPUT jack on the
preamplifier.
Slide the weather boot(s) over
the cable connector(s) and boot
collar(s) on the preamplifier.
6. Connect to the power injector and TV/digital
converter box.
Connect the downlead cable
from the preamplifier to the TO
ANT jack on the power injector.
Make sure your TV or digital
converter box is turned off. Then
attach the power injector's built-
in coaxial cable to the antenna
input jack on your TV or digital
converter box.
7. Plug the power injector's power cord into a
standard wall outlet or surge protector.
The power injector must be
plugged in INSIDE your house.
Note: This power unit should
be plugged in so that it stays
vertical or lies flat.
