No. The frequencies for these systems are within the 54-1000 MHz band, so the signal will pass through and be amplified by the unit. However – the Electroline amplifiers are specifically designed for a cable TVsignal – which generally arrives at the homeat the same level across the spectrum. In comparison – Antenna signals will have a high degree of variation – as the transmission points and original signal strength will be very different for each channel. Channels in close proximity to your home will have a very strong signal, channels faraway will have a weak signal.As a result – our amplifier will can over-amplify an already strong signal. This will not improve the viewing experience. You are better off seeking an amplifier that is specifically built for an antenna application.
