The amp is followed by a splatter, I probably should
label the amp as a splitter pre-amp - it does not
provide multiple outputs.

We are in the woods and without both the antenna AND
the amp we only receive one channel well and a few
poorly.  With both the antenna and amp we receive
7 channels well.

I am doing some experiments with passive stubs and
may order a 6m notch filter if tinlee.com who makes
them responds to my inquiry - it's worth $30. to
solve the problem.
