    I was wondering has anybody used one them antenna power booster for better reception? I live in Vacaville ca in what is called the no reception bowl!it seems just about all station has bad reception,unless you listen to spanish stations and i don't speak or understand spanish!although they have some pretty good beats sometimes. the stations are hard to receive mostly during the day! Of course i've heard that during the day the atmosphere plays a big part of this problem.just wondering if those boosters work or i'm sh*t out of luck? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I've used 'em before. They actually work pretty well. If you're in a remote area where the signal is fading in and out, pushing the "boost" button will bring the station in so you can listen to it. It will also boost any noise on the antenna input, but it's better than listening to nothing. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I think I paid around $20 for the ones I used. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
