Check the clearance table in the tech section of the store. I found the small boxes in the middle of the table behind other merchandise. Link provided for product info only.

Hold on there...I have one and it does help. For instance...when I take it off...I get a patchy bit of pixelation in the picture since the signal is generally weak for one of the stations I watch. I put this on and it did enhance the signal strength enough to get a clean crisp picture. So, while it may not be a fix for all situations, it may in fact boost the signal just enough to improve your weak station channels. Peace

P.S. None in my area. Zero inventory.

Remember an amp only helps if you already have a good signal. To make an extended run or to split. If you have a bad signal, it'll just make the bad signal stronger.

I often wonder if these have a placebo effect. I have tried tried plugging and unplugging them on boosters that came with flat antennas but do not see a difference. It would think a powered antenna in the attic would be a much better solution.

There are lots of factors and sets of circumstances that make these effective or not. I have had mixed results personally - not just signal dependent but TV dependent as well, but at this price you've little to risk other than a couple dollars and time.

Or you simply don't have what it takes to properly mate the two connectors and there was some spillage. The amp made up for that. nod

I already explained why that is in a post above. Amps don't make a bad signal good. It amplifies the entire signal, including the noise. So it only helps extend an already good signal for a long run or a split. If you have a bad signal, it'll just make a stronger bad signal.

The other thing to think about is that a too strong signal is just as bad as a too week signal. That's why there are also attenuators to reduce the signal level. It has to be just right.
