Ignore that link, no stock. Will try variable attenuator first then look at new amplifier, that one you mention is £11 on Amazon.

It does not have a 4G filter, and you do not need a digital bypass, as that is for Sky satellite systems.

 

The Amazon one should be fine, but you may still need the attenuator if the output level is too much.

 

As you have said, try the attenuator first.

That should be fine, as it includes a 4G filter, its the same make as the Amazon one but it has rather a lot of signal gain, and far more outputs than you need. Try the attenuator first.

 

PS, Its best not to post direct links to e-commerce sites, just the description of the item, and where it come from.

The connector is always useful to have for fault finding, as you can temporarily bypass the amplifier, just in case that is making matters worse.

Plenty of things to try over the weekend Smiley Wink

It would bring your system up-to-date, as you no longer need VHF features, that was a very long time ago.

It is on my Amazon wishlist so will order in the next week or so. As you say, it's needs updating.

Going to pick up the variable attenuator in the next couple of hours so will try that first then the female connection if still not good.

It's made no difference, change strength to 80, 70 and in the 60s too.
