I can also take photos of mine that are blown up IF this photo can't be enlarged enough. Sorry, could not post the enlarged photo. Thank-You. Susie
    I went to search for schematics of the CM-7777 and CM-7778 to do a component comparison and did not find any on the web so no luck with your question but.......

    I did find a forum dedicated to this and talking about the CM-7777 having to much gain (30db) vs the 7778 having 16db. Here is the related thread
    http://www.dtvusaforum.com/dtv-hdtv-...cm-7778-a.html

    In there they also mentioned an adjustable attenuator (pad) http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=TVA-20 which has a range from 0 to 20db

    They also mentioned an adjustable amplifier like this one http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp...u=716079001809

    and another good thread on the CM-7777

    http://www.dtvusaforum.com/dtv-hdtv-...cm-7777-a.html

    Last, did you try this

    https://www.tvfool.com/index.php?opt...pper&Itemid=29

    Great tool to estimate signals from multiple locations to your address

    So I am guessing you are having an overload issue due to the high gain of the CM-7777 amp?????

    Wow, sorry you went to so much trouble over my silly problem but it isn't solved yet. I did use TV Fool.com etc. Yes, Channel master says that I am overloading the incoming signal so that NO channel shows up. I just wanted the best but I do agree now that even the best isn't the best LOL. OK, today I hooked up a line distribution amp to the two TV's. Now this gave each of the TV lines a 7db gain and I got 30 channels compaired to the normal 10 without anything. NOW,as far as I have figured in my head, I need a total of 15 to 20 db to hit my target of 51 to 69 channels.
    OK, we know that 30 db was way overboard and we know that 7 db started getting us in a good forward direction again. I also believe that once I connect a good Balun at the antenna, it will make a world of difference. I have an indoor cheapy Radio Shack Balun in use cause I broke the other good one, and it is water proof as it seems to have had a rubber molded around the electronic part so that only the male cable end sticks out. I do have another 'GOOD' balun 75 to 300 ohm adapter that weirdly enough, I got with my new, unused, 1992 ColorMaster Heavy Duty Rotor. I also received in the rotor box, instructons for assembling this HUGE tv antenna and I think they decided to store away the rotor and tossed the 'balun' in the box as well as it and all rotor clamps etc. were in factory sealed bags. My luck for 40.00 + $20 shipped ( E-BAY). The new cheap Channel Master rotors that are light weight and half plastic retail for $130 at the Samsung tv repair shop in Port Orange on Nova rd.!

    BTW, I am using a very quality homemade DB-4 where I used 4 guage copper wire for the 'V's. And a very nice 'radiator' behind the ?arrays?.

    Thank-You so much for the info hun! I will check it out later today. Have a great night and a better day tomorrow! Susan

    I can only succeed with the help of a knowledgeable strong minded men. I am finding them here for sure. BTW, I haven't mentioned electronics terms that we didn't already know when we was youngsters wantin' to watch cartoons except, today we have the AMP/PRE AMP>( antenna, antenna rotator, antenna signal, etc.)! For those who think I'm intelligent on the subject, I'm greatful and speechless but I don't go it alone. Never misjudge a woman's learning capabilities. Oh boy! I must apologize, I left out that me and my hubby used to be big HAM radio station operators out of Cali back in the day,but, those days are for the younger more agile crowd now. Our days of working with those huge beams and towers are behind us now. But then again, that has nothing to do with TELEVISION except that a TV is strictly a receiver and I need to get a good strong signal to it. In the days of the air waves, the challenge always has been to see just how far we could reach! And it is STILL, how far can I reach to get a nice clear TV signal. Withing a 200 mile radius, I have a chance of collection a total of 69 ( omg, I love that number 6 9 ooooo baby LOL) channels. That includes the one or two just over the Georgia border. Thanks anyway hun. Susie Q

    You sure brought back some memories! My favorite beam was the Moonraker! I am happy to share a few of the ones we used( not our photos/ from photobucket). OK, I also included a CB/Ham/Scanner antenna that we have in our attic now(discone). I love antennas and my husband may not know crap about computers or even how to use them, he sure can rig a ham radio station in no time!!!!!!!!! IT is all a challenge to anyone. Like a contest or you have goals( my goal now is to watch free tv LOL). He is not impressed with computers at all. That's ok, I'm smarter than he is anyway LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!! He said that if we rig another station, it will use a simple dipole. I agree! Susan

    I have this pre-amp, 10G212, and my version says Archer which of course is Radio Shack. I however, don't have the amp that mounts near the antenna!!!!!!!!!! I will have to search for this item and maybe Antenna Craft will have the part I need.

    Found on a forum>>I believe I have the Radio Shack version of the Antenna Craft 10G212 and I've had good results with it.


    I could add a few connectors as well to drop the db's so the 7777 would then work to bring them back up to par. Kind like using the 'pad' connectors.

    Found this>>>>>
    That is what I did for my house (big antenna with a CM7777) so the antenna system could withstand multiple splits before the signal actually reaches the TVs.

    For every 'connection//coax interruption' I use it should cause approx. 3.5db loss.

    Wait just a sec, where is your CM-7777 mounted.

    You already are having overdrive issues and you want to add more amplification???

    I'm not following your logic? (oh good now I'm Mr. Spock)

    Yes, sorry I left you in Dr. Spock mode but NO, I haven't mounted the CM7777 since I removed it a week ago since I found out it was over driving my signals. Don't worry you are good to go. Just have a seat over here>>>>>>> and relax. Currently I have a DB-4/ 30' up w/ no rotor on it yet ( as it is all test mode) before I really put it together permanently. I have 48' of new and unused military mast and the base. I have the rotor as I have shown you earlier. The only think holding me back now from installing this, is that I need to fine tune the pre-amplification. I cannot mount the CM7777 yet with out knowing that I have the right stuff this time, as in the 'signal padding' parts. I did a lot of research with the sources you brought me! I'm tellin' ya, I love studying anything to do with air waves! I thought about becoming a member on that antenna site > http://www.dtvusaforum.com, but there was ALL guys that I could see. I don't want to be the only female on a forum and end up showing those guys up with my calculation and theory injections on linear, bi-linear and the uses of Diplexers when stacking and co-phasing antennas. Then you have the mathematical description of one-dimensional waves, wave equation, wave forms, and amplitude and modulation. Then you have the Phase velocity and group velocity and OMG! the waves!!!>> You have the sinusoidal waves, plane waves, standing waves and their physical properties!The transmission is very important as well. Then you have absorption and reflection and the interference media that disrupt the signal or waves! Oh my, I could go on and on because this subject really turns me on! I think I will stop there and maybe not register that manly site! Besides, I am finding it very comfortable discussing my affairs right here! Anyway, I have to go toss myself onto my tanning bed! Talk after while when I'm much darker............... Susan

    I'm sorry, I forgot to add that I have that line distribution amp hooked up. I believe it was a ATT television service piece. I have since learned that those adorable cable guys really use these in their line of work! I have to admit that I found it in my brother's box of odd and end cable stuff he let me look through! IF I can find a more powerful one than this, I may not need that CM7777 pre-amp. I would trade it for something I can use here though, like a CM7778 LMAO!
