    Default FREE FREE FREE to a good home!!!!!! Televisions, etc.

    For starters I have two very nice and well taken care of 57" televisions free. One is a Sony and the other is a Magnavox. I recently bought two flat screens and put the other TV's aside in case anyone needed a nice TV either for their children, man cave, den, poolside, etc. etc. The remote for the Magnavox for some odd reason got pissed and just stopped working for no reason. The Sony Trinitron is High Def and I have watched movies from the computer and used it as a computer screen ( just to test out that feature) and it is awesome and remote is fine. I will demonstrate the TV's etc if you like. I just want to see them go to someone that can either use them, or you can hand them to someone who can. Like I said, FREE for the taking.

    I am in need of a stereo (receiver/amp ONLY) no speakers... if you know someone with one sitting around. I am also looking for an old TV antenna, antenna amp, line distribution amp, antenna Baluns etc. Got an old CB laying around? I have a marine radio for free if anyone needs one. I also have a black and white monitor, a VHS security time delay recorder, camera switcher (4 camera) and I need that gone. They are like new as well. I have a few other stuff like car ramps, etc. I am looking for a home for. No money, just want to help out for those who can use these items.

    IF you are in need of something, let me know, I may be able to help you out. Thanks for your time in reading about my available goodies. Remember, Christmas is just around the corner.

    In case you wonder, I have NO cameras to go with the monitor and recorder. But they are not costly. Radio Crap, I mean Shack will or can get them.

    I have some aluminum foil lying around.

    Seriously though, I do have some TV amps at home (two port, 4 port, and 8 port) if you need one. Just holler and I'd be happy to meet anfter Thanksgiving to give you one.

    I actually have a NEW Channel Master 7777 available as it is too potent for my system. Maybe we can trade for a more milder amp system if you like. I would also like a 'line distribution amp' to recover 'line loss' as well> maybe 2 or 3 port. I have car ramps and what have ya, to find homes for also. Please do get in touch when you are available sweetie! I can use an old receiver 2 channel stereo amp.Thanks so much! Susie Q

    Never heard of a Channel master 7777. I would have to assume with that name that it is a 4 port amp with 7db of amplification per port (which would be a little higher than the normal 4db of amplification on a 4 port amp)? Why do you say it is "too potent" for your system? It's all about getting the proper signal level to your TV. In the digital word, ideally you want -5dbm to -10dbm hitting your TV or box. If signal is good at the house box (about 0dbm) and you have 4 outlets or less, a 4 port splitter is all you should need (no amplification). If you have low levels at your house box but Brighthouse says it's within specs, then a 4 port amp with 4db of amplification should be the ticket.

    I worked for BH for 9 years so if you have any cable questions feel free to ask.

    I don't need anything in trade. These amps are just some that made it home and are sitting in my attic.

    Are you using this for cable TV? If so, then with 30db of amplification you would be over-driving the crap out of that signal. even with a 4 port splitter you would still have 23db of gain so way too much power hitting a TV or box. with a digital signal, too much power is just as bad as too little power.

    As an FYI, all amps are linear (unlike splitters) so we just say 2/4/8 port.

    Using a homemade DB-4 antenna( my '8' =V's are 4 guage copper) 30 foot up with 150 run of coax from the antenna to the TV/house. I just want to gain back my db loss and I am sure I will gain over 51 channels. I had 51 channels crisp and clear at 50 feet for a test at 15 feet. Now I have 12 crisp channels at 30 feet up on 150 ft. run of Quad shield burial buried 20" down. Getting ready to go 45 feet up w/ a rotor on Military mast/ Just want to get my 'amp/pre-amp' decision correct before my antenna goes up permanent. So, do you think one of those pictured could solve my problems? OH BOY! I almost forgot, I need a quality low loss Balun. I have been studying these and I don't think I want to build one simple as they are. What do you think about a 1:1 Balun? I found a site where someone removed the guts and wired direct with great results?????? Without any magnets???? I don't understand. I have a radio shack balun in use now but that is when I lost channels. I have a nice one that I got with my brand new in the box 1992 Color Master heavy duty antenna rotor for $39.00 on ebay! BTW, they don't make them like this anymore... ALL aluminum body and the indoor controller seems to weigh about 7 pounds! I have to download photos of the antenna I just remembered that I have on my memory card yet! Thanks/ Sue

    I'll be honest with you, while my cable knowledge is great, my antenna knowledge is not. 150ft run of Quad shield (assuming RG-6 though you may be running RG-11 which would deliver even less loss) should have a loss from about 1.5 db in the lower freqs to about 4.5 db in the upper freqs so yes, with a 30db gain amp you may still be over driving the hell out of the signal. But here's the great news, I don't want anything in return for the amp so there is nothing to lose (except two minutes of installation time) to see if it helps and if it does, you're good to go! Just let me know how many outlets you are activating in your home and that will decide which amp you need. Once I return from my cruise I'll be happy to meet you at your choice of location to deliver the amp.

    It is RG-6 and I will try R2D2's suggestion and try to 'pad' the amp and get back with you on the results. Enjoy your cruise. If I can 'pad' the pre-amp, I will be fine. If not, I will do some research and see if I can turn my CM7777 into a CM7778. I just need to figure out what the difference is between them. Maybe it is a 'choke' of some sort inside. The casing looks the same on the outside. I will try to find an interior look. I have the interior look of the 7777 model. Quite a simple pcb set-up. You folks have been so sweet to be concerned and help as you have. I'm sorry that I didn't expect much, but then again, that was from the experience I had on other sites. I love CC and everyone I have had the pleasure to mingle with! You are all too kind! Thanks. Susie.

    TRIVIA QUESTION>>>> What do you see here that can be changed to reduce the 30 db that this pre-amp pulls in? Is it the size of a magnet as found in Baluns? This is a CM 7777 board. 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 could use the car ramps, but do not have anything to trade at this time. My life is really on the run right now. Medical issue with a family member and just to many thing needing done, without enough time to get them done for sure! I also think I know someone that could use a TV for their man cave. The man cave will be a surprise to him. His wife told him she was setting the room up as a romper room for the kids. He is not allowed in until after Christmas!

    Not looking for trades. Just looking to make some room here. The ramps and what ever else you want are yours. Go ahead and PM me when you want to pick them up and I will PM you my number.
