I do have a signal amplifier, a $25 Radio Shack booster, which I tried
without success. I know there are better amplifiers and better places
to put them in the system, but I have given up on this project and
bought bare-bones cable for $13 a month.
I see in a tvb.org report that cable and satellite penetration covers
91.6% of households (98.8% in Boston/Manchester!), but I wonder how
many of the remaining 8% have dropped off the grid?
