Amplifing a radio station

Post by willy3486 on Thu Sep 27, 2012 11:53 pm

I am wondering something about antennas and radios. I picked up a new Blonder tongue 550-50 distribution amp today. IT is the type used in buildings with a lot of TVs like hospitals and hotels. I have been wondering if I could hook this up to my old TV antenna in my shop so I can pick up better reception on am and shortwave. I have always just used a antenna only and not a amp. As far as this amp I haven't even hooked it up or looked at the specs. It was a new one that was surplus. Will these only work with tv signals or is there a chance it might work with radios as well?

I quickly hooked it up a few days ago. I really couldn't tell if it helped or not.

Blonder Tongue 550-50 has a bandpass of 47 to 550MHz so not useful at AM or SW frequencies.
