May01 02:09 I may have abused the AC plug, because I unplug when not using; I don't want the pack to get too hot./cd (172.56.4.45)
May01 02:08 Sometimes when I unplug the power pack, there is no difference; other times, a HUGE drop-off./cd (172.56.4.45)
May01 02:07 This is strange, but the problem MAY be the AC plug, because..../cdEL96 (172.56.4.45)
May01 01:58 [01:54] I also have the older model channel master 7777 and DXed with it for two years before I got the RCA TVPRAMP1Z preamp. Both preamps are work about the same - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.147.81)
May01 01:54 I have been using the RCA TVPRAMP1Z Preamp for over a year with no problems DXing with it. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 https://www.amazon.com/RCA-TVPRAMP1Z-Preamplifier-Outdoor-Antenna/dp/B003P92D9Y (68.105.147.81)
May01 01:50 [00:08] Made in China like the older model is. The older 7777 preamp used to be made in the USA before channel master was bought out by China - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.147.81)
May01 00:21 Actually I crimped on one cable, but it still screws on. Had to trim the cable./cd (172.56.4.45)
May01 00:20 I have the old kind with 3 terminals on the amp./cd (172.56.4.45)
May01 00:19 I did use screw-ons up there, otherwise the cable would fall off easily. I do have strain relief./cdEL96 (172.56.4.45)
May01 00:08 Is the newer 7777 manufactured in China, or is it another foreign country? - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
May01 00:07 Because screw-ons are for indoor use - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
May01 00:06 Because scew-ons are for indoor use - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
May01 00:04 I hope you did't use screw-ons at the antenna preamplifier on the mast too - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
May01 00:03 As I haven't had a newbie TV station in 11 months or so, I ain't gonna panic./cdEL96 (172.56.4.45)
May01 00:02 Good news is that it only takes about 10 minutes to set up my trip antenna, if true DX comes up./cd (172.56.4.45)
May01 00:02 The more than likely that is the problem, a scew-on which caused the center wire to pull out from the connector - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
Apr30 23:59 I had screw-on's, but was checking with other easy cables./cd (172.56.4.45)
Apr30 23:58 The FM antenna gets the low channels fine./cd (172.56.4.45)
Apr30 23:57 It's too hot to check everything out. Maybe next weekend & I can compare signals with my portable A'craft C290./cd (172.56.4.45)
Apr30 23:57 What type of coax connectors are on the power inserter (screw-on, crimp, compression)? - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
Apr30 23:56 cd: Do you own a AC/DC volt meter? - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
Apr30 23:56 ...and "non" when fiddling with the cables./cd (172.56.4.45)
Apr30 23:55 I think it's only the power pack, JAW. It was alternating between working and "non" (172.56.4.45)
Apr30 23:47 I can't see the preamplifier being bad unless it was exposed to 140+F - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
Apr30 23:45 Are you sure the adaptor is getting 120vac input and 15vdc out into the power inserter? - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
Apr30 23:33 Looks like either the 7777 or a lead in cable has given up the ghost./cd (172.56.4.45)
Apr30 22:50 I did check at your request; nothing, but I may still be having issues with the CM7777 power pack./cdEL96 (172.56.4.45)
