Maybe because of the LTE and FM filters?

Depends what freq range you are on and what is the signal that you are listening for ??
Nope, it's the noise figure of it.

The antenna it came with also has a noise figure of ≤3dB. Not sure if that includes the amp's noise or not Is that good or should I get an antenna that has less noise?

We need to bring back the fairness doctrine so political bias like this won't happen. It's like they're not even trying to be inconspicuous about their bias. That was completely obvious. They're pushing this agenda and the story wasn't even related to video games. I know I don't usually talk politic...

At least Will Ferrell has the ability to form jokes other than the five that are hardcoded into his AI.

It is some nobody, Ferrell sucks and is a buddy to all of them just another liberal mouthpiece. For Christ's sake, his involvement on the shows has nothing to do with politics. He literally just did stand-up comedy and an interview. All in character, by the way. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

Perhaps. Maybe that's why they're keeping it a secret, so that there's nobody targeting him.

Re: Suggestion: Add a Free-to-air Satellite discussion board.

Seems like it would be very appropriate for the DX and Engineering forum. I had an uncle who used to watch Russian television from K band or X band. He was a trip, knew more about world politics in the middle of the Upper Peninsula than anyone I knew. Thing is, many DXers don't do FTA and vice vers...

Re: Suggestion: Add a Free-to-air Satellite discussion board.

It’s free over the air satellite television and is used in the European countries mainly but is also available in the United States and Canada as well, the difference is the signals are not encrypted on free-to-air Satellite and actually it’s pretty cool my brother gets his television in that forma...

Suggestion: Add a Free-to-air Satellite discussion board.

There's many people in Michigan who use FTA satellite (the Satellite Guys board is based in Mich, in fact) so why not make a portion of the forum for FTA Sat?
