DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF TV, AM, FM ANTENNA BOOSTER
While TV and radio signal passes through the air with minimal trouble, every object it meets between the tower and your mobile device causes some degree of interference. Geographical elements, such as hills, mountains, and trees can cause major signal issues, as well as building materials, like metal siding, concrete, and wire mesh. Additionally, the increased use of energy efficient products, such as radiant barriers and window tinting, have contributed to the degree of TV and radio (AM and FM) reception problems in new homes. While either one of these factors are enough to cause dropped calls and poor reception, the combination of the two all but guarantees problems. Booster is designed to deal with both of these factors. A TV, AM and FM antenna booster were developed to address the two factors that cause poor TV and radio reception. It is designed to amplify a weak outside signal and bypass any obstructions to provide a strong inside signal to an area that was originally lacking. The system works by mounting an outside antenna in a location that currently has signal, which is typically on the roof or with a tall pole. The signal is passed from the outside antenna, by a cable to a signal amplifier inside the building. Once the signal is amplified, it is then sent to an inside antenna, where it is broadcast out to the area which needs better reception. This work is aim at designing a multipurpose antenna booster that can be used in amplifying the signal of TV and radio (AM and FM) receptions.
