    If the signal it's boosting is not good to start with, it won't help much...on the other hand, if there's a decent signal outside and nothing inside the house, it might be worth a shot.

    I have a friend that lives in the sticks out here, and he had good things to say about this one. I hear it's a pain to find the right installation point, and you have to follow the directions, but works very well (including with data).

    This works pretty good, I have one and love it. You have to have decent signal outside. The booster amp is the same with all setups, go for the biggest antenna you can afford.

    I ended up choosing that one -

    It was a pain installing, but it does what it is advertised to do and I'm getting a much better signal in the house...
