Are you looking to improve your TV and FM reception. Do it with an amplifier this page shows signal booster called Pre-amps from Channel Master, Winegard and Antennacraft
Pre-Amplifiers good for all digital and HDTV off air signals
A Pre-Amplifier (pre-amp) is a mast or antenna mounted amplifier used primarily to Boost the signal level while not amplifying noise. The objective of any antenna installation is to deliver enough signal to the TV set to override the noise . A "weak" signal is one that is not strong enough to override the level of the noise in the set. Another obstacle is the signal loss incurred while traveling through the transmission line connecting the antenna to the TV set. An antenna that has acceptable gain at the antenna tapoffs but encounters excessive loss due to long cable runs will also deliver a poor quality picture to the TV set due to not enough signal makes it to the set to override the noise level. A pre-amp would be used to compensate for the losses in the transmission line as well as the noise level of the set.
All pre-amps have a power supply that plugs into an AC outlet inside the house that lowers the voltage and sends it up the coax to power the amplifier which is mounted up near the antenna. The benefit is that you get amplification before any line loss or noise and you don't have to run 117 AC up to your roof. NOTE: Don't install a regular splitter between the power supply and the pre-amp or you will short circuit the system and it won't work. You can install a special splitter that is power passive on only one port. Or put a DC Block on the outputs that don't run to the power supply. Also you can't put any type of matching transformers between the power supply and the pre-amp.
use a preamp on your antenna to increase the signal to noise ratio. Generally the higher the gain the better the results but sometimes if there is a strong local station you may want a lower gain preamp or one that just amplifies UHF and passes the VHF.

MATV MAST MOUNTED PREAMPLIFIERS TiTAN
The Titan range of mast mounted amplifiers has been completely reengineered and updated. These amplifiers represent the ultimate in preamplifier performance. They are designed for use as an ultra low noise, ultra high gain preamplifier for deepest fringe applications and MATV headend applications. Their very high signal handling also makes them suitable for use as a mast mounted, ultra low noise distribution amplifier for use in small MATV systems. All models feature 75 Ohm input and output connections in line with modern headend engineering practice. Two models are available.
CM-7777 TITAN 2 Antenna Preamplifier - High Gain SOLD OUT Use AP8275 Above
The Channel Master television antenna booster (preamplifier) will amplify digital and HD signals received by your antenna. This antenna preamplifier is a high gain, low noise preamplifier used for weak signal areas to allow a weak signal that is present at the antenna to be amplified to a viewable strength. This TV antenna preamplifier works best for persons in weak signal areas and is subject to overdrive if used in areas with fairly strong signals. In stronger signal areas our medium gain preamplifier, the CM 7778 is a better choice. Preamplifiers are also used if you anticipate distributing your signal with a digital splitter to multiple outlets throughout your house as splitters reduce the signal strength available at each output.

A Distribution Amplifier is a type of amplifier that is mounted indoors, usually in a central location, and is used to "distribute" signal to multiple locations. In areas with very weak signals you would need to use a pre-amplifier first to boost the signal levels up to a point where they can be distributed.
Distribution amplifiers are available in many configurations. There are distribution amps designed to cover just off air frequencies and those designed to cover off air and cable frequencies. Channel Master offers the following types of distribution amplifiers: Single output models, Multiple output models (2, 4, and 8 outputs), Broadband models (covers wide range of frequencies, ie...50 to 900 MHz), and Split Band models (designed to cover select frequencies, ie...VHF, 54 - 216 MHz; UHF, 470 to 900 MHz)
