    One of the most important improvements in this year's Televes antennas is T-Force technology. T-Force is Televes' brand name for its MMIC manufacturing process, which makes its amplifiers and other electronics even better, cleaner, and more powerful than before.

    So, ok. Let's back up a little bit and explain ...

    Antennas are crucial to any cord cutterís setup.
    With the right antenna for your location, you can get the big four broadcast networks (FOX, NBC, ABC, and CBS) for free in uncompressed HD TV. That gives you the majority of the top programs on TV.

    And while using an antenna will fail to get you cable channels like ESPN, youíll be surprised just how much live sports youíll get on the four major broadcast networks. For example, you can get all your local team's ...

    And then there were four. Rounding out the 2017 lineup for Televes antennas, we present the DATBOSS LR. This is the antenna for people who want extremely long range UHF performance but don't need VHF (or do need VHF filtering.) It's the way to go if you want a high level of performance but a little bit smaller size than the DATBOSS LR MIX, which adds VHF reception.

    And, of course, you know we have a full review of it just waiting for you.

    Leave it to Solid Signal to give you the ultimate resource for antennas. Other sites give you confusing graphs and charts, while we give you a city-by-city guide of what's available, what sports teams are on free TV, and the kind of insider info you'll need if you're thinking of cutting the cord.

    Our cord-cutting guide has tons of useful information collected by our researchers on every city we've looked at so far. It's our goal to eventually cover every single metropolitan area in the US, but for now we've reached 42 ...

    The powerhouse antenna with the funny name is BACK and better than ever! The new Televes DATBOSS MIX UHF/VHF antenna may look familiar but it's been completely revised from last year's model. Every inch (or centimeter since this is European-made) has been reviewed to make sure it is the best design for US television viewing.

    The big tech change is the addition of T-Force amplification which uses MMIC circuitry for the cleanest possible results. All of this means that in testing, we saw up to 5dB improvement in unamplified gain and up to 10dB improvement in amplified gain, with a drop in noise figure. That's a lot of technical stuff and if you aren't sure what it means, it should give you better reception than before.

    The Televes DATBOSS Mix combines 60-mile range, optional amplifier, and LTE filtering to give you the best possible antenna experience. It's made by Televes, one of the leading antenna manufacturers and recognized worldwide as a leader in technology and quality.

    This one's easy to answer.
    The drip loop is a slack bit of cable that sits lower than the rest. The whole purpose is to let water pile up at the bottom and drip off. If your cables were tight, water from outside could travel down the wire and get straight into an outlet or onto your electronic devices. If water were to get into an outlet, it could start a fire (ironic, right) by making sparks along the wet areas.

    Drip loops and ground blocks are the two easiest ways to make sure that your home is protected. They may not look very attractive but they do their jobs well. Every installation should have a proper drip loop so that water doesn't travel where it shouldn't. Even if you live in a dry climate, it's going to rain sometime. You need that drip loop.
