    Hi guys, I live in the City with tall buildings and tree's all over the place. I usually can get 5000ft with the parabolic reflectors if I am lucky.

    Was thinking of picking up the DBS Itelite antenna (unboosted). I've read that sometimes the boosted setups have interference?.

    Anyhow for my application would I be able to get another 2500-3000ft in range with these?

    Also do the cables get threaded on?. Looking for a solution where I can hook up things fast.

    Get the 3w amps along with the biggest DBS antenna if you want range in the city. I can get 2-3 miles out pointing out a window from inside my house with that setup.

    The boosters make a huge difference.
