What is? Amplifier

Jargon Buster: Amplifier

If you are struggling to receive a TV signal it can often it can be down to a poor aerial. In some rural areas, sometimes an amplifier is recommended and it does exactly what it’s name implies by amplifying the whole signal. However, whilst many people think it’s the easiest way to fix the problem, because it amplifies the interference as well as the correct signal, in many cases an amplifier (also called a signal booster) can often make things worse.
