Anyone know of any digital tv boosters that are waterproof for outdoor use, and dont require mains power? I saw this one on amazon but not sure if it requires power source.

Thanks in Advance

what you probably want is a mast head amp - they take a 5v feed through the coax IIRC...

Hi niallmoran, will that masthead do the job i need. am i right in thinking, you need to plug it in somewhere in the home but the current travels back up the coaxial to power the unit?

yup - i think you plug in a transformer in the house and the 5v then gets fed up the coax to the masthead amplifier....i also think some set top boxes (like my topfield) can supply the 5v without a transformer.
