        The data on amplifier's label looks good.
        Install it, and post your results.
        Did you receive your power inserter and 230v ac to 15v dc adaptor?

          Yes i got everything.Ive connected it all up but wondering if i would get better results with a 15v psu rather than a 12v.
          When i started with the new antennae i was ranked 3428 in the world and im slowly climbing the ladder. I am now 3132.

          Would a high pass filter benefit the receive or would this just reduce the whole signal reception??

            If you read the lable carefully, the last line (in red) says "15V 3" which means tha amplifier will work good on any dc voltage from 15-3 (=12v) to 15+3 (=18v). So your 12v dc supply is perfect for this amplifier.
            Would a high pass filter benefit the receive or would this just reduce the whole signal reception??
            Filter is beneficial if very strong TV or Mobile phone signals are present, otherwise it is useless. Do you see any TV or Mobile Transmitting towers within 500 meters of your location?

            The practical way to find if filter is beneficial is to install a filter and see if there is an improvement. If there is no improvement, then remove the filter.

                    Looks great range for you. My cantenna is located in the attic and I am only receiving 97nm based on my flightradar data page and best results so far. Located in the West Midlands UK.
