Those are usually bad.

The only place where an amplifier helps is right on the antenna itself,
where it amplifies the signal, not the signal AND all the noise inserted
along the line between the antenna and the wall plug.

Make sure you get a proper "ugly" tin can splitter if you do not want to
climb on your roof, it will give you a better results than a
splitter/amp combination from the supermarket.
