using that patch I can tune all 4 VHF stations :)
This tuner seems to need a very strong signal and seems to be 
extremely sensitive to noise: using
and indoor antenna I can tune channels only if the amplifier is
completely off; on the other side using the small antenna
provided in the package I can't tune anything at all.
Thanks for all your work!
