My radio reception is not very good. I know it's easy to make a simple booster, I can't seem to see any circuits on the web, has any one got a nice simple circuit they can email me please ?

Also, my digital freeview at home keeps breaking up, has any one got a cure for this please ?

with thanks.

Freeview breaking up: A new aerial perhaps?

Hate to say it, but you can pick up aerial amplifiers for a tenner, which are probably a better bet unless you're well up on RF work.

Yep, you can get FM boosters dirt cheap. As for Freeview I have found a strong signal is not the answer its the quality that counts. You need a clear signal with no multipath. My box has a signal quality meter built in so its worth checking yours.

My analogue signal has terrible multipath on it but surprisingly enough, the Freeview works ok most of the time.

Yes, I may of been misleading, digital dose handle multipath better than anologue but it still more important than signal strength.

RF amplifiers can be difficult to build if the layout of parts isn't right. If you want to have a go at building a VHF amp., this circuit with PCB layout might be suitable,
