I'm in it right now watching TV through the antenna. Booster on with 4 out of 5 bars. Turn microwave on and no problems. I turned the booster off and get 2 out of 5 bars...micro on and no problems. I've never had issues with micro interference. IMO, the booster has nothing to do with it. However, if the coax from the antenna is running really close to the microwave, I can see it interfering.

I highly doubt the microwave is leaking 2.4 ghz the frequency of most units. The TV is most likely getting interference on the AC poser line. Both the TV and the Microwave have switching power supplies. The operation of these supplies spread interference through improper filtering on the AC side. The booster certainly can enter into the picture though powered by 12 v gets that from the converter. I have no real solution to the problem other than replacing the microwave, try another one a see if the problem goes away. As far as Toshiba, I have not seen a Dumount, Zenith or Admiral TV lately so that is what we have.

AS I said in an earlier post, check to find a filter to take the noise out of the ac line, your problem will be over.....

If you have HD, you must be on something other antennae if you are watching HD. My problem is antennae mode in both SD and Digital.
