TV antenna on 335

As we get to know all of the ins and outs of our new 335, I have come to a question with which I'll need some help. This question revolves around the TV antenna. Does anyone know if there is a signal booster / amplifier?

While parked in our driveway I get no stations (we are about 40 minutes outside of Grand Rapids MI). Today I hooked up an inexpensive stand alone antenna intended for indoor home use. It has a small amplifier and immediately picked up 11 stations. I hooked up the roof antenna coax cable to the amplifier and was back to 0 stations. I cant believe that a $35 RCA indoor antenna from a local discount store is that much better than the roof top unit.

Am I missing something? Is there an on/off switch, circuit breaker, or other power supply of which I am unaware?

Yes, there is an amplifier. It's a small push button on a white plate that has a 12v connector built in. Mine is in the upper right front cabinet. It hides behind the DVD player. There will be a green light when it's on. Crank up the TV antenna and make sure the switch box is on Antenna and not cable or satellite.

This is what it looks like with a small button to turn on amp and a green led lights when on.
Probably in the back of the cabinet where the switch is loctaed for SAT , Antenna or Cable

I found it! The set up is slightly different - the DVD player is in the radio, and the antenna is stationary always up - but the button is still there and it works. Back up to 11 stations.

Thanks for the responses!

I want one of these.

Wouldn't help Jim, but most of the rest of us could use it.
