    Usb powered antenna?

    Does anyone know if it exists? I use an amplified coax antenna at home for my local tv. Got me thinking if something like that exists for hotspots using the ts9 connector. Powered by a USB port for portability. Any ideas?

    Think it’d be pretty cool if it existed.

    USB can't provide enough power for amplifiing a signal. Those tv antenna ones are not that impressive either.

    The one I have works well. Without it I don’t get nearly the amount of channels.

    It’d be cool if they made one. With usb c I’m sure it could be done.
