If it does have an amplifier, and is designed for US TV frequencies,
it's going to amplify a lot of non-TV stuff here that will cause no

It's likely to have an amp that will amplify everything from DC to
light. OK, I exaggerate, but I well remember the days of VHF TV when
distribution amps would be driven into total overload by any CB
transmission within a mile.
A lot of the early masthead amps covered 40 to 860MHz and they were
useless near a cop shop or taxi office.

PS back in the day of the zx spectrum I wrote a program which
suggested it kept the edge connector clean using HF signals if run
for a few minutes once a day. it made pretty patterns in the borders
and nice sounding noises.
It was of course free and an April Fool joke. Some people did believe
it though as I invented a credible eastern European inventor to
I once programmed a process control terminal at a GM plant in Michigan,
whereby if you pressed any key other than one of the ones that
actually were needed, PacMan ate his way through the screen, it
displayed "Now You've Done It!", and finally reverted to the original
screen. It stayed there for several years, I recently met the GM
engineer I was working for at the time.
You have to have some fun while working.
