It's not going to do you much good, even the UHF side of those antennas tops out around 960mHZ and nothing in that amplifier is meant to broadcast. You really do need dedicated LTE equipment to get things to work properly.

Do you know what bands you are trying to pick up?

The amplified just ups the power, it doesn't change the frequencies of the antenna. Unless you have a super high band TV antenna, which UHF and VHF are not, a filter will not move it up to the needed frequencies, only selectively block the ones that are there.

This guy managed to pull it off, but your mileage may vary.

An Amplifier will cause you pain. It’s better to get a good antenna that has MIMO.

The problem with an amplifier as it Increases you’re single also increases your noise so your Signal to noise is poor!
