What would be a decently priced antenna booster for my pro-106 ? I do have an antenna mounted near my window, could not mount outside.

Thanks for any replys

I second the suggestion to use a mag mount antenna instead of any preamp on your pro-106. File cabinets, a baking pan on a book case, refrigerator makes a great place to anchor it!

Magnetic ?

I am no rocket scientist by any means, but why would a magnetic mount on a filing cabinet boost my signal ? i have a small file cabinet next to my bedroom window in which i could mount it. What is it ? Does the magnetic freq. pull in more of the " airwaves " to my pro 106 ? ? ? ?

another Suggest get a mag mount & set on top of a metal file cabinet or a cookie ( sheet pan
Wow, will a cookie sheet really work? I already have a ugly looking homemade ground-plane antenna in the middle of the bedroom that I am embarrassed by when company comes over, but if a cookie sheet works. I could use it for Missouri State :)

Pre-Amps do work,yes they bring in noise, but they can be functional if you do things properly, no one say's you have to run the pre-amp wide open. and without an outside antenna, your best bet is to try a pre-amp and see if it helps, antenna's on cookie sheets will NOT boost your signal....and I believe this is what the OP asked. Antenna Booster......
