The company owes its existence in part to satellite TV multiswitches. In 2002, Jerry Chapman wanted one of these units to distribute satellite TV to eight receivers. Despite hours of internet research and phone calls, he could not find a source for the part. While this might have discouraged other people, Jerry’s persistence paid off in many ways.
He posted about the multiswitch on an online electronics product forum. Many users directed him to a company that had a surplus of these devices. Jerry ordered his multiswitch, but he did not stop there. He realized there might be other people who wanted to get this device but did not know where to find it. This was the inspiration for the Signal Group and its many brands.
Jerry purchased as many of the multiswitches as he could. He then used his e-commerce experience to create a website to sell the devices. On October 4, 2002, Dimitry Rozenberg became the first person to buy a multiswitch from Jerry’s site. More sales began to roll in, which helped grow the Solid Signal brand and established it as a major player in online electronics retail sales.
This early success launched Solid Signal, the first of Signal Group’s brands. This online electronics store specializes in high quality, name brand, digital audio and video equipment. Solid Signal also markets its own brand of TV antennas.
In 2009, Jerry added the Signal Connect brand beneath the Signal Group’s umbrella. Signal Connect is an AT&T Preferred Dealer and DISH Authorized Dealer. The company provides satellite TV solutions for homes, businesses, and a wide variety of mobile solutions that include boats, RVs, and much more. Signal Connect is a nationally recognized expert on all things satellite TV.
