Re: Pre-amp?



Hi Jim -

I think you're on the right track and will enjoy the digi's.  A preamp is
almost a must with a 50 foot run of coax.  I have used the Mirage preamps
and they do the job just fine.  My run is also about 50 feet with 9913
although I use crossed yagis.   I'd start with KO-25.  I also use the
PacComm tnc and WISP.  Le me know if you run into any difficulties setting
them up.

Others will have to advise you on the satgate link.
