Re: Converter Protection

My solution to this problem is:

   - things that transmit have N connectors on them

   - things that receive have TNC connectors on them

It is thus physically impossible to blow up a preamp or
receive converter by transmitting into it.

I have a couple of N to TNC patch cables, wrapped in
bright orange tape to make it abundantly obvious when
they're in use.
