Re: Adding Preamp to 2.4 Gig

The only thing that makes this a bit undesirable for me is that I've been 
playing with 4 different downconverters so far.  Thus, modifying a 
downconverter is sort of multiplied by a factor of 4 for something as 
fundamental as power.

For a long term "permanent" application, this is probably the way to 
go.  But I think a 12V tap out of the coax is something I'll try...
