Hi All.

Finally managed to get my kit version of the DEM pre-amp on some test 
equipment today. I used the RFC that's printed on the DEM board to power it 
directly down the cable from a basic Drake converter.

The DEM  13ULNA checked out at  0.47dB Noise figure and 15dB gain.
When combined with an exceptionally poor Drake of 6.97dB NF, the combination 
gave a system noise figure of 1.13dB.

There may be some doubts about return loss, but overall that's a  pretty 
amazing product from DEM.
