OK NOW WHAT? re: a040

   I have AO40 going,  running the bbq dish and aidc down converter,  I
hear my self and have made some contacts...  but  ...   The signal
strength coming into the shack has something to be desired S1 to S3 the
MB is S3 at  most times.  Do I need to put a preamplifier between the
antenna and down converter?  Or do I need one after the down converter
to the shack?  I have allot of noise now but will this increase the
noise floor?  Also running RG6 to the shack (100 ft).   Also would it
make any difference if I mounted the bbq dish horiz. or vert?
rig is ft847 tx/rx.
straining to hear,
Jim Hertel
