Re: How far should one separate a LNA and its associated downconverter, and Why?


Provided that the downconverter and preamp are stable, there is no need to 
put any cable between them.  If either is unstable, having some loss 
between them can help to alleviate any interaction problems.  Short lengths 
of cable, unless they are very lossy, will likely not have much of an effect.

If there is an unfavourable interaction, there will probably be certain 
(short) lengths which help and certain lengths which make things worse.
