Re: will this work ?



Hi  Tracy,
I have my signal from my downconverter split into 3!
I have one going to a Ranger 10 Meter RCI-2985- just for telemetery readout,
one going to a Icom R75 for voice, cw downlink etc, then one to an Icom
PCR-1000 to watch the spectrum display with Talk PCR software. I use basic
RG6 CATV wire with a plain old CATV splitter. I have my downconverter power
injector in the coax going to the downconverter, it does not go backwards
into the splitter. I hope this helps, 73, Keith
