Will a connector in the middle of the current coax and extra 10 feet kill my
preamp power through the coax?

Wayne replies:

I presume you are using "N" connectors on your LMR600.  You could add a
double female N connector and a 10 foot piece of coax with little or no
effect on the voltage getting to your downconverter and/or preamp.  All "N"
connectors have DC continuity.

If your 10 foot splice uses smaller cable such as LMR400 or 9913, you can
reduce the total number of connectors by buying inline N-female connectors.
They are hard to find but they do exist.  I don't know if there is an inline
N-female connector for LMR600.
