Re: Experiment and Instant Track

Probably not.  Most downconverters are designed such that the signal first
passes through a capacitor as soon as it comes in from the antenna jack.

> Hi all!
If I'm feeding the D/C via the coax, the IF output, will the power proceed
past the input, antenna side, of the D/C?  If it does, would it hurt the
preamp.  I understand that the preamp needs power and that would be feed to
it by itself, but my main concern is power going past the D/C.
