Re: Preamp



Ditto here.  Same experience.  Either an ARR or an SSB Electronics.

Hi Randy,

The SP-432VDG is a great preamp, I've used one for satellites and weak
signal for many years. I personally wouldn't purchase a mirage, never had
one, but haven't heard much good on them.

Also, SSB Electronics have an excellent line of preamps:

I use their 2 meter mast mount for weak signal and EME, works great.

Good Luck,
Chad
