Hi Norman-Back in the days of A0-40 (sobsob) I used (still do) a 3731AA downconverter with a three foot off center dish (primestar).  I ran about 50 feet of RG6 and I found at times I still needed additional attenuation.  I applaud you getting ready for the next HEO!  If we all did that it might apply some pressure "somewhere".

Hello to All, 

Looking for suggestions for feed lines to my preamps, could I use RG213-U ? 
I am thinking this should be ok as both lines will be only about 10ft in 

>From the preamps, I am using hard line. 

I also have a UEK3000 receive converter for 2.4 , for feedline, could I get 
away with RG6, same cable used for sat TV. 
the run will about 80 ft.... 

Getting setup for future HEO.s 

Any suggestion greatly appreciated and many thanks in advance.
