Do you hear a noise increase when you power up the preamp? If not, are
you sure you are getting power to it? Can you hear terrestrial
repeaters, and does the signal change when you cycle the preamp power?
Check your ins and outs on the preamp to make sure they didn't get
reversed. Same thing for any diplexer you may be using as a high pass
More of the obvious...sure you are tracking correctly, and at the right
I wouldn't suspect any of the cabling or adapters other than one being
flat out broken. The preamp should easily overcome any shortcomings of
the cable you've described.
