What type of feed line and length do you have?
I use my TS2000 with 15 meters of RG-213 cable without any external preamp.
No problem to copy all sats, VHF and UHF downlinks.

  I suspect that one primary reason I'm not hearing the birds as I try several
  home brew stationary antennas is the used 440 preamp  I bought on eBay. It
  seems like the internal TS-2000 internal is better and that shouldn't be.
  And just when I'm getting results with these home brewed antennas!  Is there
  any way I can verify failure in the mirage kpc1/440? I too got tired of
  mistakenly putting too much rf in an old ARR preamp I had and fried it,
  suggesting that I switch to the mirage amps like those I use at the home qth
  with good results.
