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.
