[amsat-bb] Which preamp to buy for 2m?

Hi all,

I just got a M2 2M4 and 420-50-11 to mount on my az/el rotor and go with my
736R. As I'm hoping to potentially work some EME with the big guns when
conditions are just right, I'm wondering if anyone can provide advice on
which preamp to get for 2m. I live in the Los Angeles metro area, so lots of
noise/QRM, and also would like something to take advantage of the 736's
preamp switch/voltage over coax option. In other words, something that
doesn't require any complicated power/switching controls, if possible. 


Any suggestions?
