Unless you enjoy repairing stuff, and many do, I would just send it in. ARR will do a good job,
quickly, and right. Not all GaAsFETs are equal, and they will check the noise figure and gain as part
of the checkout before shipping.

Subject: [amsat-bb] ARR preamp repair
Anybody ever try fixing an ARR P432VDG preamp yourself? I was recently
given one that I suspect was transmitted into. Drawing more current than
spec'd (45 mA vs. spec of 25), no S-meter increase when connected. Or am I
better off just sending it in? ARR's website says most GaAsFET preamp
repairs run around $22.50 plus shipping...
