I use it for portable operations with my Arrow antenna.  For my home setup
I use an ARR rf-switched preamp on the 70 cm antenna.   Heed Jerry N0JY's
warnings about never transmitting through the amsat one.  You will burn it
out every time!

 I started working some of the LEO SSB satellites again recently and came
across a broadband preamp that is sold by AMSAT. Here is the link:

Has anyone here used this before?  Perhaps this would help me 'hear' a
little better with my Arrow antenna, and I could use it for V/U and U/V
modes. For those of you that operate with an Arrow, do you use this preamp
or some other preamp?  It appears there are other preamps out there that
are more expensive, but require one per band (V or U).  This one will cover
both - seems like a good option, just wanted to get your thoughts.

Thanks!  Dave N2TEB
