[amsat-bb] Question on layout for new preamps

I am adding UHF and VHF preamps to my Satellite setup and I am trying to 
make sure I know the right order of components...

Here is what I think is right for VHF:

FT-847 --> VHF AMP  -->  SWR Meter --> SEQUENCER --> PREAMP --> Antenna

Is that right or does the SEQUENCER go before the AMP?

For UHF, pretty straight forward I think:

FT-847 --> SWR Meter --> SEQUENCER --> PREAMP --> Antenna

Note the SSB Sequencers provide power to the SSB Preamps also, which is 
why I guessed on V it went after the AMP and the SWR Meter.

Thanks for checking it out before I wire it all up.
