I'm setting up for satellite operation and considering the AR2 SP432VDG 24db preamp. A friend suggests this will likely overload the frontend of the radio (an 821H) The antennas are M2 eggbeaters. Would the SP432VDA 15db be a better choice?

Can anyone using these preamps give me some feedback on the 15db vs. 24db preamps and which might be the best way to go considering the radio and antennas I have?
