Currently I have my LNBlock downconverter mounted at the antenna.
It is a High Sierra Microwave 432M7.
The antenna is a Uhf Ringo ranger set at the boiiom end of the band.
It is 25 feet up right now.
So, how do I realize more signal level?
Using my FT-950, both preamps on I can hear signals well.
I have about 75 feet of RG-8X coax at the output of the converter to my shack.
The test paper shows 25 DB gain. I expect this has to be on the UHF side.
I am thinking of a "eggbeater style" antenna to start with and then some hieght for that.
Passes are doing well to the horizon.
Looking forward to feedback.
