Subject: [amsat-bb] AMSAT RX broadband Preamp

Hello group,

I received my broadband VHF/UHF/WX Satellite RX Preamp and installed it direct to the feedpoint of my
70 cm antenna. Put 11 volts DC on it, however no increase of noise on the receiver. And I do not
notice any amplication of received signals.

Taking the preamp out of circuit results in same signalstrength as before without preamp.

Any ideas?

Hans, pa0hop
