Oh, I have not ordered it yet. Hopefully very soon. Probably wait for warmer weather to get it going.
Primestar31, your suggestion makes sense to just go ahead with DC pass, might be useful down the road. No harm to have it. Good to hear it only takes a few weeks.
bwam, yes it implies that a user could do a Main antenna and possibly add 3 additional channels. In my case I get 17 and 22 off the backside and it is not always "perfect". As in I've lost a rear channel twice in the past 6 months or so. Which is unacceptable. I have a spare 91XG that I plan to pick up those two stronger rear stations, split that signal and and let the inputs filter it I presume... Now you are making me think. CH 49 will be an experiment to see IF I can pick it up once I stack or gang a couple of 91XG's, then insert that station. It is a weak, low wattage repeater
I would expect some drop as noted in the design spec's. Currently I feel like a have a couple db to spare off the front (though my weakest front station is -10NM(db)) and am willing to give it a go (with =20db gain on that channel, but my SNR is currently holding @ 30+). IF Ch. 49 can take the insertion loss, is unknown. Worst case I just play tropo with it to the South and run it straight into a dedicated Aero-M.
This is all an experiment.
What I do not know is how much collateral damage there will be to adjacent channels. My CH 17 is adjacent to an CH 18 PBS, could I lose it, probably. Do I have another PBS - yes at about 60NM. Ch 22 might take out 21, and Indy station I never watch, no concern there.
But for crazy folks like myself, it provides an interesting challenge.
