I have a question for other cm-7777 owners:
Does the 'preamp box' (the gray metal box that is mounted on the mast) run pretty hot?
As in too hot to hold a finger, much less an entire hand, on?
(I'm guesstimating that it must be 120+ degrees F on the metal casing if I can't even hold a hand on it for longer than 5 seconds!)
Is this normal for a CM7777 that is powered up, pre-amping 2 antennas?
(One homemade 2-bay VHF, and one homemade 4-bay for UHF?)
Oh yeah, the antennas and the preamp are in an attic.
(in Southeast Minnesota, so it shouldn't be too extremely hot in the attic.)
The operation of the CM7777 has been great for me, so it doesn't appear that anything has failed internally.
Sort of along the lines of msu's prior post....
Always tweaking, modifying and re-arranging my electronics....
