amp always nearest possible location to antenna ...
Thanks Tom. I'll have to buy an 8mtr long mini USB lead to power it then, as I'm not paying the high price for a Bias-Tee
another option is this dongle - it can power the amp with tiny modification:http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0129EBDS2/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl1&tag=rsv0f-20&linkId=9806dfa291f74f7cdb49e2cfbe3d34ebhttp://www.rtl-sdr.com/buy-rtl-sdr-dvb-t-dongles/
edit: a third way is to power the pi via power over ethernet and mount it directly at antenna and power the hab-amp via raspberry pi usb port.
Thanks for these options Tom but as I'm in the UK, I'm not going to pay the rip-off UK Import Duty. Although, I may consider the third option.
Took my mast down earlier, so I could put it back (cable wise) to how it was last week. Very bad idea, as I was tilting the mast over to lay it on the ground. I caught the wall and snapped the antenna casing. The collinear wire is still intact but just snapped the housing at the bottom but used some gaffer tape to hold it together. So, looks like I need to buy another $&*% antenna now.
I'm in destruction mode this week. When I get paid next week, I'm gonna go mental and just re buy everything again and start over: New NooLec DVB-T2 dongle, 6db Antenna, Satellite amp or Pre-amp/Filter from HAB.
End of coax by the dongle. I have 5m cable between antenna on roof and dongle in attic.
Thanks mgunther, that is what I was hoping you would say, as that's where I may put mine when/if I get one.
