I’ve been out of the scene for a while…
After getting my rig up and running, building my own ant’s etc - got it all nicely arranged, screwed to the joists in the attic, external areal on the ridge line. Feeding well, quite chuffed with it.
With all the bad weather we’ve had over Christmas here in the UK, noticed the rig was reporting sporadic results.
Unscrewed the coax from the filter, only to find water dripping out of the coax!
Needless to say I was a bit hacked off, and only just summoning up the post-hacked-off-interest to rebuild.
Looking at my rig today, looks like I need to replace everything up stream of the USB reciever:
In line amp
Filter / diplexer
Becuase the biggest cost of all this is that of getting someone with ladders to put the ant up on the roof line, I’d like to replace it with “good as possible within budget” componants.
I’ll post my proposed purchases and links in this thread - if people would like to comment or offer better alternatives, that’d be much apreciated! Also, be useful for other formative users…
I’m UK based, so some of the items that are recommended (PerfectVision amp etc), may not be avilable in the UK (unless someone can post links), so I’ll be looking for alternatives.
I’ll be adding updates on my progress and thoughts here, so feel free to jump in with thoughts and advice !
