How much cable loss can be tolerated between the LNA and the RTL-SDR stick?
I see in the docs that the LNA has a gain of 34dB, how much of that is excess?
(i.e. more than the difference between sensitivity at the LNA input and the RTL-SDR input?)
I would like to mount the antenna outside and given the issues w.r.t. power-on of the CHIP and
reflashing it, it is probably best to mount only the antenna and LNA outside and feed the signal
inside over coax (vs. putting everything in a box outside and feed it only with DC power).
But that means I need about 5m of coax, and I would like to know what loss is tolerable to know
what kind of coax to use. (preferably of course the thin teflon coax like on the antenna)
