Today, I revised my Othernet antenna connections. Previously, I connected to my in-house located Dreamcatcher over 500 feet of RG-6 FTA feed with a 20 dB in-line amplifier at the base of the LNB mounted on an 80 cm offset fed dish.
Now, the Maverick LNB (with its 4x2x8 inch aluminum wave guide) is clamped to a simple wood block on a fixed pole mounted on the FTA antenna support. I have placed the 20 dB in-line at the base, and am running it over 100 feet of RG-6 cable to my Dreamcatcher located in an intermediate shed location, and thence on to my Wifi Router thru the Dreamcatcher’s Wifi dongle.
Performance is excellent although my SNR has dropped to from +8 dB to -9.75 dB, but well above Skylark’s -14 dB cutoff. Ken
