I have the new coax version of the Kitz Tech amp or pre-amp.
I did some basic test of the coax version and the results look like the same as the regular version.
Here's a test I did with the regular version :
But you have to take in consideration that the amps were tested with only one antenna (except CM7777) and if you put the Kitz after a UVSJ, you will get a small lost.
Noted. But still, very impressive indeed.
For the enclosure, I went to Addison, just minutes away from your location in walking distance, they have a weather proof enclosure for Five bucks.
Yep, just down the street from here. I'm guessing you mean those gray electrical box enclosure (with the rubber sceal)?
I'll have a look at what they have next time.
I wanted more info about what was included with the coax version, and this is the email I got from Jeffrey at Kitz Technologies :
Q: There are no picture of the COAX model, can you supply pictures of the unit and what is included with this model? Do you include a power inserter module, or do I need a separate run of coax all the way to the unit?
A: We don't have a current picture of the COAX model yet.
This model comes with an amplifier, power inserter and power supply.
You do not need an extra coax for power.
Had to make sure, right? Figured I'd ask.
I bought/tested one of their original "indoor" units, and was amazed at how much it improved the analog signals I used it for. I also installed it briefly outdoors, high on my tower where the RC9260 normally resides. It was not as good as the RC there, but better than the CM 777x I had once tried.
Intravino later borrowed, and then bought, that unit from me, and I ended up replacing it with a second (bargain basement 3rd-hand) RC pre-amp. But I have since recommended the KitzTech to all comers, and some pals of mine have reported good success with it to date.
Thanks for the info intravino & mlord.
I'll wait till my M4 is up and running to see if I need additional boost.
Since I already ordered a 3414 for my setup, I'll wait and see if it helps.
