Here's a pre-amp question that stumped me but I'm sure someone here can answer:
- a setup has separate UHF and VHF antennas on different masts
- there's a pre-amp on the UHF antenna (one that has separate VHF, UHF-combine inputs)
- the feeds from both antennas is joined after the power inserter with a UVSJ
So on the pre-amp, is there any advantage to having the Separate/Combine switch in either position? I'm thinking it wouldn't matter since if in the combine position, any VHF signal the UHF antenna pulls in will be filtered out by the UVSJ anyway. Or will putting it as separate give a 2nd filtering that would materially improve the result?
In either setting, I assume it is useful to put a terminator on the unused VHF input on the pre-amp, correct?
Thanks for your advice!
