Re: Validate bias tee is on

In addition, it would be helpful to see the OPT Button/ sel...

Re: Is it my old age?

Probably not for a narrow band of frequencies. They are usually broad range LNA's. Something like 25-2000Mhz is generally what's available.... They do work...The next question is do you use the silver V3 dongle? This unit has Tbias capability whereby the dongle can power the LNA. Otherwise you need ...
