Ideal for use with SDRplay's SDR Receivers, or any other Receiver that has a +5v DC BiasTee option.
amplifier consists of two units: a weatherproofed outdoor head unit for
connection to a suitable loop and an optional bias tee unit to provide
DC power up the coaxial cable to the outdoor unit.
The outdoor unit is housed in a polycarbonate box with stainless steel antenna connections and a BNC socket. The bias tee unit is a PCB with two BNC connectors and a DC socket to take DC power from a battery or power supply.
A 2.5m (8 ft) length of wire is supplied as a simple loop to make a
first loop for initial testing or even permanent installations.
