Re: [AZ] Amp vs no Amp readings

I did say If Hoss.

I'm passing along what the tech told me. The amp was needed due to the SNR.

He wanted it at 40 or above that when in the readings get down in the 30's its problematic.

But even at that with the amp the SNR numbers don't change all that much.

I of course do not know what his testing equipment showed.

The last tech I spoke with last year told me that 40s usually only occur when the line condition is a 10. Not common. My line condition: a 10. I suspect yours is, or is close. My power levels on the DS are typically about -2.

The tech was a residential install guy. It was the install for the business side for work at home.

I don't know if the business side for stability reasons has a higher bar?

10 being good like the movie Ten? Not sure what 10 means as these figures are all ratios correct? So is 10 some quotient factor or just a descriptor?

Edit: Sorry, tech was NOT a residential install guy. Left the "not" out.
