I am working with several quite low-gain receiving antennas (K9AY loops 
and BOGs).  I think I can use some additional gain, but am debating 
whether the preamp really has to be at the antenna end of my fairly long 
feedline.  I know that if this was 2 GHz, there'd be no question, but 
what are the pros and cons, particularly given the extra complexity of 
getting DC out to the antenna end.
