On a recent Ten-Tec net, someone mentioned using an Ameco PT-3 transceiver 
preamp with their Jupiter. The results were reported as very good, with the 
PT-3 boosting the gain to overcome the signal drop that is common when the DSP 
noise reduction is turned on in the Jupiter.

Have any of you Jupiter owners out there tried this preamp? What have your 
experiences been?

I'm thinking of getting one for my Jupiter as the signal loss with DSP is 
annoying to me. I feel the Jupiter needs some sensitivity help while running 

Also, I notice some of the older Ameco PT-2's are on the used market. I don't 
have any experience with these units, but I'd assume the PT-2 would also help 
the Jupiter receiver. Are there other preamps besides Ameco that would work 

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
