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
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.
