Thread: 1.3 Pepperbox antenna question

    1.3 Pepperbox antenna question

    Have a question about video clarity between by two 1.3 antennas.

    I have two 1.3 receivers along with a Blue Beam Ultra antenna, 5.8 repeater and Eagle Eyes Diversity receiver mounted to the back of my Pepperbox. I'm also using a high pass filter between the Omni antenna and the receiver. Question I have: Is this additional equipment mounted to the back of the Peppebox interfering with the performance of the Pepperbox ? When the blue beam antennae is used, the picture is clear. When the Pepperbox is used, there is snow in the picture.

    I could separate everything from the back of the pepperbox and mount on a separate board if necessary. Anyone have similar experiences ?

    Thanks

    Edit: After looking at other Ground Stations here, Everyone is mounting their hardware on back of their antennas. So, must not affect reception. Have Fun Flying.

    The EagleEyes has a gain adjust screw for the 2nd input to match signal strength with the 1st one, perhaps adjusting that will help.

    Thanks for the help here. Will look into this gain adjust screw.
