DC output 8V + @ 100 ma.
LED indicator.
Very low hum and noise levels.
Fully screened and filtered.

TYPE 9252
Weatherproof enclosure for all LNA types with
fully sealed cable glands,complete with mast fixing and
internal thermal insulation.
Masthead Amplifiers
It is common practice to use unprotected masthead amplifiers that rely on
weather resistant protective boots pushed on over the connectors to help
prevent water damage to the plugs and sockets. However this is not
completely waterproof and moisture can cause bad connections in
plug/socket assemblies, resulting in intermittent signal and/or increase of
noise and a gradual loss of preamplifier output. This is expensive in time
and money to trace and rectify.
A better approach is to put the amplifier into a fully sealed case which uses
waterproof cable glands.

LINK TO 9260 PERFORMANCE FIGURES
(SUPPLIED BY G.L. DYBWAD, USA)
The types 9260, 9261 and 9267 all combine very low noise with bandpass
filtering to deal with interfering signals. All units have transient protection
incorporated in both RF and DC paths.
          Operating guidelines

In order to obtain the very low noise figures offered we use PHEMT transistors. These are more
sensitive than Mosfets to pulse transients caused by storms. To help combat this we added low
frequency input filtering to the preamps which has proven to be very effective. Since we started
using it less than 2.5% of our customers have had to return units for repair.

An important consideration is that the antenna should be properly grounded to a copper spike. This
gives the transients a direct route to earth and reduces the likelihood of damage by at least 50%.

It's sensible to use a surge arrestor on the mains input, as you would to protect any equipment in
the home.
The 9261 is now available with filtering
to limit the top frequency to 700MHz in
line with recent changes to digital
broadcasting in the United States.

All other specifications remain the same
as the original 9260.

Type 9270
This very low noise, high signal handling capability amplifier is designed to
increase the output of decoders to eliminate drop-outs and pixelization.
It may also be used to compensate for long cable losses and for driving multi
TV outlets. It is designed for indoor use only and is fitted with a feed-through
for local DC supply.
FREQUENCY SELECTION CHART
Choose the best LNA for your wanted reception.
The type 9262 covers VHF and UHF channels with a frequency cut-off at
700 MHz. All other specifications remain the same as the type 9254.
