The other choice of pre-made cables was @ 10m
If I used the full 15m cable it would mount on upper spreader 11m above the Pilothouse.
Would the 17dB gain claim help to minimize cable loss?
If not, I could always mount on lower spreader @ 6m.
I just ordered the 15m of cable set to have the upper option
Thanks for researching.... I'm depending on my IT guy to have sourced correctly.
Is Delphi a reliable manufacturer?
