DXE has now posted the NCC-2 User Manual, so the shipping date must be close. I have one on pre-order to use with my beverages and Tx antenna.
Yeah I ordered
2 active antennae
1000ft DxEng RG-6 75ohm
2 pre-amplifier cards/one for each rx antenna
receiver guard card
So it should be a steerable virtually silent nullification process and yield super high performance receive. At least in my hopes.
I talked to them on the phone and (Rod) one of the guys stated that the NCC-2 is improved in many areas, one being the operator tuning process. Supposed to be less of an art and more of a simplified process of finding the appropriate null for the signal you want to focus on or noise you want to remove.
The power supply in the NCC-2 will supply the voltage to the active antennas thus eliminating the need for an external power supply. But I need to take a look at the manual again. I can't remember if the NCC-2 has an internal AC/DC power supply or if it uses your main shack supply i.e. your linear AC/DC converter or switcher.
Im gonna run my RX antennae out to about 350 foot from the shack which is just over a 1/2 160 wavelength, my lowest band. This should give me safe separation from my only transmitting antenna, my 1k foot loop. But then I will have the receiver guard which will make it 100% safe no matter the field strength.
Im excited but very reserved as this is my first phaser system ever. I probably should have started with MFJ 1026 but I was told go big or go home with phasing/nullification equipment. I chose the latter.
