Pre-Amplifiers

Pre-amplifiers are used to boost the receive signal only, they have no effect on your transmitted signal.

In general we find them to offer very little advantage on FM because they will boost any background noise/interference just as much as they boost any wanted signal.
However on AM and SSB they can make a significant difference.
