DBS / SMATV AMPLIFIERS

LA144R

DBS Ka/Ku, ATSC off-air or SMATV signals are required


at multiple locations connected via coax cable. Signal
loss must be off-set.

SOLUTION
Model LA144R may be placed after a DBS dish, ATSC
antenna or SMATV headend to extend the signals the
equivalent of 150 feet of RG-6 cable.

RELATED CONSIDERATIONS
LA144R amplifiers have a passive 2 to 40 MHz return
channel. They may be used to extend SWM8, SWM16
and SWM32 switch outputs.

LA144R-T
Model LA144R-T ships with a power supply. Model
LA144R has no power supply and is intended to be
powered from the output coax cables.

DESCRIPTION
Indoor / Outdoor 54 to 2400 MHz DBS / SMATV line
powered amplifiers with 14 dB gain and 2 to 40 MHz
passive sub-band return.

A P P L I C AT I O N N O T E S
DIRECTV recommends that the distance between
receiver and dish be less than 150 feet of solid
copper RG-6. At distances greater than 150 feet they
recommend a DC voltage booster and a line amplifier.
Model 4SATPL-T provides LNB powering and strong
control signal to lock the dish. Without the locker,
receivers power the WB68 which must power the LNB.

For DIRECTV (DRE) hotel systems, model SD


SWMD2 diplexers are used to extract the DECA
signals originating from H25 receivers. Model
HRvS8P 8-way splitters send the SWM output and
DRE information to each motel room H25 receiver.
SONORA model S4x8DRE is an integrated hub
consisting of the LA144R-T amplifier, (4) SD SWMD2
diplexers and (4) HRvS8P splitters.
