    Hello All!,
    There has been some reference to the use of an attenuator when using an amp. to boost signal power, and thought I may further pose the question for review amongst those more in a position to answer than I.
    I'm aware that many have used various signal boosters/amplifier, eg the Sunhans 5.8 model as part of their setup, however,
    I wasn't sure if not using an attenuator in the mix may ultimately create issues with the radio or other such electronics right off or over time.

    Any information or input would be appreciated.

    Regards,
