Recommendations and support
1 – Do not connect the RSP1A directly to the same antenna as your transmitter, or to an antenna in the near field of a transmitting antenna as this may cause irreversible damage.
2 – The RSP1A is sensitive to electrostatic discharge which can damage the receiver if not protected or used correctly. It is recommended to disconnect the antenna in case of severe weather and to ensure an earthing of the antenna. Before reconnecting the coaxial cable after a thunderstorm, it is imperative the unloader (braid and core) to the ground.
In these 2 cases of loss of reception and RF damage, the warranty will not apply and the equipment neither repaired, exchanged or refunded. The signs of RF damage are characterized by signs of hot on or around components near the signal input, a burning smell is also an indication of RF damage.
