I haven't, and that's a good point - if the antenna booster has to be on, then the cable connection isn't going to work very well if I need cable + WifiRanger. For us it's not a huge problem because...

Okay, so I spent about two hours messing with the thing tonight, with no luck.

The problem I'm having is that the fuse blows as soon as I try to turn it on, but I can't figure out why. I was able...

Got mine today! I'm hoping to install it at the rally this weekend. Unfortunately I only have a 6' ladder so I'm not sure how that is going to play out. They included the power thing for me, too.
