I know I should use the blue connectors for feeds running to the receiver. But, what about the feed(s) from the modulated output? Is it OK to use the lower cost crimp connectors for runs to remote locations?

Actually the lower cost crimp connectors will work to the receiver too.. It's just not recommended.. If I were you I would use the newer compression connectors all the way around.. Just less chance of problems in the future.

Those crimp on connectors can, and more often than not fall off after a year, or two of abuse. The compression connectors are rated for a 50lb test pull, and are a real bear to pull off. Safe yourself the TC headache, and the possibility of failing an audit thus getting backcharged.
