Current setup at Camp:
SWM 3 LNB
H25 HD Receiver

I have about an 80-100 feet coax run (RG6) from the dish to swm 2 way splitter/receiver due to being in a heavily wooded area. I am looking to add a second H25 HD receiver to my setup. The second receiver will be in an outdoor kitchen that will require a 200-250 feetrun of coax from the splitter. Is that distance going to be an issue with RG6? Is amplification needed? Any info or guidance is appreciated.

Wow, thats a long ways .... worth a try though.
Might want to place the Power Insertor on that side of the line.

Should be ok. An H25 in my experience is much more forgiving than some of the older HD units.

I completed the install this weekend...215 ft of RG6 from the splitter to the second H25 with no SS/SQ issues. Working perfect...thanks for all the info!
