Too sleepy to make full ELOG. Stay tuned.
Two 25dB amplifiers (with fins!) are living in the top shelf on the PSL table, inputs currently grounded. I broke out the fused 24V power from the AOM driver to power the two amps and the AOM driver. I used the POP55 and AS165 heliax cables to get their outputs to the LSC rack, through delay lines, into demod board.
Driving with -20dBm at 55MHz, the BEATX signal chain has about 60Hz RMS noise, which is about what I measured for driving the old beatbox with a marconi. High frequency noise is a much nicer shape, though. The BEATY signal didn't seem to be getting through, will double check soon.
Still old delay cables, not nicely shielded or isolated or anything. We'll have to pipe the monitor signal from the LSC rack over to the control room analyzer now.
