Not worth the argument to the racer who gets cheated!!!
The black box is NOT
a resistor. If you put a meter on it it will read 100K ohm... but there is more to it then that.
If you needed a loop... I (yourself) would have made a loop.
Before you keep throwing money at it.. What happened to your original box??
If your background noise is above 60... you have a problem (most of the time it's the COAX and/or the black box)
If you have the old stile black box, it should read 100K ohms across the two thumb screws or
from the center pin of the BNC connector to the outer shell of the connector. If you have the newer yellow cable you should read the same thing... 100K across the two leads or
center pin to outer shell.
The loop (you said its new)... that should read 470 ohms
If you need just the box.. you can't
buy that from AMB anymore. You either have to get a box from Big fix... or buy the new cable.
