- I just connect the downconverter between the antenna and the 50 ohm antenna input on the DX-394. You could use a coaxial switch if you wanted something that was quick and easy to switch back and forth.

- If you are after VHF DX, I would do two things:
1. Choose an IF that is free of birdies.
2. Shield the DX-394 so that there is minimal interference from
external signals on the IF. That assumes, of course, that the down
converter is also shielded and connected to the DX-394 by co-ax.
If you're just after the local repeaters, then these are of little
importance. Your bigger problem is that there is no FM demod in the DX-
