      This particular excerpt is from a section on microwave radio.

      "The radio transmitters and receivers are always located as close as
      possible to the antenna tower to minimize losses in the antenna waveguide
      system. At a multiplex location, the FM terminals similarly are located in
      close proximity to the radio equipment to minimize IF cable losses. In many
      cases, this leaves the FM terminals at a considerable distance from the
      multiplex terminals (up to 1000 feet typically, but up to a few miles in
      some instances). A wire-line entrance link (WLEL) is used to connect the
      multiplex terminals to the FM terminals. The WLEL is a coaxial cable
      facility that, depending on its length, may or may not be repeatered. The
      link includes baseband amplifiers and cable equalizers to compensate for the
      loss and attenuation shape of the cable."
