Hi everybody
I have the RSP1A and my antenna feed line is 20 feet away.
Has anyone had any luck using a long USB extension repeater cable with the RSP1A?

I was fortunate enough to find a 50ft USB cable that worked very well. It had the active transceiver in the middle and a ferrite bead on each end. Recently, I went back to the same e-bay vendor to get another one and they sent one with the active transceiver at one end and no ferrite beads. Consequently performance was horrible and I sent it back. If anyone finds a new source for a 50ft USB 2.0 cable that works well, please post about it.
