Hi all,

Just want to ask the necessity of having the static desiccator to be installed at 1.2m antennas equipped with 25W BUC..?

I'm not sure is it worth to install this device for such small antenna.

Any comment/feedbacks are most welcome.

They are designed and fitted for a reason.

Are you talking about ground blocks??? If so they help keep RF junk (and other stuff) out of the system, they ground the coax shield, making it more effective in keeping unwanted signals out, and your signal in.

All satellite systems should use one for safety reasons.
