A long winded blog post re. amplifiers

Feel free to suggest edits to the attached. Thanks.

The condensed version of this is: Choosing an antenna or amplifier will effect two common factors: signal strength and signal to noise ratio. An antenna can offer an improvement of both factors. An amplifier can only improve one at the cost of the other.

And maybe an answer to the question, "How big a pump do I need to get water out of a dry hole?"
