Since you are experiencing trouble with the transmitters so far away from the cable box, I'd suspect a cable problem and one that isn't necessarily right at the cable box. It could be the point of...

That price is about what I paid for my TYT9000. Getting to use it is the fun part. Though rare, I've even made a few simplex contacts. It usually starts as a repeater contact and then a move over to...
