In case you do not have an amplifier between SBL-1 and RX2500 I suggest
you run the Delta 44 at max gain. Then the NF at the RX2500 input will
be about 9dB so you will have NF=15dB at the mixer input. Suitable
gain will be 25 to 35 dB depending on whether you want low system NF
or high dynamic range.
