That is correct: for the new boxes, we moved the RF-receiver into the
antenna, so that only low frequency signals have to be sent to the
test-box.  This can easily be done with RS-422 and 100's of meters of
regular CAT5 cable.

Yes, we plan to upgrade the sites with antenna problems to the new
hardware.  I only received the last cables needed for the upgrade
yesterday and there are still a few details to be sorted out, but we
should be able to announce more details in a few days to a week.
