Has anyone else notice that temperature on the Deca's RG6 connection is extremely hot? So much so that you can barely touch it. Can this be normal?

Yep, that's normal.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Warm/hot, yes, but mine aren't so hot I have a hard time holding on to them.

Mine are medium-warm-hot. My Cen-Tech IR thermometer (made in China, purchased at Harbor Freight for 26.95 so you know its a high quality instrument) says its about 90F.

Would guess that's what mine are too.
Since these are around a 1 milliwatt transmitter, I'd not surprised.

ok.....thanks!

I have a lot of home electronics and I have never encountered a properly working component so hot to the touch.

If everyone says a hot temperature is to be expected than so be it!
