Re: Large Gauge Ground Wire in Parallel with Loconet Gound Wires == Groundloop?

I’ve found that the new digitrax boosters won’t come on line if the ground wires in the loconet cables are cut.

The way I read this statement the large gauge wire in parallel to the
Loconet 'ground'  wires does constitute a 'loop' and could cause a
reliability problem.

Thus, the recommendation in Allan Gartner's website to cut the Loconet
'grounds' at the boosters is valid.  Do you agree?
