Re: How to find the booster common?

if it s an NCE booster like the SB5 / DB5 with the plastic case, you can use a screw on the metal back plate

Please tell us what brand and model of booster you are using.

Is it being fed from AC (transformer) or a DC power supply?

Alas the case is all plastic...

A very few of the early booster setups didn't have a ground connection on the main power plug.  So you had to do a case tap. But I can't remember what model booster that was.

OK, sorry if I supplied the wrong information.  I was always of the opinion you needed to connect a ground to the case.  I can make my installation much cleaner if I can remove the ground wire connected to a screw on the case and use this input.
