SMA Solder Help

Anyone out there willing to modify a unit with an SMA connector (for a small fee, of course)? I’m trying to build a MOAN but the modification is a little outside my skill set.

Seems like it’s been pretty quiet lately on the external antenna front…However, I just picked up a few GTM’s this week and I’m happy to say I have successfully added an SMA connector to one. With a cheap $10 900mhz rubber duck antenna connected, my tests show a 111% increase in RF power according to my field meter. Can’t wait to try it out with a better quality antenna.

With that said, I’d be happy to help you out. What is your time frame for getting this accomplished?



Posting up some pics would certainly give us more to talk about. The theoretical side of this gets discussed a lot, but what will get things stirred up is a few clear shots of the practical side of what you did.
