I realize this is an old thread and this topic has been discussed ad nauseam, but I am sooooo pleased with how simple thhe receiver mod was to do and how much it increased range. I recently moved my "cook's corner" about 3 feet from where I was located which resulted in the reciever not getting a good signal from the transmitter when placed next to my baseball/nascar/football watchin chair. I placed a wire in the empty hole on the receiver antenna circuit board, drilled a small hole for the wire in the case, and WOW what a HUGE difference!
hmmmm. how long is the wire you used? I am not elec engineer, but I read where 6.5" on the receiver end is MAX. If a diff length (over or under) it actually hurts vs helps.
