Didn't realize there were mods you could do with it.
Just got one recently for my Birthday so I'm interested as well if someone can link to it.

I'm finally getting annoyed enough with my unit...have to keep moving it around to get a signal....

Yes there is a mod. you can do that some of the members have done and have gotten the units to have tremendious range.....many, many feet away and through their house and etc

I wonder if it will work on the ET-72 that I have??? It only has one probe but it looks like the same unit and when I plug it's the probe it reads saying it's #1 probe. But thanks Jim for the link.

I wish my yard/house was big enough to make this mod necessary.

THANKS FOR THE LINKS ......Now I just have to do my homework.....got the feeling I'll give it a try though...getting too irritated moving the unit around the room looking for a good signal all of the time......!

I know what you mean, first day I was amazed cause I could take it all the way to the other side of the house but that must have been dumb luck because now I can go inside and into the living room and have to wonder if it is still connecting.
Wonder if I can boost the range to 500' then I could keep the smoker out by the shed and sit inside in the warmth (or cool air since Summer is on the way)

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.

6.5"... is that from where it's soldered on or from the top of the case where it comes out ??
