Before my transmitter mod I had to leave the receiver in the front half of my basement to get signal. That really sucks when the computer is on the back wall.

After the mod I can take it anywhere in the house with not a problem one.

 

BTW The house has (i would guess 20 or 22 ga) metal 4'x8' sheets of siding.

From where I sit its 30' to the front wall (concrete) 4' high and 2x4 construction on top of that. Between me and the concrete there is 3 wood framed walls and one steel clad door.

 

Not that I have ever done this on purpose but when I setup the drums I always have the shelf on the far side of the drum from where I sit inside.

 

I suppose I should be doing back flips  since it works like it is. I understand why it shouldn't work but the fact is, it does.

 

The mod was very easy and actually looks pretty decent, I would recommend it to anyone having problems.


Tom,

If I did not believe in the ET-73, I would not sell them.  There a few bad ones out there, but many good ones too.  It's kinda hit and miss.  Maverick stands behind their products.  The new ET-732's are supposed to be available to dealers in mid December, but that's been delayed a month or so.  The new ET-732' are supposed to be more powerful and have better features.  I have 48 on order and Maverick shipped me a few just for the holidays.  I'll post my test immediately when I receive the units.  Stay Tuned!!!

I've had a ET-73 for a little over a year now and while it does not reach 100 ft. It does work from behind my new 10x16 wood storage shed to my garage without the mods.

I didn't think it was gonna work from behind that. I plan on doing the mods some time...So I have to say I am a happy SOB!!!

Well sort of....Its a dog house...or a Dog-Mahal as Mrs SOB calls it.  The back portion is a covered Dog Kennel with a door into the back of the barn. Inside is an insulated sleeping box with access to thier food and water buckets. I have 3 of the happiest pooches around this winter.

Yep the damn dogs get a roof while I still have to stand out in the rain to tend to my smokers.

I love my dogs.

Todd,

 

I am actually happy since I did the mod to my therm, its works great now, I have even taken it 3 houses down the street and still received signal.

 

I didn't like the read on Dicks post, he reminds me of my sister in laws boyfriend, an self centered know it all. I can't think of a post from him that was actually useful, and as mentioned above I would love to see his post removed.

 

My goal was to let the folks know that the mod really does help the performance of the unit if they are in a poor reception area.

 

 

I also read something above about the stufz press.

 

What is the deal if we mention SMF??

I just sent the link to my dad as a hopeful hint as to what a great x mas gift it would be.

 

Thanks for the info Todd, and pls let us know when you are able to get the new mav's ready for us to order. I would like to try one.

I actually went out and purchased (2) antenna covers to do the conversion, but never got around to it.  If anyone wants them let me know?

 

All you need is some wire and the instructions to do the upgrade.

LOL---Another member of the Dick fan club.

 

If I remember correctly the only deal for SMF from the stuffz guy was to expedite the order, which is plenty, when you consider the patience we meat smokers have, while waiting for a new toy! wink.gif

OMG Bear, did he have a fan club and I didn't know about it????  LOL

 

Thank You for the info on the stufz, I will pass that on to my dad. Even with him not being a member maybe since its for me it will make it for x mas for me to open.
