    I used a radioshack 0.1uF Ceramic Capacitor.
    Part# 272-109

    I'm looking to try a inline FM car booster.

    A tried a Inline FM / AM 20db signal booster and it made it worse.

    I guess I'm gonna wait for a better USB FM or FM solution. And live with this crappy reception for now.

    If it works.
    I allready shelled out 25 for the signal booster and that did nada.

    I would be willing to pay 10 for a inductor if they really improve the reception.

    I finally got a chance to try and install the D-Link in the car. Wow, I went from perfect signal to absolutely nothing. I don't see why it would be so bad. If it's out in the open how could that give u worse signal than indoors?

    so I'm back at square one....I'll justhave to experiment with the d-link in the car, not the house.

    Hi,
    do you point out us that type of change you have done to the hardware of the D-Link to make to correctly receive a good signal to the D-Link?
    Even with some photos?
    You would do you satisfy all the boys of the forum
