    There's a thread on here somewhere about this topic. In short it depends on the power requirements of your laptop. What are the specs of your AC adapter?

    Yeah, the pencil/pen thing is just a plastic point like you find with handheld PDA's. It's not a technical requirement. If you need careful pointing you can use any blunt plastic pointer such as a...

    Sure! Haven't you ever been frustrated with the people who work at the local electronics shop? If you've built a car computer you've got a leg up on most of them!

    Can you elaborate on the benefits of a dual antenna system? What are the benefits of a dual array vs a single antenna with an amplifier? I'm assuming a splitter alone doesn't create a...

    Toups - if you do, please make a strong case for using as little feedline as possible. I think people would be much happier if they weren't giving away half their power on the ride to and from the...

    What about feedline loss?
