How do I strengthen my signal?
I have a Sprint 595U and its signal is iffy while moving unless I put the adapter near a window. I hate doing this because i like my stuff hidden. I decided to buy a external antenna, it has a 13db gain. Is this a good gain? I know nothing about this stuff. The only issue I see (which i didnt notice when I bought), is that the unit is 40" tall. I may switch this to a shorter version if you guys say its ok to lower the db. The smaller the antenna, the lower the db gain.
I also had GPS signal issues si I bought a external antenna also that has a 23db gain, but its the size of a XM antenna.
Now that i have so many antenna, I decided to relocate all of them to the back, next to each other. Will this be an issue? I figured the 40" will go in the rear and then the GPS and XM on the side of that one.
Does anyone also have experience with powered amplified hidden antennas? I have a AM/FM antenna in the front, but was thinking of buying the hidden antenna so i can get rid of the stock one and not have my car look some mobile spy car with antenna all over the car.
