2415Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Re: Re-radiating antenna for Etrex KICKS BUTT!
- Oct 3, 2003I sell stick-on signal boosters similar to those sold for mobile
phones. As you "techie types" may know, the expensive digital
cellphones these days use CDMA technology, which is the exact same
technology used by the GPS system to eliminate multipath fading. So
for $19.95 plus shipping and handling, you may experience a full
12-satellite lock plus augmented WAAS anywhere you go, even indoors,
and the most amazing thing is that it *never* needs batteries. This
little stick-on antenna booster uses proven RF technology to literally
"pull signals right out of the air!" Amazing. But that's not all...
By stacking two of these stick-on signal boosters on top of each other
my little eTrex can get a lock on 24 satellites simultaneously!* This
does tend to drain the batteries a bit but...
...I also know where you can get a little packet of spurious lithium
dust you can sprinkle on your dying NiMH or Alkaline batteries, to
boost them with the full power of lithium for a fraction of the price
of new cells. To get the full "recharge" effect from the lithium dust,
it helps if you get a little on your hands and sniff them vigorously
and frequently during the recharge process...
*Your mileage may vary. 24-satellite lock result not typical. Signal
boost not available in all areas due to orbital conditions. Void where
prohibited or taxed by local law. Spurious lithium dust not legal for
use in most states and foreign countries, not for sale to minors.
