Question about Kyocera wild card Cellular Phone

Open Question

Reception. Where's the internal antenna located so I can amplify it?

I make phone calls from a basement. My previous phone, a kyocera kx160, worked fine most of the time with the occasional interference or call drop, so the signal isn't super weak. However, after the demise of the kyocera kx160, a friend provided a nearly new kyocera m1000 "wildcard" phone. In the same environment, this phone has a great deal of difficulty keeping a call going. I thought I'd attempt one of those "as seen on TV" stick on signal amplifiers, which, in theory, I'd want to put as directly over the antenna as possible. At the same time, I'm using a booster to get the signal through my window from outside (it's designed to improve calls made from within cars).

1) Where, exactly, would the antenna be in this phone?
2) Any other ideas?

Thanks!!!

James

We have recently moved into a new house. When moving our tv into the house it won't find any of the channels. The TV is a 44inch Sony Bravia. It is showing on the Tv a weak signal. We have brought a...


Are you trying to get the OTA channels? In that case you need to check out sites like antennaweb.org and tvfool.com. In many places, an indoor antenna will not work well for digital reception and both of these sites will recommend an antenna type for your location. They also give the direction to point the antenna for the stations. Antennaweb is very conservative in its listings. Tvfool gives significantly more information about all the stations around you that may be receivable with the largest antenna and correct positioning.

I hope this helps.

(Antennaweb.org lists only two digital stations in my location. With an exterior antenna, amplifier, and rotor, we actually get 10 in our standard setting and can get additional stations (losing the regular channels) on changing the antenna orientation.)

There are areas (such as basements) where reception is worse than other places. Is it working properly upstairs? If so, then I would say location, location, location!

I-mate Jama 101 Reception problem


Hello. I boght one of this but at home I had no reception. I had to take out the camera because I cannot use a camera at work and I tried something I had done with my previous phone. there is an external antenna conector. I take a piece of thin insulated wire ( as the one used on fixed phones) peal off about 3 mm and inserted it into the cell phone's external antenna, route the wire inside phone and close it carefully. For my cell it really worked. Now I have 50% signal at home and 100% on the street.
hope it work : )

Poor reception on atsc portable tv


an external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna

Bad reception w/ Panasonic RF-544


I solved the problem, but I did not "fix" the problem. Rather than rig an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544 radio, I put it upstairs where it has good reception. I put the new Sony ICF-38 downstairs where it brings in the stations I listen to. The advertsizing claim for the Sony ICF-38 is that it has "Good Sound and High Sensitivity." I believe it does have "high sensitivity" because even in the basement it brings in my desired stations. (I am still curious to know if I could have rigged an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544.)

Cell phone reception dead after using amplifier


I had this same problem with a motorola razr some time back. Some cell phones have a built in switch (such as the Razr) inside the external antenna connection. In the case with my razr, I
evidently pushed the adapter into the phone too far. I later had to jump out the switch inside the
phone to make it work with it's internal antenna again. Unfortunately, I could'nt use that same phone with my amp again. Just a thought on your problem.

I bought a 32" conia tv and i cant get good reception! i have bought a amplified antenna and a hd set top box and still no good reception. my other tv's in the smae spot have had no reception issues....


well it's the same as the days of old, the antenna has a range of reception. the further the sations antenna, the lager your antenna must be. just because you bought an amplified antenna does not mean you will receive the deep fringe station. also the antenna must be UHF and VHF to receive the broadcast in digital. most of the braodcasters have gone with the UHF band because it is more stable for the bandwith of digital broadcast. the UHF band is very directional as well, so you must be pointing to the broadcasters antenna. no set top antenna will work if you are further than 15 miles of the broadcasters antenna. the roof top UHF/VHF antenna with a preamp is the way to go. I have tested every compact antenna and unless you live in the city that the broadcast generates you will get no reception with these. terks are junk, and any small amplified antenna does not work if you are in low lying areas. roof top, roof top,.....ROOF TOP!!!!!
