Question about Lands Phones

1 Answer

800m bag phone fails to communicate in remote location when attached to 10db Yagi antenna with or without 10 db amplifier, and when disconnected also fails. A colocated standard cell phone frequently does work.

    Phone works fine with only it's own eight or ten inch whip(?, its stiff, I don't know what it's called) antenna when carried into an area with good service, ie, a Verizon reciever/transmit tower in line of sight. Fails at home, where line of sight is not obtainable and where, by the way, it used to work fine, with either it's own antenna, or the Yagi alone, or the Yagi-amplifier hook up. Meantime a normal, small cell phone with only it's internal antenna works intermittently, or do you mean somehow all it's antennae are failing?

Hi there,


this could be a problem on the unit antenna. try to relocate or adjust the atenna range. also check if your phone is still register on the remote phone.

if the problem was still there, this could be antenna problem.

How do i get my Dynex TV to work on an antenna


Easy. First put up a good outside or wall antenna. Then run a coax cable (not flat lead wire) from the antenna to the tv. To do this you need to get a "balum" to go from the antenna to the coax wire. It's a small plastic 'transformer' (( about the size of your pinky finger)). The other end of the coax wire should have an 'F' connector put on it so it can screw into the F connection on the back of the tv set. Then get your remote and go to the input of your tv and change it to antenna input. Then do a channel scan. Let it finish scanning and it will let you know how many channels it picked up. If you're in a big city then you may pick up as many as 100 or more channels. If you're in the country, you may only pick up about 5 channels! If you need more channels then go back to Home Depot or Lowes and get an 'antenna amplifier'. Hopefully one that has about 25db gain. Most only have about 10db gain but the higher the number the better. It should be put inline between the tv and the antenna so you'll need another coax cable for the amplifier to the tv. The wire that comes from the antenna goes directly to the 'input' of the amplifier. Then from the 'output' of it to the tv. You'll love it once it's done and it's cheaper than cable or any other paid service!

Have lost all channel 2 stations


I assume you are having a problem with OTA channels. On some TVs, if a digital channel doesn't have enough signal strength, the channel list will get edited to exclude it. Have you checked that your antenna is pointed in the correct direction? My external antenna sometimes turns in high winds. Turning it back to the original direction improves the signal strength so that the tuner works. Then go into the Menu and find the Setup or Channels sub-menu to attempt to rescan for channels. (If you add a comment with the model of your TV, I may be able to give the specific sub-menu details for scanning for channels.)

If your antenna has an amplifier, try using the antenna without that amplifier. A few times, the amplifier/splitter attached to that external antenna has been damaged. Then the amplifier becomes a filter and blocks some channels. If you are far enough away from your local station's transmitter and can't receive the signal without the amplifier, replace it.

If another TV receives the stations, the problem is more likely to be the tuner for the TV itself. These can be damaged by a surge from the antenna. The solution is to get a set-top box with an ATSC tuner or replace the TV. Some sites may have replacement tuners (like shopjimmy.com that salvages parts from TVs with damaged screens); however I don't know if they'd have the part you'd need.

I hope this helps.

Tried to hook up a HD antenna but it won't work


HD is pretty critical and if a indoor antenna do not expect much or anything for that matter.

Try cleaning the knob, it may have dirt in the Volume,Squelch. Spray Tuner cleaner inside knobs (After removing knobs off top, may have to take off cover to do this) Make sure unplugged when cleaning it. Make sure speaker wires soldered good. Change speaker to new one --if possible. Get a outdoor antenna with a Booster for scanners. Try to see if antennuator is on radio..It may be switch that says 0db--10db selector. make sure its on 0db for indoor types...10 db for outdoors. Adjust sqelch until it stops hiss--keep it 2 notches above hiss for weak signals.

How do I strengthen my wireless signal? I am using a Linksys router.


The easiest is to replace the small antenna with a higher gain one. You get some very effective 8+ db gain omni directional antennas for linksys on ebay, amazon etc.
If you are in one direction you can also use a Yagi antenna (Directional) with high gain (20+db gain)
Normally the problem is not just the router, but the connecting device as well.
Keeping in mind you have 2 way comms between 2 devices. The router and say a laptop. ideally you should upgrade both antennas. As the best antenna on an Linksys AP will not fix a weak laptop signal. (it will transmit better, and receive better, but the laptop should also transmit and receive better)
Hope it helps

Hi, I am thinking of buying a dx-95t. I am a novice but I do not want to start with some rubbis and upgrade later. It would be used in a house in Budapest Hungary to communicate with friends locally or...


To be able to get the same distance in all directions for local use the best type of antenna is a vertical with as much gain as possible. Most makers quote gain in db and this means how much better the antenna is than a plain wire antenna. This antenna will also work for dx on sidebands but the signal goes out in all directions the same distance.

If you want to get a longer range in one direction you have to sacrafice the distance in other directions. To do this you need a directional beam antenna. There are several brands with very little between any of them. What you need to be looking at, if you decide to use a beam type antenna is either "yagi" or "log periodic array" antennas. These are types of antenna rather than brand names. The log periodic array will give the longest range and the yagi will give the next best. Log periodics are very expensive but give the best results. Yagis come with different amount of elements. The more elements it has the better it works but even yagis with 3 to 4 elements give significant improvements over vertical antennas. Because both these type antennas concentrate the signal in one direction you need to be able to rotate it to the direction you want to send, and receive, the signal unless you only want to send it one direction. This means that you might need a mast and rotator which allows you to turn the antenna from a control beside the radio. These make the hobby even more expensive so it depends on how much you can afford to spend. Also make sure that the antenna you buy is resonant on the frequency you'll be operating on i.e. 27Mhz. Otherwise you'll burn out your radio. If you google the different types of antennas you'll find places selling them. You can also buy an antenna tuner that matches antennas to your radio if the frequency is not exactly matched to the radio. It reduces your power out a little but makes very little difference to the range of your signal. Also get the antenna as high as possible to a maximum of 30 feet. After that the gain is offset by the loss of signal through the co-ax cable. Use low loss co-ax cable to reduce the amount of signal you lose between the radio and the antenna.

Having said that I've contacted America from the west of Europe several times using a vertical antenna so you might not want to go for the best.

You need to be aware that there's an eleven year sunspot cycle which affects the long range radio communications. At the height of the sunspot activity you'll get long ranges without any difficulty and at the low you'll rarely get long range. At the moment we're just coming out of the low so it will be another few years before we reach a high. Just don't judge your dx activity on how well you do at the moment.

Good luck with the radio and if you enjoy it consider becoming an amateur radio operator. It gives you more frequency bands to use so the sunspot activity doesn't limit you so much as other frequencies improve with low sunspots. I started off with CB and am now an amateur radio operator for over 30 years.

Hello

If your TVs internal telescopic antenna has broken, you can us an external antenna from connecting to the rear antenna socket. For that you have to buy some extend of antenna cable, and a yagi antenna; as it is better for reception. If your TV screen size is 14" or below, a small wire of length 2 mteres or so is enough. Buy one Balun coil assembly fro electronic sparepart shop, and connect this wire to it, connect it to the antenna socket at the back of the TV, and with picutre just wave it to some side where you get the maximum picutre clarity.
If you TV screen size is more than 14 inches, external yagi antenna shoud be used for claear transmission reception, and it must be directed well towards the tranmitter also. Alaingning it is a trial and error process, at which position you gets the clearest picture, without any Ghosts. OK.

Amp protection light comes on when raising volume...


It sounds like you either have too low of an ohm load or the voltage is dropping at the amplifier's power terminal.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.


If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect one speaker and see if it shuts down. If it doesn't, disconnect that speaker and connect the other speaker. If it only shuts down with both speakers connected and the voltage is staying above 12v, the ohm load is probably too low and you'll need to rewire the speakers.

Some 4-Runners have a factory system that uses a separate amplifier to power the rear speakers. In this case you need to activate the amplifier using the blue/white remote output from your Alpine deck. It sounds like the wire that activates the amplifier is currently attached to the deck's blue "power antenna" output, so that the amplifier is only on when the tuner is selected. Disconnect whatever is attached to the blue wire behind the deck, and attach it to the blue/white wire instead. That should solve the problem.
