    Dear guys, below will be the 2 little trick of removing you short or 'ZERO' antenna.

    1)
    Cut a little clear tape of 5-7mm width and stick it on your antenna before insert into your Treo.

    2)
    If you have inserted the antenna and worried on removal.
    - Unscrew the antenna screw
    - Use a thumbtack/pin/needle to slot in the side of the case and push the antenna up.
    Don't worry, as long as you do it like shown below, there will be no risk in touching any circuit inside the treo.

    Nice advert for your product
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    Are you suggesting that the piece of tape remain on the zero antenna all the time? That would look kind of funny if you did.

    is the reception affected? I'd consider this (without the stupid tape), if my reception remained the same as it is with the regular antenna.

    .......... tape??? Not so nice to look at though.

    I see... you put the antenna on the inside. That's why the reception is affected by 20% since it has to go through the antenna casing and the phone casing. Mine is on the outside like the original antennna, so the reception is not affected.

    Am I missing the obvious? The tape is the antenna?

    No no, I think basically what he's saying is if you're trying out the antenna and you're not 100% sure, you can do that to get it back out easy..

    IE: Comparing reception between stock and new antenna. Or perhaps a "trial period". The thumbtack method looks reasonable, but seems you'd need to losen the case screws a bit too?

    Otherwise the tape wouldn't be left in place, it's just an easy way to remove the antenna.

    Great thanks khaytsus for answering for me!
    The tape is just a temporary measure.

    No need to losen the others screws, just the antenna screws will do.
    If you think the thumbtack is too thick, a needle will do as fine.

    20% reduction in reception. That may also result in a 20% decrease in battery life and a 20% increase in radiation output.

    So has anyone tried this antenna yet? It seems to me the only thing available at the moment or are there other options out there that you can order today I'm not aware of?

    Huh? You documented the 20% reduction in reception yourself.

    < edit by Sep > 20% reception decrease does NOT mean 20% more battery usage and 20% increase in radiation.

    Actually, a decrease in reception WILL lead to increased battery usage and increased radiation output. Simple physics.
