    Hey ishtob,

    PM me. I have a contribution to your project. The internal antenna element from one of my antennas. It's the same as the original so you should have good reception with it.

    PM me with your mailing adress and I will ship it to you.

    Here's my project. Just gonna brush some paint on the explosed plastic. As far as the antenna I'm most likely going to dissasemble my zoti antenna, move the antenna into the upper housing somehow and then shave the rest of zoti's antenna down and use it to plug the hole. Its probably gonna look more like the zero antenna but wont be sticking out.

    How about I send you another antenna? I have some without the cap but I think it will stick out from the top.

    I would appreciate that very much and I wouldnt have to ruin my other one incase this project fails. I have an extra battery cover so I think im going to cut a piece and use it as the cap so I wont have to paint it and so it's exact match. The hardest part is getting an exact match to paint the rest of the exposed plastic.

    Thanks! Glad to contribute. I'm still not that satisfied with it though. I might do some more sanding. There's still some imperfection.

    This is basically what I want to do plus the painting obviously. The center is just a plastic i found and dremmelled to shape to fit the hole. I'm eventually gonna use the extra battery cover I have. It wont look as clean as ishtob but I think I'll be happy with it as long as my reception doesnt change. Now off to Kragens tomorrow.

    It's been discussed. Way too complicated to produce and very complicated to replace. Not something the end user would do.

    Does anyone have a clue why this is happening. I've assembled my internals into my modified casing. I took my regular antenna apart to use but I couldn't find a way to fit the antenna film so I just decided to just put it together without the antenna film. I still have the metal that makes contact with the board. I had to bend the top so it wouldnt stick out. Now this is the part I dont get. I did a ##33284# to check my RSSI value comparing it to my other 700 with regular antenna and most of the time I'm getting 7 more on it than the stock 700. RIght now my modified is -82 and stock is -75. Other times I'm getting similar value depending where I am in the house. Why the heck am I even getting any signal without the film antenna??? I tested my EVDO speed using dlsreports and that hasn't changed. I get about 255. I can make and receive calls as usual. What exactly does the antenna film do? This doesn't make sense but I'm not complaining. I'll have to run some more RSSI test tomorrow at work where I don't have that good of signal.

    Bar wise I have 4 bars on both. Sometimes 5 on the stock 700.

    Ok I'm now at work and I'm gettin between -98 to -95 on my modded treo and getting about -94 to -93 on my stock 700. that's about -5 difference. Signal bar I have 2 on modded 3 on stock. Sometimes the modded goes to 3 bars. This is very interesting. I'll have to monitor it to see what type of battery drain this will cause. There's so little change in RSSI that I don't think it will make a diff.

    Well here you go folks. As weird as it is. Stock -85. Antenna less -83.

    Well done!

    After close to 2 days of testing, I found majority of the time I will be about 7 RSSI lower than stock 700p. Signal bar is 1 less than stock. Is this something I should be worried about? So is this upgrade worth it? For now YES but I'm afraid when I do ever need this signal is when Iím probably gonna regret this mod.

    You could always carry around an external antenna in your car to plug into the back of the Treo if you need a stronger signal.
