RF on cellphones - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Go ahead. Make sure you set up you cellphone options for "antenna" so when you punch in the channel number on the keypad that it knows to use the over-the-air frequency and not the cable frequency. :smt005
