External Antenna for 8300?
I would like to maintain signal whilst sailing or travelling between the Islands of the Bahamas and Caribbean and to do this I would like to install an antenna high up on my boat mast ...... I did this in the days of the "Brick" and it worked fine.
Is it possible to install an external antenna on the 8300?
The antennas for the modern BlackBerry devices are installed at the bottom of the unit.
I don't think it's possible to access the actual antenna connector without taking the Berry apart, and even then I don't know if an adapter could be found.
What you might be able to do is get an active/passive antenna system.
You might start by taking a lookie at the link below. You'd need to be able to swap out that puny antenna already on the unit, but this is a start towards what you're looking for.
Thanks, ma077146. An excellent starting point, indeed.
