    How do you fit the antenna on the monitor?? It's a male SMA on the display for some reason and both of my SpiroNETs are male as well. Is there an adapter someone can link me? Or perhaps a local dealer that might have it? Like Radio Shack or a hardware store? Thanks.

    You need an RP-SMA to SMA adapter - or preferably a different antenna with SMA (I believe the antenna gurus will say that adding adapters or anything will contribute to some signal loss).

    Google "RP-SMA to SMA adapter" and you'll get more results than you can shake a stick at... :)

    Thanks Simon, as I don't plan on going beyond a few miles I'll give it a shot. My RC Hobby bill is starting to raise eyebrows with my wife so buying a new antenna will be risky. :D
