can I use a different antenna to improve my reception if I'm in a weak spot. I notice it has an external antenna so reception should be better than my smart phone but I might need a bit more gain
I don't know yet. I haven't got the home phone yet but I'm considering it. Coverage is really spotty with my smart phone (Galaxy A5) but I was thinking if I used a higher gain antenna on the home phone it would help. The external antenna should be better anyway but putting a reflector behind it and aiming in the direction of the tower should make a big improvement.
