    Hello, I have a H25 with an RF antenna added to it and its kinda on the fringe of reception, doers anyone know if I can add a 10-12' extension cable to it to get it up a bit higher and have it still work??

    RF antenna looks like a stereo mini cable so thought I could add an extension cable to it

    I guess I can try and see but thought I would ask first

    Thanks!!

    Like you said, try it and see what happens. If the tip/ring connectors are the same, it should work.

    With the HR20-100, it had an external RF antenna. I added 10 feet of coax, stripped off the jacket and left about 2 feet of the copper conductor exposed. I could change channels from 100 feet away.
